Fairbairn’s FG in OT lifts Texans over Cowboys 19-16

DeAndre Hopkins had 151 yards receiving, including a key reception in overtime and Ka’imi Fairbairn’s 36-yard field goal lifted the Houston Texans to a 19-16 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.

The Cowboys got the ball first in OT but had to punt when Zach Cunningham stopped Ezekiel Elliott for no gain on third-and-1.

A 49-yard catch and run by Hopkins got the Texans in scoring range in overtime. He grabbed a short pass from Watson and twice spun away from would-be tacklers to stretch the play.

Houston was just 1 of 5 in the red zone on Sunday with Fairbairn making four field goals to help the Texans to the victory.

Deshaun Watson threw for 375 yards with a touchdown and an interception for the Texans (2-3), who won in overtime for the second straight week.

Dak Prescott had 208 yards passing and a touchdown but threw two interceptions for the Cowboys (2-3). Elliott, who entered the game as the NFL’s leading rusher, was limited to 54 yards rushing.
