Texans Vs. Ravens: Houston Goes Three-And-Out After Botched Punt

The Texans were off to a strong start vs. the Ravens after Danieal Manning's opening kickoff return set up Houston for an early 3-0 lead. But after forcing Jacoby Jones' muffed punt, and a Baltimore touchdown, the Texans could have wasted their chance to jump on the Ravens early.
