Texans Vs. Ravens: Arian Foster Still Strong, But Houston Sputters, Punts

Arian Foster went over 100 yards rushing on his first carry of the second half vs. the Ravens. He's been terrific. But after an 8-yard carry, the Texans running back could not get Houston past the first-down marker and the Texans had to punt the ball back to the Ravens.

Trailing 17-13 after the first half, Houston had a chance to jump on top of the Ravens in the second half, but Foster rushed for no gain on second down and quarterback T.J. Yates threw an incomplete pass on third-and-short.

The drive started with another miscalculated punt return from Jacoby Jones, who is having just an awful day on special teams. After muffing a punt that led directly to a first-quarter Ravens touchdown, Jones field this kick and ran six yards backward before being tackled. Not good.
