The Houston Texans fell to the Oakland Raiders 27-20 on Monday Night Football from Mexico City yesterday, but Texans rookie wide receiver Braxton Miller had a moment he won’t soon forget.
With the Texans trailing by 7 in the 2nd quarter, Miller caught his first ever NFL touchdown from Brock Osweiler, a 12-yard pass to cut the Texans’ deficit to 10-9 before Nick Novak‘s extra point was good.
Miller, a third-round pick out of Ohio State in the 2016 NFL Draft, out-snapped fellow rookie Will Fuller by 25 snaps in the game 65-40. Miller also received more targets from Osweiler by three.
The 23-year-old Miller, who will turn 24 next Wednesday, now has 14 catches for 87 receiving yards this season.
