Forcing turnovers key to Houston's early success

HOUSTON (AP) The Houston Texans had the worst turnover margin in the NFL when they went 2-14 last season.

Two games into this year, and Houston is tied for second-best in the league in that category at plus-five. The Texans forced four turnovers in Sunday's 30-14 win at Oakland, using a couple of big plays by the secondary to improve to 2-0 after dropping their last 14 games in 2013.

"That's something that we ... drive on, even in practice," free safety Kendrick Lewis said. "It showed up in the game. Guys going after the ball, no matter if it's a running back breaking through, if it's a receiver catching the ball and turning up. We're stripping at the ball, trying to cause turnovers any way we can."
