Texans cut gap to 17-10 late in third

Posted Sep 2, 2010

The Texans trimmed the Bucs' lead to 17-10 with 0:02 left in the third quarter. Here's how it happened:

The drive: 17 plays, 73 yards, 7:38. Ended with a 21-yard field goal by Neil Rackers.

The score: Plain and simple. Jon Weeks snap, Matt Turk hold, Rackers kick. Good.

The set-up: Quarterback John David Booty was 6-of-11 for 51 yards on the drive, which started at the Texans' 24-yard line. Booty moved the chains on fourth-and-three from the Bucs' 40-yard line with a six-yard pass over the middle to tight end James Casey. He then converted on third-and-five from the 29 with a six-yard pass to wide receiver Bobby Williams. Running back Chris Henry picked up six yards for a first down on third-and-three from the Houston 16. Booty looked for Casey on third-and-goal from the three, but his pass to the left sailed incomplete.

The big play: Booty to Casey for 18 yards on the third play of the drive. Casey has eight catches for 81 yards, which are both the highest marks of the 2010 preseason for the Texans. (UPDATE: 9:20 p.m.: Casey's eight catches are a new Texans preseason record).
