The Brock Osweiler era flamed out gloriously for the Houston Texans, not even lasting a full season. Now it’s Tom Savage’s time as the former backup gets the start in Week 16. He’ll be under the bright lights of a Christmas Eve primetime game as he and the Texans welcome the Cincinnati Bengals to NRG Stadium.
Savage is obviously the story to follow here. He came in and was quite spectacular for the Texans after Osweiler was benched. He earned the win there, but now his task will be even taller. Lamar Miller will be out of action on Saturday, thus putting a heavy burden on Savage.
It’s going to be pretty difficult for Andy Dalton to be worse under center for the Bengals, and he’ll have to show the team something up against a talented defensive line from the Texans. Meanwhile, we’ll see if Deshaun Watson starts the game after taking over the reins from Tom Savage on Sunday afternoon, and we’ll see how he handles the pressure of an NFL start.
