Texans quarterback Matt Schaub found tight end Joel Dressen for a 56-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter of their game against the Raiders today. That touchdown made it 14-6 in the Texans’ favor.
Dressen’s touchdown came on the first play after Houston picked off Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell at the Texans’ 44-yard line. Schaub rolled out to his right and found Dressen at the 35-yard line.
Fantasy owners counting on Texans tight end Owen Daniels may have been a little shocked and disappointed. However, Dressen is no stranger to the stat sheet in the Texans passing game. Last year, he scored four time and caught 36 passes for 518 yards.
Dressen has three catches and 69 yards in the game so far. Daniels has four receptions for 67 yards. Houston is looking to build off a big win last week over the defending AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers. Oakland is coming off a lopsided loss to the New England Patriots.
