Taylor jumps over defender for a TD, ending Texans' scoring drought on the road

The drought is over.

After 17 consecutive quarters on the road without a touchdown, the Houston Texans finally found the end zone against the Tennessee Titans. After the first two offensive drives ended in field goals, QB Tyrod Taylor was the one to finally score for Houston. In pouring rain at Nissan Stadium, Taylor scrambled and leaped into the end zone for a seven-yard touchdown to cap off a seven-play, 76-yard scoring drive.

The Texans converted six first downs on the series, including a 13-yard catch by Chris Conley to start the drive. Taylor also connected with Brandin Cooks on a 10-yard throw. Ka'imi Fairbairn, who made two field goals from 43 and 24 yards, missed the extra point attempt as the Texans took a 12-0 lead with 7:43 left in the second quarter.

The next time you can see the Texans at NRG Stadium will be on November 28 as they host the New York Jets in Week 12. Kickoff is set for noon CT. Click here for tickets.
