MIAMI, Sept. 18 (UPI) -- Matt Schaub connected on two touchdown passes and rookie Ben Tate ran for 103 yards Sunday in the Houston Texans' 23-13 win over Miami.

Schaub hit Owen Daniels on a 4-yard score in the second quarter for 13-3 lead and hooked up with Andre Johnson on a 23-yard scoring strike with 10 minutes left to ice the victory. Schaub finished 21-of-29 passing for 230 yards.

Tate -- subbing for an injured Arian Foster -- accumulated his 103 yards on 23 carries for the Texans (2-0). Foster ran for 33 yards on 10 carries before aggravating a hamstring injury and missing the second half.

Rookie Daniel Thomas carried the ball 18 times for 107 yards for Miami.
