Texans-Redskins Update: Redskins Score On Fullback Dive, Watt Blocks Extra Point, Fitzpatrick Hits Hopkins Deep

Redskins 6, Texans 7

Alfred Morris has found his running legs, allowing the Redskins to break the deadlock. Morris ran hard through the Texans defense allowing fullback Darell Young to punch it in at the goal line.

J.J. Watt, who doesn't take kindly to getting scored on, blocked the subsequent extra point.

On the very next drive, the Texans opened up the playbook a bit. Ryan Fitzpatrick hit DeAndre Hopkins deep for a 76-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown and the lead.

Every point counts. The Texans have their first lead of the season by the slimmest of margins.
