MIAMI (AP) -- Andre Johnson slipped behind the Miami Dolphins' secondary, then uncharacteristically dropped a deep pass.
So he worked himself open again, and this time held on for a 23-yard score that helped seal the Houston Texans' victory over Miami on Sunday, 23-13.
Miami's sieve-like pass defense was no match for Johnson and Matt Schaub, who threw for 230 yards and had a quarterback rating of 118.5. Johnson made seven catches for 93 yards.
The Dolphins committed two turnovers, had a 22-yard field-goal attempt blocked and missed a 34-yarder. Daniel Thomas rushed for 107 yards in his NFL debut, but Chad Henne went 12 for 30 and was especially erratic in the red zone.
The Texans improved to 2-0 for the second year in a row.
Miami is 0-2 for the fifth time in the past six years. The Dolphins lost for the 11th time in their past 12 home games.
