DENVER, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Matt Schaub connected on four touchdown passes, tossing for 290 yards Sunday in the Houston Texans' 31-25 victory over Denver.

Schaub completed 17-of-30 passes with an interception as the Texans (3-0) began a season with three straight wins for the first time in franchise history.

Arian Foster carried the ball 25 times for 105 yards and also hauled down a 3-yard touchdown catch for Houston.

Peyton Manning led the Broncos (1-2) on a late comeback try, hurling a pair of fourth-quarter scores, but it wasn't enough and Denver lost its second straight.

Manning finished 27-of-52 for 325 yards and Eric Decker made seven grabs for 123 yards.
