Justin Reid intercepted the ball in the end zone
Justin Reid intercepted the ball in the end zone 
LANDOVER Jeff Allen Color Rush Jersey , Md. (AP) and saw nothing but green grass in front of him.I saw the daylight and I have to hit it, Reid said. I wasnt going to let anyone stop me.No ones stopping the Houston Texans right now.Reids 101-yard interception return touchdown was the big play Houston needed to overcome a mistake-prone Deshaun Watson and beat the Washington Redskins 23-21 on Sunday, tying the franchise record with their seventh consecutive victory.From a gruesome , season-ending injury to Redskins quarterback Alex Smith to three turnovers, it wasnt pretty, but the Texans (7-3) became the first team since the 1925 New York Giants to win seven in a row after starting 0-3.With this team, you never know where the plays going to come from, defensive end J.J. Watt said. You never know whos going to make it offense, defense, special teams but youve got to find a way. For the seventh time, we found a way.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. Smiths right leg turned the wrong way in eerily similar fashion to Joe Theismanns broken leg on a Lawrence Taylor sack exactly 33 years ago to the day.I know it was very painful for him and heartbreaking for a lot of people Zach Fulton Color Rush Jersey , Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. Hes a great guy and hard worker and one of the key leaders on this football team. These things happen in pro football, unfortunately. Just hate to see them happen with a guy like Alex.Colt McCoy replaced Smith and threw for a touchdown pass and led a long scoring drive for Washington (6-4), which likely will have to rely on the journeyman quarterback the rest of the way. When a McCoy-led drive finished with an Adrian Peterson touchdown to put the Redskins up 21-20 early in the fourth quarter, it was the first lead change in a game involving the Redskins all season.You pray for opportunities to get to play, said McCoy, who was 6 of 12 for 54 yards. You dont like to see it how it happened today.Houston went ahead for good on a 54-yard field goal by Kaimi Fairbairn, who missed a 44-yarder earlier. The winning streak stayed alive when Redskins kicker Dustin Hopkins missed a 63-yard field-goal attempt with 3 seconds left.We just have belief, Watson said. Everyone keeps fighting. No one is doubting each other. Regardless, we try to play complementary football, but when the offense needs the defense to help us out, they do that and vice-versa.EMPTY SEATSEven though there were plenty of empty seats and a total attendance of 61,593 that was far below a sellout, Redskins cornerback Josh Norman called the crowd electrifying. Norman last week criticized fans for not having players backs at home and said the team plays better on the road.What an atmosphere Jay Prosch Color Rush Jersey , right? Norman said. You guys came out and you showed up in a big way. We cant be more proud and excited to be among you guys. I applaud you all, for sure.PETERSONS UP AND DOWN DAYPeterson ran for two touchdowns to continue climbing the NFL rushing chart, but was bottled up on a lot of his other carries. Petersons 3- and 7-yard TD runs gave him 105 in his career and moved him past former Redskins star John Riggins into sole possession of sixth all time, one behind Jim Brown for fifth.Peterson finished with 51 yards on 16 carries.QUIET THOMASIn his second game with the Texans, Demaryius Thomas was a non-factor. Watson only threw his way twice once on a play wiped out by a penalty and the former Broncos receiver did not have a catch.Thomas stayed in Houston during the bye week in Houston to study the playbook and watch film after making a handful of newcomer mistakes in his debut. Thomas had three catches for 61 yards in that game, but disappeared from the offense Sunday.MR. RELEVANTWashington receiver Trey Quinn made a major impact in his return after missing more than two months with a high-ankle sprain. Quinn, who was Mr. Irrelevant caught four passes for 49 yards starting in place of injured wideout Jamison Crowder and would have been the emergency QB had McCoy gone down.INJURIESTexans: RG Zach Fulton left with a shoulder injury on the first drive, and LG Senio Kelemete left with an ankle injury in the second quarter. CB Aaron Colvin missed his seventh game in a row with an ankle injury.Redskins: DL Jonathan Allen was evaluated for a concussion but returned. Crowder missed his sixth consecutive game with an ankle injury, RB Chris Thompson his third consecutive game with injured ribs and LT Trent Williams his third consecutive game after surgery for a dislocated right thumb.UP NEXTTexans: Host the division rival Tennessee Titans on Monday, Nov. 26.Redskins: Visit the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. HOUSTON (AP) Houston Texans running back DOnta Foreman has recovered from a ruptured Achilles tendon he suffered almost a year ago and could return to practice soon.When Foreman returns to practice the team will have 21 days to take him off the physically unable to perform list and add him to the active roster.He believes he could return to practice as early as this week.Im just waiting for them to let me know, but I think it will be this week, he said. I definitely think it will be this week. But Im just ready to go out there. Whenever they put my helmet in my locker and tell me: Lets go.'Foreman, a third-round pick in 2017 from Texas Derek Newton Color Rush Jersey , ran for 327 yards with two touchdowns and had 83 yards receiving before his injury on Nov. 19.Coach Bill OBrien didnt give an exact date for when he expects him to begin practicing, but said Monday that it would be pretty soon. After that theyll evaluate him to see if hes in good enough shape to return to the active roster.I think that theres a lot of thought that goes into that for the player and for the team, OBrien said.He has not played football in a long time. Hes a very young player. Hes got a lot of talent, everybody saw that last year, but lets see where hes at. Lets see where hes at before we start handing him the ball in big games.Foreman, who won the Doak Walker Award as the nations top collegiate running back in 2016, said hes feeling great now, but that his rehabilitation process was trying.At first it was difficult, he said. I just had a lot of up and down days not knowing if I would feel the same or how would I feel coming off of it. But Ive been rehabbing for a long time (and) Im just looking forward to getting back out there.The Texans, who are coming off their bye, visit Washington on Sunday before hosting the Titans on Nov. 26.
