Thursday Night Football: The Texans are tied 14-14 with the Eagles at halftime
No one thought the Texans would stick with the Eagles for long on Thursday night. The Texans are 1-5-1 and going nowhere fast. The Eagles are the only undefeated NFL team at 7-0.
But Houston hangs out with Philly.
The teams were tied 14-14 at halftime after a kick by the Eagles Jake Elliott missed a 54-yard field goal on the last play of the half.
Texans quarterback Davis Mills threw two touchdown passes, the second for Chris Moore for 13 yards with 37 seconds left in the second quarter. It was ruled incomplete on the field, but the replay overturned a touchdown.
Moore caught the ball and “survived the ground” and the ball came out late as he rose to celebrate.
Mills threw a 2-yard touchdown to the rookie tight end Teagan Quitoriano on opening drive. It was the first career catch for Quitorian, who had just been activated from injured reserve.
Mills is 8-of-9 for 90 yards, and Dameon Pierce has 88 yards on 13 carries.
Hurts lost the fumble, the first lost fumble for the Eagles this season.
The Eagles have 247 yards and the Texans 182 yards.
