HOUSTON (AP) - Brian Hoyer threw for 205 yards and two touchdowns and Houston's defense stifled Drew Brees to help the Texans to a 24-6 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
    
The Texans (6-5) have won four games in a row for the first time since winning six straight in 2012.
    
New Orleans (4-7) dropped its third straight on a day when the team didn't score a touchdown for the first time since 2005, and Brees' streak of games with a touchdown pass was snapped at 45.
    
Hoyer went 7 for 7 on the opening drive, capped by a 10-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Griffin, to make it 7-0 and give Houston a score on the opening possession for the first time this season.
    
The last time the Saints didn't score a touchdown was Dec. 24, 2005 against Detroit and Brees' last game without a touchdown pass came on Nov. 29, 2012 against Atlanta.
