Thirteen possessions. One scoring drive. Zero hope for the remainder of this season.
Losing dynamic wideout Will Fuller (ribs) didn't help, but anyone with a pair of eyes can see the steep, tumultuous tumble from Watson to Savage. It's easy to blame him, but Savage can't be dinged for lacking Watson's marvelous athleticism and creativity. Most of the league's signal-callers can't come close to what we saw from the rookie before he tore up his knee.
Coach Bill O'Brien told reporters on Monday that Savage will start against the Arizona Cardinals this week.
Sitting at 3-6, Houston can't help but wonder what might have been before Watson went down -- stripping the league of another star player -- and putting an underwater understudy in his place.
