Watson will start his first game on Thursday, when the Texans take on the Cincinnati Bengals. "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".

The Texans made a decision to replace Savage as starting signal-caller after he failed to put the team on the board in first half of action against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday.

From T-shirts to buttons and stickers, the Houston Strong theme took over NRG Stadium on Sunday. Right guard Jeff Allen suffered an ankle injury, and JJ Watt dislocated a finger. The biggest issue for the defense was not being able to stop Jacksonville's run game. And he'll continue to go to the rookie, even though Watson will now have a short week to prepare for his first National Football League start, as the Texans play at Cincinnati on Thursday night this week.

Or they could stick with Savage, a traditional pocket passer who didn't commit any glaring errors and was helpless behind a suspect offensive line that allowed him to be sacked six times.

After replacing Savage at halftime Sunday, Watson completed 12 of 23 passes for 102 yards, one touchdown and one interception for a 60.4 passer rating. Marvin Lewis' teams are 0-3 against first-time starters. But whenever a defense holds quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a mere 17 points, the team usually beats Green Bay. Give a quarterback time to throw in Hopkins' vicinity, and he's got to be a difference-maker in a game that has a lot of early-season significance for both teams trying to rebound from early-season embarrassments.

"He's a playmaker with good instincts and he's young", Texans quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan said. Was I wrong! I actually had the pleasure of attending today's game and the crowd roared as loud as it had been during the starting lineups when Watson marched out onto the field.
