Texans beat Redskins 23-21 to extend winning streak

Texans beat Redskins 23-21 to extend winning streak

Smith's contract runs through 2022 in Washington.

"So I saw the daylight and I had to hit it. Regardless, we try to play complementary football, but when the offense needs the defense to help us out, they do that and vice-versa".

While Watson was 16 of 24 for 208 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions, Smith broke his right tibia and fibula on a sack by Kareem Jackson midway through the third quarter and will require surgery.

In his second game with the Texans, Demaryius Thomas was a non-factor.

Smith's leg injury happens exactly 33 years after the infamous - and eerily similar - play that ended Redskins legend Joe Theismann's career.

"He's a great guy and a hard worker and one of the key leaders on this football team".

Washington, which leads the NFC East with a 6-4 record, will have a few options to turn to in trying to replace Smith, who had accumulated 2,180 passing yards and 10 touchdowns for the Redskins this year, but the pool of replacements seems to be a band of ABK - Anybody But Kaepernick.

The Cowboys breathed life into their playoff chase with a 22-19 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Leonard Fournette ran for 95 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries but Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger overcame a slow start to throw for 314 yards and two touchdowns before diving in for the game-winner himself with five seconds left.

On a day when close finishes abounded, the New Orleans Saints pummeled the Philadelphia Eagles 48-7 - inflicting the heaviest defeat ever meted out to a defending Super Bowl champion.

The Houston Texans resiliency and strong defensive performance allowed the team to tie their seven-game win streak back in 2011.

McCoy tried to lead the Redskins to the go-ahead points, but their last drive stalled, and Dustin Hopkins tried a 63-yard field goal that fell well short.
