Houston Survives in Overtime Against Tennessee Thanks to DeAndre Hopkins


The Houston Texans are the early season possessors of magical abilities in close games. For the second week in a row, the Texans rally late in the fourth quarter. This time, it was a drive and a two point conversion with less than 2 minutes remaining to tie it. Randy Bullock then missed his third long field goal of the game, which banged off the upright, with a chance to get the outright win at the end of regulation.

That just set it up for DeAndre Hopkins, the rookie wide receiver from Clemson, to take over. On third down, he made a great catch down the sideline, saving Houston from sweating through another Bullock field goal attempt. Then, on third and goal, he caught the game winner.

The Tennessee Titans were a game young squad again, a week after winning at Pittsburgh, going toe to toe with Houston for over sixty minutes. This time it was not to be, though I think it’s fair to say Tennessee will be a pain in the butt for a few teams this year.
