BALTIMORE, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Daryl Smith returned an interception for a touchdown and Tandon Doss scored on a punt return Sunday, rallying the Baltimore Ravens over Houston 30-9.

The Ravens were behind 6-3 in the second quarter when Smith picked off Houston's Matt Schaub and rambled 37 yards for a score, igniting a run of 17 unanswered Baltimore points.

Doss' 82-yard punt return capped the stretch as the Ravens (2-1) held Houston to just 102 yards of total offense in the second half.

Joe Flacco completed 16-of-24 passes for 171 yards and Justin Tucker was true on three field goals in the win.

Schaub ended up completing 25-of-35 passes en route to 194 yards and an interception for the Texans (2-1), who lost wide receiver Andre Johnson to a leg injury in the defeat.
