O’Brien not yet naming Week 2 QB

Posted Sep 10, 2017

Head coach Bill O’Brien is not ready to name the Texans starting quarterback for Week 2 at Cincinnati.

Head coach Bill O’Brien is not yet ready to name the Texans starting quarterback for Week 2 at Cincinnati.

“I’ll think about it a long time tonight and try to continue to work on Cincinnati and see what the best approach is versus them,” O’Brien said Sunday.

The Texans made a quarterback switch during halftime of their Week 1 loss to Jacksonville. Tom Savage started the game, completing 7-of-13 for 62 yards. Two strip sacks on Savage led to back-to-back touchdown drives for the Jaguars who took a 19-0 lead in the second quarter. O’Brien made the decision to play Deshaun Watson in the second half, following six sacks on Savage.

“The decision to go with Deshaun (Watson) really didn’t have a whole lot to do with – it had more to do with could we find the spark?” O’Brien said. “Could we find somebody that could maybe make a play, that could escape the pocket? Things like that. I thought that Tom (Savage) really hung in there and played very tough. We had a hard time protecting him. So, I just made the decision to go with Deshaun.”

In his first NFL game, the rookie quarterback orchestrated a 14-play, 75-yard scoring drive on his opening series. Watson completed passes to DeAndre Hopkins, C.J. Fiedorowicz and also scrambled for a nine-yard gain before connecting with Hopkins on a four-yard touchdown pass.

“That was a big drive,” O’Brien said. “I thought we had a little bit of momentum at that point, with the crowd into it. Deshaun (Watson) did a nice job on that drive. Nice touchdown pass to Hop (DeAndre Hopkins). We didn’t play complementary football at all. We just didn’t. We weren’t able to complement each other. It was the reverse of that actually. So, we got a long way to go. There’s no choice. The only choice is to just keep working and try to figure out what we can do to be better.”

Watson finished the game 12-of-23 for 102 yards, one touchdown and one interception. The Texans have a short week as they travel to Cincinnati to play the (0-1) Bengals on Thursday Night Football.
