The Texans, against all the odds, are still in this game.
Deshaun Watson has made play after play against a (usually) disciplined Patriots defense, while the Texans defense has contributed several big plays of their own. This is one of the first “complete” games that Houston has played in a long time. Even though some critical mistakes have been made on both sides of the ball, they are going toe to toe with the reigning Champs and giving them all they can handle in Foxborough of all places.
If the closeness of this game doesn’t speak to how improved this team is looking under Watson, then I don’t know what does. Consider this your fourth quarter open thread through the end of the game.
