09/11/17 - QB Tom Savage was benched at halftime of Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. Savage completed 7 of 13 passes for 62 yards and the Texans trailed 19-0 at halftime. Savage was bludgeoned before being benched, sacked six times while leading an offense that amassed 52 yards on 28 plays in the first half. "The decision to go with Deshaun (Watson) had more to do with could we find a spark, could we find somebody that maybe could make a play, that could escape the pocket," O'Brien said. "I thought that Tom hung in there and played very tough. But we had a hard time protecting him so I made the decision to go with Deshaun."

Savage completed 23 of 36 passes for 260 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. "I wouldn't be suited up if I wasn't mentally ready to go out there," said Savage, who last played Dec. 14, 2014, at Indianapolis. "That's what this team deserves. They deserve someone to go in there and perform. And when they called my name, that's what I tried to do."
