Receiver Will Fuller scored three touchdowns, and Deshaun Watson had a perfect passer rating as the Texans ran by the Falcons 53-32.

Tight end Darren Fells had two second-half touchdowns on his only two catches as the Texans scored 37 second-half points after trailing 17-16 at halftime. Fells’ scores covered 8 and 12 yards.

Watson completed 28 of 33 passes for 426 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions.

Fuller had a career-high 217 yards on 14 catches to go with his career-best three scores.

The Texans ended up with 592 yards, with 365 coming in the second half. They scored on all five second-half possessions, getting four touchdowns and a field goal.

For good measure, Tashaun Gipson Sr. returned a Matt Ryan interception 79 yards for a touchdown with 24 seconds remaining.

Ryan finished 32-of-46 for 330 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.

  1. Quinn fired the D.C. Manuel after a pretty decent season for the Falcon defense last year and took on the defensive duties himself. The defense has been sieve this year so it’s all on him. They come out flat every game and after every halftime, no urgency, no pass rush, no blocking from the offensive line. DQ skirted by last year due to a rash of injuries on the defensive side of the ball and a late season rally to win a few games. The injury excuse will not stay the execution of DQ this year. Look at the Saints and Panthers, injuries to their starting QB’s yet they still find ways to win ballgames. The DQ experiment is officially over.
