For the Texans, here is a spoiler of what they had to say:
"These two first-place teams looked prime to have an all-out slugfest, matching each others’ scores with touchdown passes in the air by the Houston Texans and a strong running game from an active Jamaal Charles (game time decision) and the Kansas City Chiefs offense."

Taking a look around the rest of the AFC South, here is how the rest of the division fared:
Titans at Lions:
"Madden 17 loves a good battle of the starting quarterbacks, and Matthew Stafford and Marcus Mariota did not disappoint. Stafford threw for 324 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions, while Mariota kept pace with 293 yards passing, two touchdowns and one interception. Mariota is still learning the league, and should get a bit better over time.Detroit knew that they’d need to get a big enough lead to hold off the Titans, as they went for a 2-point conversion on the final score to make sure a field goal would only tie things. Unfortunately, the Titans couldn’t get Succop in good field position quick enough, as the game came to a close with a Lions victory."
Jaguars at Chargers:
"It wasn’t on the passing game of Blake Bortles that kept the Jaguars ahead. He had a fairly unremarkable zero touchdowns and zero interceptions, although he did complete 76% of his passes for 240 yards. No, it was the one-man running crew of T.J. Yeldon himself, running the ball for 144 yards and three touchdowns on the day.Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers just couldn’t keep on pace, always one step away from taking the lead. Squandering two out of four scoring opportunities in the red zone ended up being their undoing, as they were just a touchdown away from tying things up and sending them to overtime."
Colts at Broncos:
"The Broncos were actually winning heading into the 4th quarter until a touchdown and field goal left things at 20-14.Paxton was maintaining a steady offensive drive, passing the ball for a huge gain and handing the ball off for short gains and first down conversions. Unfortunately, an interception after the final 2-minute warning sealed the fate of the Broncos, as the Colts with the Battle of the Horse Teams this time."
