The Houston Texans fell 23:16 of their preseason closing at NRG Stadium on Saturday night time in opposition to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In the third quarter, quarterback Kyle Trask came into play for the Bucs and fumbled. Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill bounced back on the Tampa Bay 11-yard line. Mills threw his first preseason touchdown pass in the next game, an 11-yard score for Collins. The Texans went for two and were successful after Mills hit a pass to Keke Coutee. Houston was back in the third quarter with 8:44 minutes 16:10.
The Buccaneers responded with a score of their own. Trask threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to give Tampa Bay 23-10 the lead.
At the beginning of the fourth quarter, Walker’s Stripsack was recovered from Vincent Taylor on Trask. Mills converted the takeaway into six points after a touchdown pass to Veazy ended a 39 yard drive in five games. The two-point conversion, another pass to Veazy, wasn’t good. The defeat left Houston with a 2-1 preseason record.
The Texans were 2 out of 4 from the red zone. For every visit to the red zone, TDECU has pledged to donate $ 300 to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Houston, which totaled $ 1,200 this week.
