Twitter is none too pleased with Texans quarterback Tom Savage

Twitter is none too pleased with Texans quarterback Tom Savage

In his first National Football League drive, Watson threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins to cap off a 14-play, 75-yard scoring drive.

He had seen enough after Houston's offense failed to move the ball for two quarters during which Savage managed just 62 yards passing and lost two fumbles.

The Jacksonville Jaguars spoiled an emotional season opener in Houston on Sunday, beating the Houston Texans 29-7 at NRG Stadium. His touchdown put the Jacksonville up 19-0 in the game. The Texans allowed 10 sacks, including six in the first half, twice resulting in fumbles. The Jaguars piled up six first-half sacks of Savage, who rarely looked comfortable in the pocket. Texans LG Xavier Su'a-Filo was replaced by Greg Mancz to start the second half, but returned alongside Lamm later in the third quarter.

Watson's four-yard strike to Hopkins was the only touchdown of the game for the Texans.

The Texans traded up 13 spots to select Watson with the No. 12 overall selection. Although the Texans liked what they saw out of him this preseason, Savage remained the man under center for O'Brien. He completed 12 of 23 attempts for 102 yards on the day and displayed more mobility than Savage.

The Jaguars responded with a 1-yard touchdown pass from Bortles to Tommy Bohanon to extend their lead, 26-7 in the third quarter.

Houston was driving late in the fourth quarter when Watson turned it over again on an interception by Tashaun Gipson, who returned it 67 yards. Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson injured his left knee in the first quarter and didn't return.

The Texans travel to Cincinnati to face the Bengals on Thursday Night Football in Week 2.
