Both teams go three and out to start Sunday's must-win game with Kevin Huber punishing the football on a 56-yard punt that dropped at Houston's 10-yard line with a Jacoby Jones three-yard return to the 13-yard line and 12:59 remaining in the first quarter. The Texans call Arian Foster's name on consecutive downs, picking up the first down on 11 yards rushing combined to their own 24-yard line.

Ben Tate follows that up with his own run, finding a lane to the right against a defense completely unable to break off their blocks for a 44-yard gain to the Bengals 32-yard line.

The front seven manned up, holding Arian Foster on consecutive runs for only four yards combined setting up a third and six from the Bengals 28-yard line. T.J. Yates overthrows Jacoby Jones down the right sidelines out of the back of the endzone forcing Neil Rackers to convert the 46-yard field goal to give the Texans a 3-0 lead.
