The Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals came together for Thursday Night Football in what proved to be a low scoring affair.
The Texans condemned the Bengals to their first loss of the season with only one touchdown scored in a 10-6 win.
Great play from Hopkins
After going the entire first half without a catch, Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was the man who made the scoring play and it was one to be remembered.

Coming in the fourth quarter, backup quarterback T.J. Yates connected with Hopkins on a 22 yard play which gave Houston their first lead of the night.
It was all about Hopkins however who brought the ball in with a terrific one handed grab which reminiscent of one he made in a game against the New York giants.
A catch worthy of winning any game...
In terms of actual offense though, the game was severely lacking as both offensive units were good at slowing each other down.
No-one on the offensive side of the ball really made an impact on the game until Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer got hurt and was forced to leave the game.
Yates came in and shortly after threw the only touchdown pass to Hopkins leaving fans to wonder if any touchdowns would have been scored if Hoyer had of stayed?
For the Bengals, it was a very dismal performance in front of a home crowd who are not only used to seeing their team win, but win well so they will need a big performance in their next game to compensate for the loss.
