Houston Texans Clinch AFC South With Win Over Bucs

December 21, 2019 - 4:15 pm

The Houston Texans clinched the AFC South division title and a spot in the NFL playoffs after beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-20 on Saturday.

Houston jumped out to an early 17-3 lead, thanks to an interception returned for a touchdown by cornerback Bradley Roby and a short touchdown run by Carlos Hyde. 

Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston, who came into the game leading the league in passing yards and interceptions, threw four interceptions in this game. Three of those came in the first half. 

The Bucs tied the game at 17 by halftime. The teams traded field goals in the second half before Jahleel Addae intercepted a Winston pass late in the fourth quarter, sealing it for the Texans.

Houston (10-5) hosts the Tennessee Titans next Sunday to finish the regular season.

Whether the Texans go into the playoffs as the No. 3 or No. 4 seed remains to be determined.
