JJ Watt gets hero's welcome at Houston Texans' season opener

The team's complex in Davie appears to be fine, the person said. "There's only one way to go from here and that's up". It was a decisive enough blow that not even the All-Pro combination of J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney could save the Texans.

Playing for the first time in the regular season after missing 13 games a year ago with back surgery, the star defensive end left the game early in the second quarter and finished with just one tackle.

A couple quarters was all it took for Texans coach Bill O'Brien to send Savage back to his familiar spot on the bench. We have to coach it better. That starts with me. Six of the sacks came against starter Tom Savage, while the other four came against rookie DeShaun Watson, who replaced Savage and his 7.8 QBR in the second half. Blake Bortles and the Jaguars went on to score a field goal and 2 touchdowns in the 2nd quarter and push the score to 19-0 at halftime.(Meyers missed the extra point on their first touchdown) The Texans offence was anemic at best in the first half.

After a 1,400-yard, 14-touchdown season in 2015, Robinson cooled down a year ago at Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles struggled. Osweiler ranked 27th in the National Football League past year with 2,957 yards passing, including 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions, but he still helped the Texans into the second round of the playoffs, where they lost to eventual champion New England. We knew he was a good back but hadn't really seen it.

"Let's go with Jacksonville", Campbell said, changing his mind. Here's the latest Texans vs. Jaguars game recap including top players, stats, a standings update, and what's coming up next for these teams. I'm sure that's happened to him before, in college. "This gives us a little bit of a release, a little time to not focus on the damage, not focus on everything else and just focus on a little bit of team, a little bit of community". Newton threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Russell Shepard in the first half following a fumble by Brian Hoyer, then a nine-yard touchdown to Jonathan Stewart in the third quarter after Luke Kuechly intercepted Hoyer. When Watson ran onto the field, it drew a huge cheer from the fans, who had booed Savage for most of the first half. Hopkins only hauled in seven of the looks for 55 yards, but he was the only Texans' wide receiver to catch a pass. Watt had a dislocated finger early in the game but returned to play. The one that counted certainly hurt the most after being picked off from Tashaun Gipson for a 67-yard jaunt to the end zone with 3:45 left in the game.

As for who will get the starting nod is still in question.

"We just weren't in sync", Savage said.
