TEXANS PLAYER OF THE GAME

Another week and another huge day for the Texans first draft pick in the 2018 draft. Justin Reid pulled down his third interception to stymie a Washington drive in the first half and turn momentum the Texans way before halftime. The Texans would hold on for the 23-21 win. 

Reid intercepted an Alex Smith pass in the end zone as Smith was looking for tight end Jordan Reed. The rookie safety would step into the passing lane and take off to the races to add more insult to Reid on Reed crime. Not a single player on Washington came close to catching the former Stanford product as he rumbled the length of the field for a 101-yard touchdown. 

It ended a streak of 44 consecutive appearances in the red zone where the Texans allowed points. 

Reid was around the ball a lot but ended up with just a handful of tackles. The rookie continues to impress and is at the very least putting himself in the conversation for defensive rookie of the year

One thing that needs to be talked about more is the Texans' collection of talent on offense.

Everyone knows what Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins can do, but getting Will Fuller and Keke Coutee back and healthy this year will be huge for the offense.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank talks about his expectations for Houston's offense, and why several Texans players will be highly coveted in fantasy football leagues.
