Deshaun Watson ran for touchdown in first game

JJ Watt will play in Texans' preseason opener

After a long six months of waiting, football is finally back in Houston.

As for the game itself, he even had fans at Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium cheering like mad. A clip of Boulware accurately predicting one of Alabama's plays with perfection in the national championship game, then frantically urging his teammates to adjust accordingly to prevent it, is an example he points to when he speaks of his game knowledge. "I saw the first flashes of Deshaun's leadership, his electric body language, his playmaking style - he'll bring things that Tom Savage just can't".

The debut was all positive for the most part, and the assumption that Savage, who was efficient and nothing more against better Carolina players, will be the opening-day starter while Watson continues to ideal his craft has to be revisited because the latter provides an explosiveness that the Texans have never had in the O'Brien era. There was a reason why he was picked, why we traded up to get him and ultimately why he will do great things for this organization.

So the former four-star recruit's name went uncalled at that year's NFL Draft. D'Onta Foreman had his number called three straight times on the Texan's fifth offensive possession.

Foreman got a lot of negative press earlier in the summer for his arrest on charges of unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of marijuana.

Late into the first half, Watson had the Texans down by the endzone where, yet again, he used his feet to his advantage. Anderson went 4 of 5 for 76 yards. "When he showed some real problems with that shoulder, maybe some soreness, you take him out".

American Catherine Bellis won 74 percent of her first-service points to upend eighth-seeded Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova, 6-4, 7-5. Pliskova benefited from an ailing Osaka, who was forced to retire in the third set as she trailed the top seed 6-2 6-7 (4-7) 1-0.

Stoneman, Crane included in England squad for first Test against West Indies
He's only played a couple of seasons of first-class cricket and that's an bad lot to ask making the step up to Test cricket. Jennings was dropped from the England squad to face the West Indies in a day/night Test at Edgbaston later this month.

The Texans are absolutely loaded at running back. He is a gifted athlete and is showing some impressive knowledge of how the game works. He's been in big games. I don't have a very good comparison.

Quessenberry is the best feel-good story in football right now. On multiple kick/punt coverages in the first half there were at least three missed tackles, and Eddie Pleasant (who's actually had a great training camp) went back in time to 2014 and 2015 when he was a penalty machine, almost decapitating a Panthers punt returner about two seconds before the football arrived. Nick's a good player. "We knew what we were going to get, so really it was just going out there and executing it". As a special teams ace and emergency QB, fine. Plus he can return kicks. But Byrd has served notice that the Panthers have more than one deep threat.

Carolina won three fewer games but was victimized by bad luck a year after reaching the Super Bowl. Promising rookie DeShone Kizer had taken the remainder of first-team reps. To be clear, there were throws I'm sure Watson would like back.

Watson relieved starter Tom Savage and completed 15 of his 25 passes for 179 yards. The sooner he picks up that clipboard, the better for the Texans. The trouble is he never seems to follow through once the regular season starts. At right tackle, there is a competition between Chris Clark, Kendall Lamb, and Breno Giacomini for the starting job. "I think there's things that we need to correct as an offense, not just them".

What does he want out of Wednesday night's game? With all eyes on him, he stepped up and displayed veteran poise both in and out of the pocket as he picked apart the Panthers (second-string) secondary. During the third possession for the offense, the Texans had a false start penalty and two holding penalties that negated a four yard gain and a 12 yard gain.
