Imagine being the underdog Houston Texans coming into Kansas City to meet the Chiefs, in Arrowhead Stadium. You’ve blown the doors back with a quick touchdown connection from star Deshaun Watson to the speedy Kenny Stills. You’ve capped a 24-0 run to jump-start the game, with a Ka’imi Fairbairn 31-yard field goal.
