FS. <p>Kurtis Drummond, the undrafted safety that should have been drafted came away with three tackles and a pick in his first NFL action. Drummond made a nice diving catch on an overthrown ball, showcasing his ball skills and instincts as a center-fielding free safety.</p> <p>The knock on him was his inability to tackle, but he made a great open field tackle at one point when Thompsn had to dump the ball off to avoid pressure. Drummond was disciplined and stayed in his lanes.</p> <p>The Texans most likely found a gem in the former Michigan State Spartan who could be the long term answer of the free safety position in Houston.</p>. Game Stats. 3 tackles, 1 interception. KURTIS DRUMMOND
