Watson throws TD pass to help Texans over Lions 30-23

HOUSTON (AP) Houston's Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins knew they weren't going to get much playing time on Saturday night so they were intent on making the few plays they got count.

"Just trying to go out there and be perfect," Hopkins said. "We don't have many plays so those plays that you do have, you want to make them the best."

Watson took advantage of one series in his preseason debut, looking sharp in directing a 75-yard drive capped by a 4-yard touchdown pass to Hopkins to help the Houston Texans to a 30-23 win over the Detroit Lions.
