Davis Mills and OJ Howard connect for their second TD today! #WeAreTexans
— NFL (@NFL) September 11, 2022
The Houston Texans’ passing offense has come alive.
On a second-and-5 from the Colts’ 22-yard line, quarterback Davis Mills threw a touchdown pass to newly signed tight end O.J. Howard. The touchdown and extra point put the Texans ahead 20-3 over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1 at NRG Stadium.
The Texans gave Howard a second chance after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers released the former Alabama product. The Bucs sought to finalize their 53-man roster, and Howard got away.
The addition of Howard has given the Texans another red zone threat for Mills to work with. Through three quarters of the first game of the season, it appears to be a great combination.
