The Houston Texans’ offense will have to completely change with Tom Savage now at the helm.

I just posted an article earlier in the week that revealed just how amazed Houston Texans’ quarterback Tom Savage has been when it comes to all of things that Deshaun Watson is able to do on the field.

Now that Watson is out for the season, Savage will have to take over and try to help the Texans get back to the playoffs.

It sounds like Savage is grateful to get another chance to start for the Texans, after being benched during halftime of their week one loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Savage knows he can’t replace Watson, but he’ll do his best to help the Texans win.

The Texans’ offense was on a tear with Watson under center and now they’ll need to change things up with Savage back at the helm.

Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien won’t be able to run any more read-option plays and Savage is not the kind of player that can extend plays the way Watson did.

Wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller were reaping the benefits of Watson’s ability to throw the ball down the field, but I would look for tight end Ryan Griffin to now be Savage’s No. 1 target, given the fact that he’ll need to get the ball out quickly in order to avoid getting sacked.

The Texans’ offense will need to focus on quick, high percentage throws, in order to keep the chains moving if they’re going to win games going forward.
