The Texans defense came up big, and the offense responded.
On Sunday in Jacksonville, the Texans defense got a third quarter interception from Vernon Hargreaves, III. Three plays later, Deshaun Watson found Will Fuller, V for a deep strike score, and the Texans led, 27-19 with 6:05 left in the third quarter.
Hargreaves got his first pick of the 2020 campaign when he snared a Jake Luton pass intended James O'Shaughnessy at the Texans 19-yard line. Initially, he returned it 78 yards to the Jaguars' 3-yard line, but after an official review, Hargreaves was downed at the 19.
From there, Duke Johnson gained a yard on the ground. Watson scrambled for three on the next play. Then, Watson found Fuller on the right side, who made a move and turned on the jets for a 77 yard touchdown catch. It was the sixth straight game in which Fuller caught a touchdown, and he's the first player in franchise history to accomplish that feat. He's the only player in the NFL to do so in the last two seasons.
It was Fuller's third grab of the afternoon, and it brought his receiving yards total to 90 on the day.
For Watson, he was 15-of-23 for 258 yards at that point, with two touchdown passes and zero interceptions.
It also meant Watson went six straight contests with multiple touchdown passes, which was also the longest streak in team history. Plus, in each of the season's eight games, Watson had thrown for at least 250 yards and a touchdown pass. He's only the eight quarterback in NFL history to do so.
