19. Houston Texans (14)
It’s only been one game for the Houston Texans, and already it’s clear just how much this team is going to miss Deshaun Watson running the offense for the remainder of the season. Not only did the Texans end up on the losing end at home against the Indianapolis Colts, but it took Tom Savage until the fourth quarter before finally tossing his first touchdown pass of the game.
When looking at the weapons Savage has to work with, this is completely unacceptable when considering that Watson had no issues doing so in the games leading up to last week when the rookie suffered a torn ACL. All of a sudden, Houston appears to be in trouble thanks to once again having issues at the quarterback position since Savage seems incapable of getting the job done.
In a way, it’s tough not to feel bad for a team like the Texans when looking at all of the potential surrounding this team when key players like Watson and J.J. Watt were healthy. Unfortunately, this team is showing signs of watching their streak of division titles come to an end since the offense doesn’t seem like it’s going to be able to compete under Savage.
