The Houston Texans’ 2015 season ended like it started: With home losses to the Chiefs. The second game of 2016 could drop the Texans to 0-3 at home against the Chiefs.
The Texans have struck first, with a 27-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Brock Osweiler to receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters was called for pass interference; obviously, it was declined.
A promising opening drive ended with an end-zone interception of Osweiler by Peters. The interception came three plays after rookie receiver Will Fuller got behind Peters for a long catch that put the ball inside the five. Fuller bobbled the ball before securing it.
It was the second straight game that featured a first-drive interception by Osweiler. But the Texans have emerged with the win in a game that starts a potentially eventful week for a Houston team that would like to find a way to show that it can beat the Chiefs and, on Thursday night, the Patriots.
