Patriots score first touchdown of game with James White reception in third quarter vs Texans.

It took just under three quarters, but the New England Patriots have their first touchdown of the game against the Houston Texans. After Deshaun Watson and company lit up the Patriots defense for three touchdowns, the Patriots worked their way downfield on a 12-play drive. On 3rd and 10, quarterback Tom Brady hit running back James White on a wide open route for the 12-yard touchdown.

While this play offered a glimmer of hope for New England, they were slapped back down by the strong hand of reality with Kai Forbath's extra point miss, keeping their deficit at 21-9.

Welcome to kicker hell, Patriots!
