The score: On first-and-10 from the Texans' 21-yard line, Carpenter lobbed a deep pass to the left for Benn. With Jacques Reeves in tight coverage, Benn made a sensational grab, seemingly prying the ball off Reeves' helmet with one arm, for the score.

The set-up: Carpenter started the drive off with two passes for 50 yards, one to wide receiver Preston Parker and one to tight end Ryan Purvis. Those plays were sandwiched around a five-yard neutral zone infraction penalty on DelJuan Robinson. Robinson, who also stuffed running back Clifton Smith for a two-yard loss on the drive.
