Houston Texans 19, Dallas Cowboys 16 The Texans’ defense played great all night, and the secondary should get a lot of the credit.
They combined for two tackles for loss and pressured Cowboys’ Dak Prescott throughout the night, racking up a combined 1.5 sacks.
Hopkins was clearly the best player on the field, catching nine passes for 151 yards and also a drawing a defensive pass interference.
He ended up going 18-of-29 for 208 yards, but a less mobile quarterback may have had a tough time keeping his team in the game.
Elliot finished with 54 yards on 20 carries while also contributing in the passing game, catching seven passes for 30 yards.
With Sean Lee out of the game, Jaylon Smith and rookie Leighton Vander Esch were active in the run game, coming downhill and recording a good number of tackles for a short distance.
While Bryon Jones was unable to contain Hopkins, he managed to force Hopkins to make some very tough contested catches with Jones’ hand in between Hopkins and the ball.
Keys to the Game Houston: The highlight will be the Hopkins’ catch and run, but he torched the Cowboys’ defense all day long, making play after play to extend drives.
Dallas: Prescott did all he could to keep the Cowboys in the game, but in the end, the Texans combination of Watt and Clowney combined with their secondary proved too much.
