Watson leads Texans to win in first career start

J.J. Watt made a highlight reel tackle Thursday

J.J. Watt made a highlight reel tackle Thursday

The clothes and the moment were a ideal fit for the national champ.

In Thursday night's win for the Houston Texans, DeShaun Watson took over as the team's starter.

Feeding a playmaker like Green, who caught just five passes on eight targets for 67 yards against the Texans, would certainly be a start. That put the Texans up, 10-3, and ended up being the only touchdown of the night. The whole sideline went insane.

Even when the Bengals score a touchdown, they don't. Both losses have come at home, showing they could be in trouble on the road. The team has fielded just three healthy receivers in each of its two games.

"I am shocked. Yes I am", coach Marvin Lewis said of his offense's performance through the first two weeks of the season so far, via the team's official website.

"What's frustrating to me is we're not punching it in", cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. "Yes, I am. We should be better".

Christian Atsu scored his first goal in as many games this season as Newcastle beat Stoke City to record their third successive Premier League win and climb inside the top four.

Houston appears to be making a change at quarterback.

Watson finished with only 125 passing yards in the 13-9 victory, but he busted off an insane 49-yard touchdown rush. Often it turns out a Week 1 result in the National Football League is as much about a team's opponent as it is about the team itself.

Watson did suffer an ankle injury last week, but he was full-go in practice on Tuesday and should get the start. "Football is football. This is what I've been dreaming of my whole life". O'Brien said to Collinsworth. "He just has that ability and that knack". He was emotional in the Texans' home opener Sunday and managed only one tackle and one quarterback hit. "You telling me God don't have a plan, man?" He was taken to the locker room shortly before the half, but returned for the second half. As a cherry on top, Brian Cushing received a ten-game suspension on Wednesday.

In terms of the receiving core, DeAndre Hopkins was Watson's favorite target as he was thrown to 13 times in the game.

Savage struggled as he failed to lead a scoring drive and was sacked six times, one of which turned into a fumble.

Watt first injured his left ring finger during the Texans' loss in Week 1 but said during the week that it was still attached, "so that's all that matters". The offense slipped last season with Ken Zampese in his first season as coordinator, with injuries gutting the unit at midseason. They have never reached the playoffs after an 0-2 start. "We're not doing that right now".
