Houston Texans vs. Buffalo Bills Recap
September 28, 2014
An uneventful first quarter lead to a closely contested game on a day where JJ Watt really shined for the Texans. Ryan Fitzpatrick had a fairly decent game, throwing for 268 yards and a touchdown with 2 interceptions as well. The rushing front for the Texans was nearly nonexistent, Fitzpatrick also lead this category with only 14 yards rushing, a meager return for a team that has been known for great rushers in the past. For the Bills, EJ Manuel was 21-44 for 225 and two TD's. However, he also threw two interceptions which would prove vitally important in the contest. JJ Watt came up big once again, when he picked off Manuel in the 3rd quarter and returned it for an 80 yard touchdown to give Houston an all important lead with momentum to boot. Watt once again provided that all important spark that the Texans offense was unable to give.
