Stroud throws 2 TD passes, defense makes late stops to lead Texans over Saints 20-13

HOUSTON — — After failing to get a late stop in a loss to the Falcons last week, the Houston Texans got two in the last five minutes on Sunday to secure a victory over the New Orleans Saints.

Rookie C.J. Stroud threw for 199 yards and two touchdowns and the defense did the rest as the Texans held on for the 20-13 win.

“When the game was on the line and we needed it most, guys stepped up,” Houston coach DeMeco Ryans said. “It’s tough to win in this league, but it was awesome to see the way our guys grinded it out and the way they stepped up right there in the end.”

The victory matches Houston’s win total from last season when the team finished 3-13-1.
