Looks like he had Josh Morgan for a clear 1st down at the 45. Looks like Morgan had enough room to run the final three yards for a 1st.
Who knows tho? By the time that Morgan comes into view -- the guy covering him is clearly reacting to the ball that's already left Smith's hands.
In other words -- Morgan may not have been "that" open.
Clearly though -- Alex gave the Texans something to think about defensively.
Hindsight is clearly 20-20 -- but it would have been nice to see some Gore runs mixed into that final drive -- just to keep the Texans on their toes.
I know. I know. Time was an issue. I do understand.
