The Houston Texans got off to a great start vs. the Ravens on Sunday afternoon when Danieal Manning returned the opening kick 60 yards to set up the Texans first drive in Baltimore territory. Houston turned the field position into three points, only the second time the Baltimore defense allowed a score on an opponent's opening drive this season.
Niel Rackers gave the Texans a 3-0 lead with a 40-yard-field goal. Still, the Ravens did well to keep the Texans out of the end zone, stopping Houston running back for no gain on 3rd-and-1 on the Baltimore 21-yard line.
Here's video of Manning's return:
T.J. Yates started sturdy for the Texans, completing his first two passes for 16 yards.
