Texans make critical change, beat Jags

I had to kill Bob Morton because he made a mistake. Now it’s time to erase that mistake!”

— Ronnie Cox as Dick Jones in Robocop

The Texans erased a key mistake on Sunday, benching Brock Osweiler for Tom Savage.

The end result? A clutch 21-20 win over the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars. It kept the Texans tied atop the AFC South with Tennessee, a team that is playing terrific football and upset Kansas City on Sunday.

Savage came off the bench and looked like a decent quarterback. He completed 23 of 36 for 260 yards after Osweiler had back to back picks. He led the Texans to a critical win.

Some old problems reared their ugly heads. The offensive play calling was terrible. The special teams were worse. But somehow, the Texans emerged with a win. Probably because the Jags can’t stop stepping on their own junk.

Bill O’Brien needs to thank Romeo Crennel and his defense for keeping his job. The Texans defense was awesome all day. The offense and the special teams damned near lost the game. But Quentin Demps came up with the game-ending pick, and the game was over.

The Texans did what they needed to do. They beat the Jags. And the move to Savage made it happen.

  1. Do you think savage is going to stick?


  2. He better stick, Brock can’t stick it in a Monster Truck tire!


  3. How did you leave Clowney out of this write up? He wrecked the game, constantly making big plays. I went to the game today and its really the first time Ive had a chance to watch a game in its entirety thanks to Red Zone and boy did Clowney impress me. I am very excited to see this defense with Clowney and Watt playing together next year.


  4. Savage needs to stick. He has been in the system 3 years and knows it. As long as he doesn’t turn the ball over, and manages the game with solid decisions, you have to ride with him. He is mobile as well which is a plus with a banged up O-line. He is a long term option ? Who knows. You still have to burn a high pick on the position.
