No one thought the Texans would stay with the Eagles for the long Thursday night. The Texans are 1-5-1 and in no rush. The Eagles are the only undefeated 7-0 team in the NFL.
But Houston hangs with Philadelphia.
After an Eagles kicker, the teams tied 14–14 at halftime. Jake Elliott missed a 54-yard field goal in the last game of the half.
Protector of the Texans Davis Mills scored two touchdowns, second on Chris Moore 13 yards with 37 seconds left in the second quarter. On the field, it was ruled unfinished, but a replay overturned it to a touchdown.
Moore caught the ball and “survived on the ground” when the ball came out late as he got up to celebrate.
Mills hit a 2-yard touchdown in a rookie tight end Teagan Quitoriano on the opening disk. It was the first catch of Quitoriano’s career, having just been activated from an injured reserve.
Mills 8 out of 9 for 90 yards, and Dameon Pierce has 88 yards on 13 carries.
Hurts lost the fumble, the first losing fumble for the Eagles this season.
The Eagles have 247 yards to the Texans’ 182.
