Joseph returned his first interception 82 yards for a touchdown to give Houston a 16-3 lead with 11:08 remaining.

Watson threw his second touchdown of the day to Braxton Miller. The second-year wide receiver caught his first score on a one-yard pass. Ryan Griffin caught the ensuing two-point conversion. The Texans headed into halftime with a 24-3 lead.

The Texans added nine more points in the third quarter. Hogan was called for intentional grounding in the endzone to give Houston its first safety of the season. Hopkins caught a 3-yard touchdown from Watson. The Texans pulled away with a 33-3 lead.
