Whatever changes have been made by the Houston Texans offense from last week to this Sunday in Week 5 it is working. The playbook has been opened a little more with a big-time touchdown pass by Davis Mills to Chris Moore in the second quarter, and the Texans seem to be on the same page.

The third-and-2 play in the second quarter saw Mills scramble, and find Moore downfield near the sideline, and he did the rest by racing away from the Patriots‘ defense for six points and the touchdown with 12:56 left in the second quarter.

This was Mills’ second touchdown pass of the game, where the first score was a 11-yard pass to Antony Auclair for his first career NFL touchdown catch.

As for the touchdown reception by Moore, the wide receiver scored his first TD of the season with the catch below provided by @NFL Twitter:

Earlier this week the Houston Texans released wide receiver Anthony Miller after four games, and veteran wide receiver Danny Amendola was listed on the inactive list for Week 5.

Seeing players like tight end Auclair and wide receiver Moore have success is what will make this Houston Texans team worth watching in ’21 as this season continues.

The offense of the Houston Texans is playing better than they did a week ago when facing the Bills, but this game is far from over as the Patriots are better than they’ve played so far in this game. That said, the Texans are playing up to better abilities than they’ve shown at times this season.

Speaking of better play, here is a great defensive play by the Houston Texans against the Patriots, causing New England a touchdown:


With the Texans having their best game in the past few weeks, it is going to be interesting to see what happens for the rest of this game, as Houston has been holding a lead in the first half.

Having the lead is a great step in improving the overall play of the Houston Texans and that was what was needed going into Week 5.
