It was bombs away for Houston Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor as he found Brandin Cooks for a 40-yard touchdown, leading to an 11-point lead for the team in the second quarter against the New York Jets.

The 40-yard pass from Taylor to Cooks in Week 12 completed a six-play, 67-yard drive with 10:36 left in the second quarter. This was also the second touchdown pass by Taylor in the game. Earlier in the same quarter Taylor had a 13-yard touchdown pass to Brevin Jordan with 14:18 on the clock.

Taylor’s touchdown passes in the second quarter put the Texans ahead by a 14-3 score.

Seeing Houston have success, even against the Jets, is nice to see because earlier in the year it looked like consecutive wins were just a dream, but today in Week 12 there is a chance the wins might actually happen.

The past two games have been the best football the Texans have played this season, so even though it might mess up the Texans getting a Top 2 or Top 3 pick for the 2022 NFL Draft, it does show the front office of Houston what players they have who can make a difference for future seasons.

If the Texans can hold onto their lead remains to be seen, but it will be fun to see if Houston can win in consecutive weeks, which at the start of this month it sure didn’t feel like there was any chance for it to happen.
