HOUSTON (AP) -- Kris Brown didn't let one bad foot ruin what the other one could do.
The depleted Miami secondary allowed Houston QB Matt Schaub to get the ball to his key players, WR Andre Davis, WR Kevin Walter and TE Owen Daniels. The middle of the field was open all day for the Texans to complete option routes and skinny posts, most of which went for more than 10 yards. Houston offensive coordinator Mike Sherman used mismatches in the middle of the field when Miami linebackers were trying to cover Walter and Daniels. The Texans also took advantage of the open middle on the final drive to set up the game-winning field goal by kicker Kris Brown.
