HOUSTON (AP) -- Arian Foster had two touchdown runs, Matt Schaub threw a TD pass to Andre Johnson, and Houston's defense dominated rookie Ryan Tannehill and Miami in the Texans' 30-10 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
Tannehill threw three interceptions in a stunning 6-minute stretch late in the first half, and the Texans opened impressively in what they believe can be a Super Bowl season.
Schaub threw for 266 yards in his first action since fracturing his right foot in Week 10 last year, and Johnson finished with 119 yards receiving. Texans defensive end J.J. Watt deflected two passes that resulted in interceptions and also had 1 sacks.
Marcus Thigpen returned a punt 72 yards for Miami's touchdown. The Dolphins gained only 275 total yards.

But a report from the Miami Herald suggests that general manager Jeff Ireland needs to worry about the present, if he wants to have a future in South Florida with the team.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross wants a winner now, and, even though the source who spoke...
For the entire summer, a topic that seemed to come up a lot among Texans fans was the idea of trading running back Ben Tate, who almost rushed for 1,000 yards in a backup role last year. Most state the reason because they will lose him for nothing in a couple of years anyway, due to being stuck behind Arian Foster.
On paper, that sounds true, but one has to remember that Tate was...
