The Texans lone touchdown drive against the Cincinnati Bengals took just four plays.Tom Savage
kicked off the 75-yard, fourth-quarter drive with three consecutive first downs. After Will Fuller
V’s 19-yard catch, Savage scrambled for an 11-yard gain to give Houston possession at the Cincinnati 45-yard line.
“I just saw a little opening there,” Savage said. “Felt like it took 18 seconds to get that 11 yards and I was hoping I didn’t break my leg on the way.”
Savage then connected with DeAndre Hopkins
on a 21-yard catch move the Texans to the Cincinnati 24-yard line. On the next play, Blue’s 24-yard touchdown run regained the lead for Houston.
“He (Blue) made a nice cut,” head coach Bill O’Brien said. “We collected the blitz pretty well on the blocking and he was able to break free into the endzone.”
Following a blocked extra point attempt, the Texans took a 12-10 lead with 8:41 remaining in the game.Twitter.com/DeepSlant
