The Houston Texans faced the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3 as the action was close, with the Texans coming out with the close victory, their second of the season.
For what didn’t seem to go right in the first half for the Houston Texans, the second half was much better for the away team. In the second half, the Texans scored 20 of their 27 points in their 27-20 win against the host Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.
This game had a little bit of everything for the Texans with wild plays, frustration in the first half and even some firsts for players on the roster. After everything was said and done, it was a win for the Texans, resulting in their overall record moving to 2-1 on the season.
Below are game highlights provided by the official Twitter account of the NFL.
What a play this was by Deshaun Watson to escape the pressure from the Chargers, but better yet, Jordan Akins was left all alone to race his way to the end zone for what was his second touchdown of the game and of his career. Akins finished with three receptions for 73 yards and two touchdowns.
This touchdown pass by Watson to Akins put the Texans in their lead, capping off a six-play, 73-yard drive. The touchdown reception by Akins was the first of his career. Watson ended the game 25-of-34 for 351 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. Watson also rushed for 18 yards.
This play by Chargers wide receiver was a standout play during the game. For the game, Allen totaled 13 receptions for 138 yards and two touchdowns in the loss against the Texans.
This was an excellent play by Watson in the second quarter for the first Texans touchdown of the game. It is also nice to see a veteran like Darren Fells score the touchdown as well. Fells totaled five receptions for 49 yards and the one TD.
Rivers to Allen is always a strong combo to stop any week of the NFL season. This touchdown shows just that as the Chargers scored the first touchdown of the game. Rivers finished the game 31-of-46 for 318 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.
Next for the Texans is a Week 4 game against the Carolina Panthers next Sunday.
