HOUSTON -- Matt Schaub threw two touchdown passes, and Arian Foster ran for two scores as the Houston Texans dominated a showdown of the AFC's two teams, routing the Baltimore Ravens 43-13 on Sunday.
Johnathan Joseph returned an interception 52 yards for a touchdown, and the Texans (6-1) beat the Ravens (5-2) for the first time in seven meetings. Antonio Smith had two sacks, J.J. Watt deflected the pass that led to Joseph's interception, and Houston's defense returned to form after an embarrassing loss to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers last week.
Terrell Suggs, the 2011 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, had one sack and three tackles in his first action for Baltimore since undergoing surgery on his right Achilles tendon last May. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw two interceptions and was sacked four times.
