Duke Johnson bulls in for TD, Texans lead 19-3 in 3rd

Duke Johnson took a handoff from a yard out and hammered it in for a third quarter touchdown against the Jaguars at Wembley Stadium.

The Texans running back blasted through a Jacksonville defender and into the end zone with 0:31 remaining in the third, giving the Texans a 19-3 lead. His score completed a Texans drive that took just five plays to cover 79 yards. The possession lasted 2:19.

On the drive, Deshaun Watson found DeAndre Hopkins for a completion of eight. Carlos Hyde jetted 48 yards up the right side on the next play, and pushed the Texans to the Jacksonville 23-yard line. A 1-yard run by Hyde was followed by a 21-yard completion to Hopkins, and the Texans had a 1st-and-Goal at the Jaguars 1-yard line.

Johnson took over from there, and it was his seventh carry of the day. He had 13 yards at that juncture.

It was his first rushing score of the year, and his first since the 2017 season.

Houston Texans Fans travel all the way to Wembley Stadium in London for the ninth game of the 2019 NFL season against the Jaguars.
