The uncertainty of the storm also left their plans for the week in limbo.
The Texans' game against the Jaguars is getting a lot more attention than normal because so much of the Houston area has been devastated from extensive flooding. "For three hours, we want to take people's minds off everything that's happened". There was a good chunk there where we were going as Kareem was going. Maybe he will get pulled out for a few plays and gets some rest so they don't over exhaust his back, but that's for Mike Vrabel and O'Brien to decide. He was asked to describe his play.
Watt's is very excited for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Can't play much worse.
The game had been a tight one until the final quarter.
The defense was led by big free agent addition, defensive end Calais Campbell, who produced a franchise single-season record 3.5 sacks in the first 29 minutes of the game. Fournette ran for 18 yards on eight carries in that game.
The Week 7 bye would have been the right time to make a quarterback change, after seeing what Savage had over a decent period of time and allowing a raw Watson to watch.
The Texans aren't just playing for themselves this week, they're playing for the entire city of Houston and anyone affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Robinson caught a 17-yard pass from quarterback Blake Bortles to provide the Jaguars with their initial first down of the game. On his first drive, he marched the Texans down the field for their only touchdown, which was a 4-yard pass to fellow Clemson Tiger DeAndre Hopkins.
The Texans coughed it up again late in the third quarter when Watson fumbled on a sack by Fowler and Ngakoue recovered it. Two Jason Myers field goals made it 6-0 Jaguars. Unfortunately, they may have lost Pro Bowl wide receiver Allen Robinson for the season with a torn ACL along the way. Jaguars LB Paul Posluszny led the team with 133 tackles in 2016, his team-record fifth season with 100 tackles.
The city of Houston has brighter days ahead of it, beginning with the start of the National Football League regular season this Sunday. "We didn't perform the way we wanted to for ourselves, for anybody". It doesn't necessarily mean you got to sack him. And that frustration boiled over Sunday when one disgruntled supporter chucked his hat at Dalton as the Bengals QB left the field after Cincinnati's 20-0 defeat to the visiting Baltimore Ravens.
