This was my first season covering the Houston Texans and it was a privilege to watch this team grown and put together nine straight wins after an 0-3 start. I felt angry/down once the season was over but I've finally moved to stage 5 of  Mad Radio's 5 Stages of Anger scale.

Now, I want to relive the best moments of the 2018-2019 season. Here are my top 5 plays of the season:

5. Johnathan Joseph's pick-six of Nathan Peterman. 

With 1:30 left in the fourth quarter and the game tied 13-13, Nathan Peterman and the Buffalo Bills were attemping to win the game and end the Texans' win streak at two, but Jonathan Joseph read Peterman, jumped the route, and didn't stop until he was in the end zone. 

 

4. Deshaun Watson deep to Will Fuller for the 73-yard touchdown.

You can only imagine what else would have happened this season with a healthy Will Fuller. This was one of those plays where everyone in the pressbox stood up in anticipation and let out a muffled "Yes!"

 

3. Justin Reid's 101-yard pick-six.

Alex Smith had only thrown 3 incerceptions for the season when Justin Reid snagged his third pick of his young career. It was also the second-longest interception returned for a touchdown in Texans history. 

 

2. Lamar Miller's 97-yard touchdown run. 

Miller set the franchise record for the longest run, and it also marks the longest run in the NFL since Lamar Miller's 97-yard touchdown run in Week 17 of the 2014 season.

 

1. DeAndre Hopkins spin-cycle.

It was overtime. The Texans had stopped the Cowboys on their first attempt in overtime. There was 5:40 left in overtime. On second and nine, Deshaun Watson made the perfect throw to DeAndre Hopkins and the rest show how amazing DeAndre Hopkins is at wide reciever.
