Tom Savage, offense aim to pick up pace

Tom Savage and the offense want to get quicker.

The quarterback, as well as head coach Bill O'Brien, said the Texans need to pick up the pace when it comes to executing plays.

"Get up, get set and be on the offensive on that side," Savage said Wednesday. "We really want to dictate what we want to do, and I agree with him 100 percent. We've got to go out there and get on the ball a little quicker and snap the ball and play fast."

The Texans ran 57 offensive plays in the 12-10 victory over Cincinnati, but O'Brien wants to see a change.

"We played too slow against Cincinnati," O'Brien said. "I want us to play faster. It doesn't mean a whole game of no-huddle. It just means we need to get in and out of the huddle quicker and play the game at a better tempo."

Savage completed 18-of-29 passes for 176 yards, with all but 13 of those passing yards coming in the second half. Offensive coordinator George Godsey wants to see better execution throughout the entirety of the Week 17 matchup this Sunday at Tennessee.

"We're just trying to be more consistent offensively," Godsey said. "The game's on the schedule for a reason. We're going to try to win it."

The Texans will practice again on Thursday and Friday, and fly to Nashville on Saturday. Kickoff is Sunday at noon CT.
