The Houston defense had no answer for Arian Foster, but it would prove not enough to avoid a huge defeat for the Texans against the Rams, 38-13, at home.
Matt Schaub went without a score on 15 for 21 passing for only 186 yards and no interceptions. Sam Bradford put up better numbers for the Rams, and wound up 12 for 16 with 117 yards passing, three touchdowns and no interceptions.
Foster was a standout player for the Texans, rushing for 141 yards on 20 attempts in addition to four receptions for 57 yards. Andre Johnson snagged seven balls for 88 yards.
The Houston defense did its part in the loss, giving up just 99 yards rushing and 117 passing.
Rams running back Zac Stacy put up 79 yards rushing and 11 receiving. After Bradford, he was the top performer for St. Louis.
The Texans head to Kansas City next week to face off with the Chiefs (6-0) while the Rams travel to Charlotte to play the Panthers (2-3).
