The action was pretty lit during the early stages of the NFL season opener between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans.

After an interesting pre-game scene at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, the Chiefs seemed like they had scored in their first possession. That’s when the call on the field was overturned on a would-be Patrick Mahomes touchdown pass. After a sack from J.J. Watt, the Chiefs were forced to punt.

Then, in their first possession of the season, the Texans drove down the field 80 yards on nine plays. It was capped off by a 19-yard touchdown run from new Texans running back David Johnson.

Early-season overreactions can now include Houston winning the trade that sent DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals for Johnson. Bill O’Brien has been vindicated.

In all seriousness, it’s great to see the former Pro Bowler look good in his debut with the Texans. Here’s a guy that went for north of 2,100 total yards and 20 touchdowns as a sophomore back in 2016 before injuries caught up to him.
