The Texans edged the Denver Broncos Sunday 19-17 to win their sixth-straight game. At 6-3, the Texans remain atop the AFC South.

Meanwhile, with Will Fuller’s recent season-ending injury, the Texans went out and acquired receiver Demaryius Thomas from Denver — just days before he had to return to Denver and face the Broncos as a Texan.
