The Texans lone touchdown drive against the Cincinnati Bengals took just four plays.

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.
