  • The Texans player to see the most playing time during their team debut was Eric Murray, the safety signed away from the Cleveland Browns. He played in 67 (97%) of the defensive snaps, logging seven tackles.
  • Brandin Cooks was limited in his Texans debut, as he was a game-time decision. Cooks played 31 (53%) of the offensive snaps, catching two passes for 20 yards.
  • Duke Johnson left the game Thursday night with an ankle injury that could sideline him for multiple games. He played just 14 (24%) of snaps, accumulating 14 rushing yards on five carries.
  • The defensive side of the ball stayed on the field for 69 plays, 10 more than the offensive side, on Thursday night. Much of that number stems from the 16-play drive that spanned over nine minutes that the Chiefs built at the beginning of the second half.
