As the Vikings scored field goal after field goal, it seemed inevitable that the Texans eventually would score touchdowns.
They still could, but they haven’t yet.
With a first down inside the Minnesota one, the Texans failed to hit paydirt, ultimately losing 14 yards on a third-down sack and setting up a field goal.
The Vikings lead, 16-6. (That’s a score that will make most purple-clad people turn green.) And the boos birds have been flying in Houston, where the Texans could still squander the top seed in the AFC.
