Texans 23, Raiders 14

Updated:
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Houston Texans didn't complete a pass in the 2nd half, finished the game with negative yards passing and somehow found a way to win.

That's what happens when you play the Oakland Raiders.

Demarcus Faggins scored on a 58-yard fumble return and Houston used two long returns and a pair of fumbles by Randal Williams to set up 16 more points in the 2nd half of a 23-14 victory over Oakland on Sunday.

In a season full of ugly losses by the Raiders (2-10), this one gets its own special place. In the first game since John Shoop took over the play-calling duties from Tom Walsh, Oakland turned the ball over 5 times, missed 3 field goals, allowed 5 sacks and had only 1 offensive score.

Scary thing is, Houston's offense might have been even worse.

David Carr finished 7-14 for 32 yards, failing to complete a pass in the final 32 minutes. He was sacked 5 times for 37 yards, leaving Houston with negative-5 yards passing -- their fewest ever and the fewest allowed by the Raiders.

About the only thing working for the Texans (4-8) on offense was handing the ball to Ron Dayne, who had 83 of his 95 yards rushing in the 2nd half.
