The Texans got a huge day out of Carlos Hyde as he set a career high and helped Houston take a commanding lead in the AFC South.

Hyde rumbled for the score there, his lone one of the day, but all day had nice runs. He had 46 yards in the first half helping the Texans a ton on their second scoring drive. He carried five times on the drive with carries of seven yards and two carries of six yards. Deshaun Watson would finish off that drive.

In the second half, Hyde was again helping the Texans in the red zone. He bounced a play outside that looked dead to get the Texans a first down. Watson would toss an interception but on the ensuing drive Hyde would have the above rush to finish it out and get the score.

Hyde has now rushed for over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career. He also has a career high in yards per attempt. Not bad for a player the Texans added via trade for a player they were going to cut.
