Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Behind a stifling defense, a potent running attack and a crisp passing game, the Houston Texans are 4-0 for the first time in franchise history.
Danieal Manning and Kareem Jackson returned interceptions for touchdowns, Matt Schaub threw for 202 yards and two scores and Arian Foster ran for 86 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' 38-14 rout of the Tennessee Titans.
Schaub completed 20-of-28 passes, Owen Daniels caught six balls for 72 yards and a score, and James Casey had five receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown for Houston (4-0), which has outscored its opponents 128-56 this season.
Defensive end J.J. Watt tallied two of the Texans' four sacks in the triumph.
Titans (1-3) starting quarterback Jake Locker left the game in the first quarter with a left shoulder injury. On 3rd-and-7 midway through the frame, Glover Quin came untouched on a safety blitz and sacked Locker for an 8-yard loss. While Locker was going down, Watt hit him with the crown of his helmet directly on the shoulder.
