Tom Savage moves Texans well in two series of work

Texans quarterback Tom Savage had his ups and downs in his first preseason outing of the year, but things were more consistent in Saturday night’s game against the Patriots. Savage played two possessions before being relieved by Deshaun Watson in the second quarter of the game. Savage moved the team 81 yards over eight plays to open the game, although the drive didn’t lead to any points because Lamar Miller was stopped short on a fourth down inside the Patriots’ 10-yard-line.
