The Houston Texans don’t have enough offensive fire power without Deshaun Watson.
Early on during Sunday’s game between the Houston Texans and the Los Angeles Rams, it looked like the Texans had a chance to stick around and possibly get a win.
Unfortunately, the Texans’ defense couldn’t do enough to contain a very explosive Rams’ offense. And their own offense couldn’t get on track.
Here are a few takeaways from the Texans’ week 10 loss to the Rams.
Jadeveon Clowney isn’t giving up
The Texans might be falling apart due to injury, but pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down.

Clowney played a big part in keeping the game close in the first half. He finished the game with three tackles for a loss, one sack and three quarterback pressures.
Tom Savage is not an NFL starter
Texans’ starting quarterback Tom Savage was able to throw a touchdown and gain 221 through the air, but two interceptions and a completion percentage of 50 percent is more than enough proof that he’s not good enough to start in the NFL.
Savage may not even be good to be a back up.
The Texans know which quarterback they need to sign, but they would rather lose with Savage under center.
DeAndre Hopkins is a stud
I, like many, expected wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins’ on-field play to suffer with Deshaun Watson out for the season, but he’s still busting his tail after earning a new contract.
Hopkins finished the game with seven receptions for 111 yards. Unfortunately, he was unable to haul in a touchdown. Too bad he can’t throw and catch the football.
