Houston Texans: Randall Cobb catches 1st TD of season
The Houston Texans finally had a wide receiver make a touchdown reception in 2020.
It took until the third game, but the Houston Texans finally had a wide receiver make a touchdown reception in the 2020 season. The touchdown grab happened when quarterback Deshaun Watson found Randall Cobb for a 28-yard catch in the first quarter.
The play happened on third-and-7 on the Steelers’ 28-yard line. The reception was made by Cobb at around the 12-yard line, and Cobb did the rest, racing into the end zone past Pittsburgh defenders for six points. The ensuing PAT gave the Texans a 7-3 lead.
This was not only Cobb’s first touchdown of the season, and not only the first touchdown reception by any Houston Texans wide receiver in 2020, but it was his first touchdown reception as a member of the Houston Texans.
The Houston Texans added Cobb this offseason via free agency as he played last season with the Dallas Cowboys, and before that played for the Green Bay Packers from 2011-18. Cobb entered the Week 3 game against the Steelers with seven receptions for 82 yards, as he was targeted nine times in the first two game against the Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens.
Watson and Cobb are starting to get used what each other brings to the field each and every week. The longer this season goes for Watson, Cobb and the Houston Texans, the better this duo will be moving forward.
This is the 123rd game of Randall Cobb’s career where he now has 45 career touchdown receptions.
