C.J. Stroud, welcome to the NFL!
After not throwing for a touchdown in the Houston Texans’ loss last week against the Baltimore Ravens, Stroud found the end zone late in the first quarter against the Indianapolis Colts when he threw an 8-yard pass to receiver Nico Collins.
Here’s a look at the play:
The touchdown capped off a 13-play drive that saw the Texans go 68 yards. Stroud converted four first downs on the drive, and also got some help from running back Dare Ogunbowale, who converted a 4th-and-1 with his legs at the Colts’ 14-yard line.
The Texans surrendered a pair of rushing touchdowns early to Colts rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson, so they will have to find a way to stop him in order to get back in the game.
The Texans trail the Colts 14-7 midway through the first quarter. The game can be watched on FOX.
