Lamar Miller TD run stakes Texans to early lead

Lamar Miller got the Texans on the scoreboard early with a 4-yard first quarter touchdown run at Baltimore.

Miller plunged through the right side of the line on 2nd-and-goal at the Ravens' 4-yard line, and the Ka'imi Fairbairn extra point put the Texans up 7-0 with 8:52 left in the opening quarter.

The score capped off a 9-play drive that went 90 yards and lasted 5:25. 

Tom Savage and the passing game came up with some timely completions, as he founde DeAndre Hopkins for a gain of 23 yards, and Bruce Ellington for 29 yards. 

Three Baltimore penalties proved costly for the Ravens, including a defensive pass interference that set the Texans up inside the 10-yard line of Baltimore.

Miller's touchdown was his eighth as a Texan, and it tied him with David Carr for 7th on the franchise's all-time rushing score list.
