When Atlanta was ultimately stopped in the end zone by the Texans defense, the Falcons were forced to settle for a 33-yard field goal by Younghoe Koo with 6:57 left to play. Reid Layman

Houston 12, Atlanta 15
The Falcons gained their first lead and score since the beginning of the first quarter when Bijan Robinson, who is well-known in Austin, scored on a 6-yard shuttle throw and the 2-point attempt was successful. The Falcons covered 74 yards in 13 plays and converted third downs on 3 out of 3 attempts. Reid Layman

Exclusion of Tank Dell

The Texans had numerous opportunities to score but were once again unsuccessful and were limited to a Ka’imi Fairbairn field goal. Tank Dell and Rober Woods, two receivers, also succumbed to harm.

Houston forced two turnovers, gaining 10 yards and three points from each while doing so. Reid Layman

Robert Woods, a wide receiver with the Texans, is another WR out and his comeback is uncertain due to a rib injury. Tank Dell is also sidelined due to what may be a concussion. Brooks Kubena

Houston defeats Atlanta 12–7
Bijan Robinson’s fumble was forced by Khalil Davis, giving the Texans a first down at the Atlanta 30. Houston only gained four yards, however, and was forced to settle for a fourth Ka’imi field goal. Reid Layman

Houston 9, Atlanta 7 at the break
The Texans occasionally acted more like the AFC South team tied for last than the one tied for first. The Falcons didn’t perform much better. C.J. Stroud and Desmond Ridder, two rookie quarterbacks, both displayed moments of brilliance but also suffered from errors in judgment and dropped passes. Both teams committed untimely penalties. Houston won thanks to a drive in the last two minutes.

Falcons 17, 24, Texans 24: I predicted the Texans to win this game before the season began, and I’m going to stay with that prediction. The Texans usually prey on young,

They continue to play inexperienced quarterbacks this Sunday in Desmond Ridder. They can win this game if they can contain rookie running back Bijan Robinson, which won’t be simple. John M. Alexander

It might be time to start putting more faith in DeMeco Ryan’s defense after the Texans defeated the Falcons 20–13. The Falcons can run the ball, but if C.J. Stroud keeps playing well, they won’t be able to score enough points to keep up with the opposition with their meager passing attack. Jerrome Solomon

Texans 24, Falcons 20: Thanks to his strongest offensive line rotation to date, C.J. Stroud can extend his record-breaking start, mostly because the line should improve the run game. Bijan Robinson will gain his yards, but Desmond Ridder, who has been sacked 11 times in the past two games, could be under pressure from a Texans front. Brooks Kubena
