Carlos Hyde with a huge day on the ground to help the Texans to victory.

Texans player of the game: Hyde rules on ground

Carlos Hyde's day started rough but there was only one way to go after he fumbled on his first touch of the day.

Everything got going for Hyde after that. On the next drive Hyde would carry the ball for five, four, and 11 yards leading to a field goal. The following drive saw him rip off nine, 11, four, and seven yard rushes as well.

He'd follow that up with a 14 yard rush in the middle of a drive he would cap off with a two yard score.

Hyde would continue to be a load for the Chiefs defense to stop throughout the day. Houston would use the threat of a Hyde run in run-pass option plays to keep the Kansas City defense on their heels.

Hyde would finish the day with 116 yards on 26 carries and one score. It was the first time sine week two of 2017 for him to go over 100 yards rushing. Hyde has been a great find for the Texans this season as their premier running back.
