Rams hand mistake-prone Texans fourth loss

HOUSTON -- Sam Bradford threw three touchdown passes. St. Louis added a score on defense and a score on special teams. And the Rams stunned the mistake-prone Houston Texans with a 38-13 win on Sunday.

The Rams (3-3) were up 24-6 early in the third quarter before rookie Daren Bates returned Keshawn Martin's fumble on a kickoff return for a touchdown.

Alec Ogletree pushed the lead to 38-6 when he intercepted a T.J. Yates pass and took it back 98 yards for a touchdown. Yates was in after Matt Schaub sustained an apparent right ankle injury.

Schaub didn't toss a turnover after having nine interceptions already this year, including a pick six in a league-record four straight games.

But several other Texans had key gaffes as preseason Super Bowl hopeful Houston (2-4) lost its fourth straight game.
