Tom Savage got exactly one half of the 2017 NFL season to prove himself as a starter. A combination of a smothering Jaguars defense and the failures of his own offensive line made his Cheap China NFL Jerseys first 30 minutes of the year a no-win situation.
Savage’s first season opener as Houston’s starting quarterback went poorly, then went goodbye. The fourth-year veteran, once a refreshing change of pace from the failed Brock Osweiler experiment of 2016, led his team to zero first half points in a 29-7 loss to Jacksonville. His awful performance was his undoing; head coach Bill O’Brien turned to rookie Deshaun Watson at halftime.
The Jaguars, 3-13 last fall, snapped a six-game losing streak against the Texans in the process; the win was just their third against Houston since 2010.
