Game Notes
It looked like a Houston Texans blow out for the first 5 minutes. A blocked punt for a TD and a muffed punt return rolled the Texans up 24-0 before the Chiefs knew what hit them! The Texans imploded from there. The defense could not spot anything the Chiefs threw at them. The offense was all out of rhythm and the Chiefs plowed through them!

Carlos Hyde (23)
RB 
Not much of a run game in this one
DeAndre Hopkins (10)
WR 
A- 
the lead receiver on the day
Deshaun Watson (4)
QB 
C+ 
Watson was saling too many balls and making it tough on his WRs. He did a good job keeping plays alive, but then would make a bad throw.
Duke Johnson Jr. (25)
RB 
11 yards on his first carry and unheard from since!
Ka'imi Fairbairn (7)
The FG miss before the half was crushing - they needed something good to happen before halftime.
Will Fuller V (15)
WR 
They so could have used a big play from him today!

Play of the Game
The miss on the fake field goal really opened the door for the Chiefs. They lost the ball, momentum, and ultimately the lead.

Comments on Coaching
The fake kick was probably not needed at the time. It really helped swing the momentum.
