play
Watson, Savage both score in Texans' win (1:02)

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

In the first two preseason games, Texans rookie running back D'Onta Foreman has the team's longest rush (41 yards) and catch (63 yards). Foreman said he thinks he catches the ball well and wanted to show that is a part of his game.

Savage wants to be starter 'real bad' (0:47)

J.J. Watt's TFL tonight was his first tackle in a game since his back surgery nearly a year ago. Watt said it was "a great feeling," but only a glimpse of what is possible this season: ."There's a lot of stuff I've been working on for a very long time. There's a lot of plays that have built up in the archives that I want to get out there and make."

Savage connects with Strong for TD (0:15)

Two-yard touchdown run by rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson. That's his second touchdown run in two games.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

That was a 63-yard catch-and-run for D'Onta Foreman. He broke a lot of tackles and almost got into the end zone.

Brady throws his first touchdown of 2017 (0:30)

It looked like Deshaun Watson had Dres Anderson open in the end zone on third down. The Texans settle for a field goal on a 10-play, 62-yard drive.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

Bruce Ellington has had a great game so far: four catches for 93 yards, including a 33-yard catch-and-run and a 37-yard acrobatic catch.

Deshaun Watson is playing with the top (available) wide receivers: Jaelen Strong, Dres Anderson and Bruce Ellington.

Deshaun Watson went three-and-out on his first drive. RaShaun Allen's third-down fumble was overturned and ruled an incompletion.

So far this preseason, Savage has played five drives. He started with two three-and-outs. His last three drives: a touchdown (Alfred Blue 16-yard run), fourth-down stop on the 8 after a run and a two-yard touchdown pass.

Tom Savage is done after two drives. Deshaun Watson is in at quarterback. Savage was 8/9 for 98 yards and a touchdown.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

Tom Savage's first two drives tonight were a 180 from the preseason opener. Savage was 8/9 for 98 yards and led the Texans 58 yards down the field, throwing a touchdown pass to Jaelen Strong on second down. Texans are up 7-0 with 1:13 left in the first quarter.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

It looks like J.J. Watt's night is done after one series. He played six snaps and had a tackle for a loss.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

That TFL was J.J. Watt's first tackle since his back surgery last season. If he plays like that this season, this Texans' defense will be on another level in 2017.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

The Texans' defensive line was J.J. Watt, D.J. Reader and Brandon Dunn to start the game. Dunn is starting across from Watt with Jadeveon Clowney not playing.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

The Texans don't score after Lamar Miller was stopped on fourth down. Tom Savage and Bruce Ellington connected three times for 60 yards on that drive.
