Randall Cobb had his best game yet as a Houston Texan.
The ten-year veteran caught four-of-four passes for a team-high 95 yards receiving and scored his first touchdown as a Texan at Pittsburgh. But coming off a three-game losing streak, the ten-year veteran has his sights on a win.
"It honestly didn't mean much to me," Cobb said. "Not in a loss. I play this game to win. That's the most important thing to me. Stats come very secondary."
Cobb, signed as a free agent in March, was the first Texans wide receiver with a touchdown reception this season on Sunday when he caught a 28-yard pass from Deshaun Watson in the first quarter against the Steelers. He wasn't alone. Will Fuller also finished with a touchdown reception. In fact, Watson had five different players record a reception of at least 20 yards in the first half of a game for the first time in franchise history, connecting with Jordan Akins, Brandin Cooks, David Johnson, Kenny Stills as well as Cobb for deep passes.
"I think we have that ability here," Cobb said. "It's about continuing to mesh what we're all good at and use our strengths and be able to find ways to put us in the best position to win. We've got the guys. We've just got to go out and figure out how to make it happen."
With his Week 3 performance, Cobb joined Emmanuel Sanders as the only wide receivers to catch a touchdown pass in each of the last 10 seasons. He also became the ninth player in NFL history with at least 45 receiving touchdowns, one kickoff return touchdown and one punt return touchdown.
Cobb and the Texans will host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4. Sunday's kickoff is set for 12 noon on FOX and SportsRadio 610.
