Arian Foster had two touchdown runs, Matt Schaub threw a TD pass to Andre Johnson, and Houston's defense dominated rookie Ryan Tannehill and Miami in the Texans' 30-10 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.

Tannehill threw three interceptions in a stunning 6-minute stretch late in the first half, and the Texans opened impressively in what they believe can be a Super Bowl season.

Schaub threw for 266 yards in his first action since fracturing his right foot in Week 10 last year, and Johnson finished with 119 yards receiving. Texans defensive end J.J. Watt deflected two passes that resulted in interceptions and also had 1½ sacks.

Marcus Thigpen returned a punt 72 yards for Miami's touchdown. The Dolphins gained only 275 total yards.
