Texans turn attention to preseason opener @ Carolina
In the last 48 hours, I've had nine hours of sleep, driven almost five hours each way back and forth to Louisiana to attend a funeral, and did a postgame show for a preseason NFL football game into the wee hours of Thursday morning.
The Houston Texans and Carolina Panthers kick off Week 1 of the National Football League preseason with an exhibition matchup Wednesday night at Bank of America Stadium. Those are encouraging numbers to see for budding quarterback that's likely on the rise.
And just to prove it wasn't a fluke, Watson had another impressive reaction to the blitz later in the game.
"We believe this is a great development for NFL officiating overall and ultimately the quality of our game", NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent said.
"There's a lot to build on, a lot to correct", Houston head coach Bill O'Brien said about Watson.
There are no definitive reports on how long the rest of the starters will play, but the home team also has the better roster.
Texans starting quarterback Tom Savage completed 9 of 11 passes for 69 yards. Carolina's elite-level starting defense is back. Here's one example, where he locks onto his first read, doesn't see an open receiver in the flat then fails to anticipate his first receiver coming open after the two defenders overreact...
Cam Newton was held out of the game due to soreness in his throwing arm, but this team is comfortable with Anderson and he knows how to run the scheme.
As I said, he was far from flawless, but what I saw I really liked. "I am ready to get Cam (Newton) back out there so we can rebuild that chemistry". Kuechly returned after missing the final six games last season with his second career confirmed concussion. Neither registered a tackle.
Among the things he saw: A breakout performance by wide receiver Damiere Byrd, who is fighting for a job in a crowded receivers group.
"We've been working on it all camp, just trying to give him chances with balls up high enough where he can go make plays", Anderson continued.
That included doing something the pedestrian Savage can't do: Decisively taking off and running for paydirt on a 15-yard score late in the third quarter. With it, you can stream Texans vs. Panthers live when it airs. Savage was under heavy pressure on the first two series.
Panthers: Vernon Butler, last year's first-round draft pick, left the game with a left knee injury and did not return. Both backups Deshaun Watson and Brandon Weeden will also see playing time. One thing O'Brien will surely lecture him on is hitting his checkdown in a more timely manner. "That's where I belong". Watson was quicker to make things happen, while Savage went from shell-shocked to a shell.

They can't all be displaced, and we think that if we were broadcasting all of ours we would be impacting upon that. Liverpool and Tottenham push the boundaries on physical endurance as they press, press then press some more.

It's not clear whether the cat is a stray, but if so it would surely find a home quickly given the fans' reaction. But Cabrera jacked a two-run shot to right-center an inning later to regain a one-run edge for Kansas City.
