The first Houston Texans touchdown in Week 2 was scored by Phillip Lindsay against the Browns.

After the special teams miscue all but gave the Cleveland Browns a touchdown in the first quarter, the Houston Texans offense responded with a score of their own. The touchdown came off a drive that went for 84 yards and eight plays.

One of the big plays of the drive was a 32-yard pass by Tyrod Taylor to rookie wide receiver Nico Collins all the way to the Texans’ 48-yard line. The drive also had a 12-yard completion from Taylor to Brandin Cooks and a 13-yard completion from Taylor to Chris Conley.

The drive came to a successful close with Taylor finding Lindsay for a 22-yard touchdown reception for the first quarter touchdown with 5:27 left on the clock. The touchdown and ensuing PAT by Joey Syle.

Here is the highlight of the touchdown by Lindsay from NFL Twitter:

This was a huge touchdown catch by Lindsay, and it is also his second touchdown of the season as last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars Lindsay had a touchdown, his first with the Houston franchise.

This drive by the Texans was very important for them. They are playing with a chip on their shoulder because of all of the offseason negativity that went their way due to various reasons. Against the Browns in Week 2, the Texans have come to Ohio to show none of the outside noise has bothered them, and the Texans don’t seem to be listening.
