Two plays led to a Houston Texans TD in the first quarter of Week 13.
The Houston Texans trailed by seven points when this drive began in the first quarter, and Deshaun Watson did what he does best … create plays.
It is no secret that Keke Coutee is only playing this weekend due to Randall Cobb being injured, and there is also the suspension of Will Fuller that hasn’t helped matters as well for this Week 13 game.
In the past Coutee has had two stellar performances against the Colts back in 2018, having two 100-yard receiving games against the AFC South rival. On Sunday, Coutee added anther big-time yardage play, a 64-yard reception, against the Colts in the first quarter, which kept the drive alive for the Texans.
Houston Texans: Coutee with the big reception off Watson pass
What a play by both Watson and Coutee, and it is great to see Coutee make the big plays many of us believe he can make on a weekly basis if he’s given the proper amount of playing time in games. Coutee — at least in this instance — took full advantage of playing on the same team with one of the very best quarterbacks in the entire NFL.
As this season continues it will be exciting to see how much more Coutee takes advantage of the extended time on the field.
Then came this play (shown above) by Watson where he kept the football, raced around the defense of the Colts and scored a touchdown in the first quarter. This was a smart play call by Tim Kelly and the Houston Texans on first down, as it led to the touchdown.
Houston has shown at moments in this game, and all season long, that they are capable of being a strong team, but road blocks have happened, and a lot of adversity has been faced by the Houston Texans.
At least for these two plays on Sunday the Houston Texans reminded us of how exciting the offense can be with the duo of Watson-to-Coutee, which isn’t something many believed could happened before this Week 13 game began.
