Deshaun Watson replaces Tom Savage at quarterback

After a bad first half for Savage, the Texans have put their first round pick into the game in Week 1. Following a brutal first half in which the Houston Texans were booed off the field, Bill O’Brien opted to make a change at quarterback. Tom Savage has been benched, and first round pick Deshaun Watson started the third quarter for Houston. The Texans generated just 52 yards of offense in the first half and Savage turned the ball over twice, including a fumble that was returned for a touchdown just before halftime.
