Game Day Houston Texans

WATCH: Duke Johnson scores his first TD of the season for Texans

After losing David Johnson midway through the first quarter, the Houston Texans have received a boost from backup running back, Duke Johnson. During the first half, Duke had set a season-high in rushing attempt with seven and scored his first touchdown of the season by completing a one-yard rush.

Duke’s touchdown pushed the Texans ahead 20-13 with 1:44 left in the second quarter. It took six plays and a total of 98 yards for Houston to score their second touchdown of the game.

Duke and the Texans received a significant break from a pass interference call committed by Jacksonville’s CB C.J. Henderson on Will Fuller. The penalty awarded the Texans 50 yards in which Deshaun Watson would add a big 16-yard scramble prior to Duke’s touchdown.

The Jaguars would go on to make a 59-yard field goal attempt to cut into Houston’s lead 20-16 entering the halftime break.
