Will Fuller's 18-yard touchdown catch capped off a crucial scoring drive in the fourth quarter of the Texans 23-14 win over Chicago.

The nine-play, 64-yard drive began late in the third quarter on Houston's 36-yard line. The Texans successfully converted on three third-down situations. Brock Osweiler's 27-yard pass to Fuller on third-and-4 gave the Texans a big first down. Three plays later, Osweiler's keeper would convert a third-and-1 to extend the drive. Osweiler's deep pass to Fuller on the ensuing first-and-10 would be incomplete, but two plays later, the two would reconnect. On third-and-7 from the Chicago 18-yard line, Osweiler threw a short pass to Fuller who scrambled 18 yards for his first career NFL score.

Osweiler said he checked out of a play when he saw what the Bears defense was showing him.

"I recognized it," Osweiler said. "The play clock was running out. Fortunately, we were able to get the check in there. Will and the offensive line and everybody else who was blocking on that play did a heck of a job. My job was pretty easy. It was just getting us in the right play, flipping it out there about six or seven yards. Those other ten guys really did work the work on that play."

With 12:44 left in the fourth quarter, the Texans took a 20-14 lead following the extra point and did not trail for the rest of the game.
