What once seemed like an inevitable task took no more than 35 seconds for the Houston Texans to record their first touchdown during the opening drive.
Standing on their own 43-yard line, Deshaun Watson completed a 57-yard touchdown pass to Brandin Cooks for the Texans’ first score of the game. Houston’s touchdown helped the Texans tied the game (7-7) after allowing the Jackson Jaguars to score on their opening drive.
With the touchdown, Cooks is now the ninth player in NFL history with a 50+ yard reception in each of his first seven seasons. Running back David Johnson helped set up Houston’s scoring drive after he ran for 18 yards on his first carry.
