Houston Texans’ quarterback Tom Savage seems to understand why the fans have been booing him.

Since taking over as the Houston Texans’ starting quarterback, Tom Savage has not done a good job when it comes to protecting the football.

Savage has already thrown three interceptions and has fumbled the football five times over the past three games.

While talking to the media on Wednesday, Savage admitted that the turnovers must stop.

Savage was also asked about Texans’ fans booing him and he had some good answers.

I’m sure Savage is a nice guy, but Texans’ fans aren’t worried about that. They just want their team to win football games while not throwing interceptions and fumbling the ball.

Savage will really be tested on Monday night against a Baltimore Ravens defense that bolsters the second ranked pass defense. They only give up an average of 185 yards through the air per game this season.

Andre Ellington should be able to help Savage

I would imagine that the addition of running back Andre Ellington should take some pressure off of Savage as well as current starting running back Lamar Miller.

The Ravens have one of the worst run defenses in the NFL so far this year, so Miller and Ellington could have a big night.

The Texans seem to be very excited about having Ellington on their roster now. Check out the tweet below:

Success on the ground this week against the Ravens would help open up the passing game for Savage and his wide receivers.
