CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Matt Schaub led one scoring drive and threw an interception in his first action since breaking right foot last season, and the Houston Texans beat the Carolina Panthers 26-13 on Saturday night in the preseason opener for both teams.
Schaub completed three passes for 52 yards on Houston's opening drive, including a 22-yard strike on third down the seam to Owen Daniels to set up a field goal.
Houston's next two possessions ended in turnovers when Arian Foster fumbled and Schaub's pass was intercepted by linebacker Jason Phillips on a bad throw over the middle.
Playing without his top weapon Andre Johnson, Schaub finished 3 of 6 for 52 yards for Houston.
Cam Newton's night also was short and not all that productive for Carolina.
