On 4th-and-1, Deshaun Watson went to a reliable red zone target: Darren Fells.
The Texans tight end caught his third touchdown of the season in the second quarter of Sunday's road contest at Tennessee. On the 13th play of the 82-yard drive, Watson hit Fells on the right side of the end zone, and Houston had its first points of the game. When Ka'imi Fairbairn's extra point sailed through the uprights, the Texans trailed the Titans, 14-7.
The possession burned 6:16 off the clock, and saw Houston face third down only twice. The Texans converted one of those third downs, and after failing to pound it into the end zone on 3rd-and-goal at the 1, Watson went to Fells for the touchdown.
Fells also caught a pass for an 18-yard gain, while Will Fuller, V logged a 17-yard reception. The trio of Watson, David Johnson and Duke Johnson combined to rush seven times for 33 yards on the drive.
It was the 20th touchdown catch of Fells' career, and he joined the Chiefs' Travis Kelce as the only tight end in the NFL with at least three touchdown receptions in each of the last four years.
