Texans RB Dare Ogunbowale kicks clutch field goal

C.J. Stroud will grab the headlines — rightfully so — after his 470-yard, 5-TD passing performance on Sunday in the Houston Texans’ 39-37 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Another Houston player deserves major accolades for doing something no one could have expected him to do.

Houston kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn suffered a quad injury during the game, sending the Texans into desperation mode.

With the game tied 30-30 in the fourth quarter, they were faced with a 29-yard field-goal attempt. Running back Dare Ogunbowale stepped up, and stepped into the football.

The kick was true, and it gave Houston a 33-30 lead in a game that saw a frantic finish.

Ogunbowale attended Marquette University High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he was a four-sport athlete in football, soccer, basketball and track.

Coincidentally, Ogunbowale had twice been with Tampa Bay in his journeyman career.
