HOUSTON - This is the Mario Williams the Houston Texans have been waiting for.
Last year's top overall pick returned a fumble for a touchdown and had five tackles including two sacks to help the Texans to a win.
Matt Schaub had a successful, if a bit inconsistent debut in Houston, going 16-of-22 for 225 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
The Texans led 10-0 when Jamar Fletcher knocked the ball out of Kris Wilson's hands which Williams recovered. The 6-foot-7, 285-pound defensive end got up and rumbled 38 yards for the touchdown.
Linebacker DeMeco Ryans jumped on Williams to congratulate him, a far different celebration than last season.
