Right Combination: The Lone TD drive

Right Combination: A one-play TD drive
The drive was one play and lasted just seven seconds, but it resulted in the lone touchdown of the game in the Texans 19-12 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. 
"DeAndre did a heck of a job," Brock Osweiler said. "I think he got walled out of bounds. He kept fighting. He kept playing the play. He got back in bounds, made a heck of a catch and scored a touchdown."
Houston's opening drive ended in a Chiefs interception at the goal line, but the Texans quickly regained possession. Following J.J. Watt's fumble recovery on a bad snap to quarterback Alex Smith, the Texans took advantage of the turnover. Osweiler threw a deep pass to the right side of the endzone for a 27-yard score to DeAndre Hopkins.
"It was great defense," Hopkins said. "He had outside leverage. I just stuck with the route and trusted Brock (Osweiler) just to put the ball in there and let me make a play."
The Texans took an early 7-0 lead with 8:01 remaining in the first quarter.
