Following a brutal first half in which the Houston Texans were booed off the field, Bill O’Brien opted to make a change at quarterback. Tom Savage has been benched, and first round pick Deshaun Watson started the third quarter for Houston.
With Watson at the helm, the Texans capped a 14-play drive with a touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins, who was struggling with Savage. Prior to the touchdown pass, Watson led Houston down the field with efficient passing, although he was aided by a pair of penalties that negated a failed third-down conversion and an interception.

The Panthers have a potentially tough matchup against the Bills this weekend. Jonathan Stewart, who scored last weekend, isn’t going away, either, so McCaffrey could be a shaky fantasy option this weekend.
