Houston Texans QB Tom Savage's agent not happy about demotion

15 September 2017

The Texans should double team Geno Atkins every play and force the Bengals outside linemen to beat them. He might not be the franchise quarterback the Texans have been looking for since 2002, but he's better than Tom Savage regardless of what Savage's agent says.

The move comes after the Texans benched Week 1 starter Tom Savage after two lowly quarters against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, turning to Watson after halftime.

The Cincinnati Bengals failed to score a touchdown for the second consecutive game as they lost at home to the Houston Texas 13-9 on Thursday night. Watson's mobility should serve the Texans better than Savage's strong arm. He just has to avoid making big mistakes while the defense does its job.

It wasn't pretty - especially on offense - but they did enough to get the win, so that is enough to earn them some decent grades.

The Texans are starting things off at 0-1 this year after a dismal showing against the Jaguars in Week 1.

UK Foreign Secretary to visit Irma-battered Caribbean islands
On Sunday British Prime Minister Theresa May announced a £32 million ($42 million) relief fund to support the humanitarian effort. Martin, while another four people died on the Dutch side of the island, bringing the death toll in the Caribbean to at least 35.

On Thursday night, the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback and TCU Rose Bowl icon tried to get it right as the offensively challenged NFL began Week 2 of the 2017 season with a Bengals-Houston Texans pairing fraught with football-watching peril. The Texans defense is a unit that can take advantage of that with pass rushers J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney.

As I previously mentioned, Dalton is coming off one of the worst QB performances of the last decade-plus in which he threw four interceptions and converted first downs on three of nine third-downs. After a punt, they ran one more play with 2 seconds left that didn't get far.

Comment below and give us your thoughts on Thursday's game.

Over on the Bengals' side, they're now 0-1 as well after their 20-0 shutout defeat at the hands of the Ravens. Dalton is a proven National Football League starter, something the Texans don't have on their roster. Watson put on an incredible performance to earn his first win for the team, and beat a very tough team on the road for his first career victory.

"He's a playmaker with good instincts, and he's young", Ryan said.

Ross suffered a knee sprain in the Bengals' final preseason game on August 31, only two weeks ago. He's also in the NFL's concussion protocol.

With Cushing potentially out and Watt dealing with another injury, Houston's defense could have another disappointing performance against an offense that has some risky playmakers.

Coach Marvin Lewis said prior to the Week 1 game that Ross could play after returning to practice, however he was made a game-day inactive. Fortunately, that's probably not the case.

As bad as the Texans looked, the Cincinnati Bengals were worse. It's why the over/under is just 38.

The Bengals won the first three games in the series, but Houston has won five of the past six meetings, including three games at Paul Brown Stadium.
