When the Texans got inside the Raiders’ 10-yard line in the first quarter, Steve Slaton was in the backfield ahead of Chris Brown. That could be a result of Brown’s costly fumble in last week’s loss to the Jaguars.
Slaton and the Texans did fail to score a touchdown on the drive. Unfortunately, Slaton went on to fumble on a different drive later in the quarter.
In New England, Joe Flacco and Derrick Mason have already hooked up six times for 77 yards with one touchdown against the Patriots. The matchup wasn’t a good one for either player entering the week, but so far this Ravens’ duo are beating the numbers.
