Bills vs. Texans: Owen Daniels Gives Houston 7-0 Lead

For about ten minutes, the Buffalo Bills' defense didn't look an awful lot like the Buffalo Bills' defense. Then the Houston Texans finally got going on offense, and the Bills now trail 7-0 at Reliant Stadium.

Owen Daniels hauled in a 39-yard touchdown pass from Matt Schaub for the first score of the game. The play was a beautifully executed play-action pass wherein Daniels ran a wheel route up the right sideline. Buffalo's defenders lost track of the tight end, who could not have been more wide open on the play.

Daniels' touchdown was set up by an 18-yard completion to Kevin Walter on the same play call; Schaub play faked, rolled to his left and threw back across the field to the right on both plays. Arian Foster also had a 14-yard run on the scoring drive for Houston.

We've officially hit the end of the first quarter, with the Bills trying to get going offensively trailing 7-0.
