Andy Lyons/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton finally got a win in Houston on Sunday after he led his team to a 22-13 win over the Texans.
Dalton lost his first three games in Houston, but won on his father Greg's 55th birthday with him in attendance.
"It's cool to get a win here," Dalton said. "(And) have it timed up where we were playing in Houston on his birthday. It's a special day."
A.J. Green finished with 12 receptions and 121 yards and Mohamed Sanu caught Dalton's touchdown pass to get the Bengals on the board in the first quarter.
Jeremy Hill's two-yard touchdown run in the third quarter gave Cincinnati a 16-3 lead and the defense would do the rest.
Houston quarterback Ryan Mallett finished with 189 yards and a pick in the loss. The Bengals defense held wide receiver Andre Johnson to 36 yards on three receptions.
"I didn't play well," Mallett said. "I couldn't hit the broad side of the barn from 5 yards away."
