The Redskins came out on a mission. Starting on their 12 yard line, they marched across the field getting down to the Texans 7 yard line. RGIII fumbled a hand off and J. J. Watt scooped it up, preventing the Redskins from shifting the game to their advantage. It was an over all good series up to that point up to that point for Washington and could have really changed the course of this game. On their next possession the Redskins were again trying to make something happen, starting on their 12 yard line they got all the way to their 43 before Griffen hit Paul for a 48 yard gain. The secondary was burned on that play, the Redskins were again looking to make the game close. However, D.J. Swearing stripped the ball and Kendrick Lewis recovered. Scoring drive once again aborted.

Fitzpatrick lead a more successful offense, getting first downs and showing signs of things to come, but the offense was unable to get anything really going on their first drive of the quarter, but finished on a high note as they moved the ball 47 yards up the field going into the 4th quarter.
