When wide receiver Tandon Doss reached the end zone without being touched Sunday, it broke an unwanted streak for the Ravens' offense.

Doss' 15-yard touchdown catch during the third quarter of a 43-13 loss to the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium marks the Ravens' first road touchdown since wide receiver Jacoby Jones' score in the second quarter of a 24-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the second game of the season.

It ended a streak of 128 minutes and 32 seconds without a touchdown away from M&T Bank Stadium.

It was also Doss' first NFL touchdown after being drafted in the fourth round out of Indiana last year, not that he was celebrating.

"Not too much," Doss said. "We still got the loss."

Doss caught a screen pass from quarterback Joe Flacco, cutting inside to escape pursuit.

"It was a basic screen," said Doss, who has caught three passes for 60 yards. "Flacco led me through, and I found a seam. Hopefully, there's more to come."
