Texans' Tank Dell caps 120-yard half with TD grab from C.J. Stroud

HOUSTON– The MVP talk for Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud will continue to grow with plays like the one he made during the two-minute drive in the second quarter against the Arizona Cardinals.

With 34 seconds left in the second quarter, the Texans were on the Cardinals’ 40-yard line.

Stroud dropped back and looked left. He ran out of a collapsing pocket, looked right, and quickly pointed to receiver Tank Dell to run toward the end zone with Cardinals linebacker Dennis Gardeck barreling toward the No. 2 pick.

But Stroud floated a pass that traveled 52.5 yards in the air and had a catch probability of 25.2%, according to the Next Gen Stats. Dell leaped for the catch and corralled the touchdown to put the Texans up 20-10.

Stroud turned around and flexed with his arms crossed to the Texans’ crowd as the audience chanted, “MVP.”
