Texans win 27-20.

Texans: 

  • Deshaun Watson: 25/34, 351 yards, 3 TDs + 7 carries, 18 yards
  • Carlos Hyde: 10 carries, 19 yards, 1 TD
  • Duke Johnson: 2 carries, 2 yards + 3 targets, 2 receptions, 22 yards
  • DeAndre Hopkins: 7 targets, 6 receptions, 67 yards
  • Will Fuller: 7 targets, 5 receptions, 51 yards
  • Kenny Stills: 6 targets, 4 receptions, 89 yards
  • Jordan Akins: 5 targets, 3 receptions, 73 yards, 2 TDs
  • Darren Fells: 6 targets, 5 receptions, 49 yards, 1 TD

Hopkins has been the focus of defensives and rightly so. The Texans d-line and Houston tight ends were the stars of the show. The Texans had 5 sacks. Kenny Stills feels like he is stealing targets from Fuller, but doing well with them. Deshaun Watson is playing great this season. Texans play the Panthers this week.

Chargers:

  • Philip Rivers: 31/46, 318 yards, 2 TDs + 2 carries, 9 yards
  • Austin Ekeler: 9 carries, 36 yards + 7 targets, 7 receptions, 45 yards
  • Justin Jackson: 5 carries, 26 yards + 4 targets, 4 receptions, 4 yards
  • Keenan Allen: 17 targets, 13 receptions, 183 yards, 2 TDs + 1 carry, 3 yards
  • Mike Williams: 7 targets, 3 receptions, 45 yards
  • Dontrelle Inman: 3 targets, 1 reception, 23 yards
  • Travis Benjamin: 5 targets, 2 receptions, 5 yards
  • Lance Kendricks: 2 targets, 1 reception, 13 yards

Keenan Allen is averaging 14 targets a game and I think he has been a close-second to Julio Jones as the best wide out in the league. Ekeler and Jackson have looked great, but it appears Melvin Gordon is coming back next week. The Chargers just seem to be hurting themselves too much. Luckily they get the Dolphins this week.
