For the second straight week, the Houston Texans pulled off another come from behind victory. With the game about to expire, the Texans had a chance to seal a victory with a 46 yard field goal but Ryan Bullock missed and the game went into overtime.
Houston had the first possession in overtime and that was all that was needed to lock up the victory. Receiver DeAndre Hopkins scored the game winning touchdown, making a terrific catch on a three yard pass from Matt Shaub. Hopkins had a magnificent game, hauling in 7 catches for 117 yards and the game winning score. Hopkins was one of the bright sports in this game. After struggling last week, he shook off the rookie jitters and was a big factor in the offense this week.
Not everything went smoothly for the Texans though. Ryan Bullock missed a total of three field goals. He missed two from 50 yards and one from 46 yards, which would have been the game winning field goal. With the Texans letting their opponents stay close in games, they cannot afford to have missed opportunities. Bullock needs to improve his accuracy of the Texans might end up looking for a replacement.
The Texans are in great shape in the AFC South. They remain the only unbeaten team in the division. The next few weeks, however, are going to be tough games for Hoston.
