On a Texans field goal drive Fuller had a 36 yard scamper to get into Falcons territory and got the team in position for the kick with a gain of eight yards on third and long.
Two of the next three drives would see Fuller get stuffed at the one yard line, nearly scoring both times. The Texans would put points on the board both times, once on the ground with Carlos Hyde and another through the air to Darren Fells.
The icing came as the Texans sought him out to close out the game. On third down just under the two-minute warning Fuller hauled in a 44-yard strike for a score galloping into the end zone.
Fuller would finish the day with a fantastic 14 catches fro 217 yards and three touchdowns. He tied the franchise record for receptions and touchdowns in a single game with his performance. It was the fifth highest single-game yard total in franchise history. It is the most yards in a game Fuller has had in either his college or NFL career. He had two games in college where he scored three touchdowns.
Fuller said these were the most yards he has had in one game since high school where his high total was 276 yards.
