 Houston coach Gary Kubiak would’ve told anyone who asked that the Texans were going to be fine with rookie T.J. Yates playing quarterback.

He was right.

Yates threw a touchdown pass in his first NFL start, Arian Foster rushed for 111 yards and Houston overcame another injury to Andre Johnson to beat Atlanta 17-10 on Sunday.

The Texans (9-3) have won a franchise-record six straight games, a remarkable feat considering they’re down to their third-string quarterback and have played many of their games without their star receiver.
