Fairbairn did not attempt a field goal and converted his lone extra-point kick in Saturday's 21-7 wild-card round loss to Indianapolis.
Fairbairn, the NFL's leading scorer in 2018, did not get much work in the playoff loss. Houston's defense committed early penalties that extended a couple of the Colts' drives that turned into touchdowns, putting the offense in a deep second-quarter hole. The Colts' defense then clamped down on quarterback Deshaun Watson and his weapons, preventing the offense from consistently moving the ball and limiting the Texans to one red-zone opportunity over the first three quarters. All that served to limit Fairbairn, who becomes an exclusive-rights free agent next year. The Texans are expected to bring him back for 2019.
Fairbairn went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts and 2-for-2 on extra-point kicks for eight points scored in Sunday's 20-3 win over Jacksonville.
Fairbairn finished off the regular season tops among kickers with 150 points, three field goals clear of Baltimore's Justin Tucker. He was first in field-goal attempts (42) and makes (37) as well, taking advantage of the Texans' inability to finish drives. He was a difference maker some weeks, posting double-digit points seven times, including individual games of 17, 17 and 16 points.
Fairbairn made his lone field-goal attempt and three of four extra-point kicks in Sunday's 32-30 loss to the Eagles.
Fairbairn had been successful on 24 consecutive kicks before a second-quarter extra-point attempt sailed wide right. Despite the miss, he managed a credible six points and maintained his NFL scoring lead with 142 points after 15 games.
Fairbairn made all five field-goal attempts and two extra-point kicks in Saturday's 29-22 win over the Jets.
This was the second time in three games that Fairbairn has successfully converted five field goals, and the fourth time Houston's offense has presented him with that many attempts in a game. He leads the NFL with 136 points and 34 field goals, partially due to the Texans' inability to finish drives. Houston ranks 26th in the NFL, scoring touchdowns on just 50 percent of its red zone opportunities.
Fairbairn made all three of his extra-point kicks and did not attempt a field goal in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Colts.
The three points were a season low for Fairbairn, who had shot to second among the NFL's scoring leaders after posting 38 points over the previous three games. He wasn't given much of a chance Sunday, as six of Houston's 11 possessions ended in four plays or fewer.
