Fairbairn missed a 34-yard field-goal attempt and made his lone extra-point kick in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Rams.

Fairbairn has missed two straight field-goal kicks, each from the 30-39 yard range, and has scored just three points over the last two games with Tom Savage at quarterback. We'll never know whether or not the miss played a large factor in Sunday's loss, but it notably occurred during the second quarter at a time when the Texans were down 3-0. Playing without Deshaun Watson (knee), Houston's offense has no margin of error, so it's incumbent on Fairbairn to make kicks that are considered chip shots.
