Deshaun Watson replaces Tom Savage at quarterback

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.

“What you want to do is utilize it and have fun with it.”

It may, however, be difficult convincing offensive coordinator Mike Shula to call plays away from McCaffrey.

“He’s just so fun to watch,” Shula said. “You can do different things Brandon Marshall Jersey with him. He’s so smart, so instinctive.

“It is fun, and you’d like to think that, ‘Yeah, you can be real creative and it’s all about what you’re going to do coaching-wise’. No. You want to get those guys the ball and get them comfortable doing what they do best, and he can do a lot of things really well, and give him a Danny Woodhead Womens Jersey chance to go make somebody miss or run somebody over.”

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.

Dolphins coach, players react to Arian Foster’s retirement

Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase received a text from Arian Foster at 5:30 a.m. on Monday.

At that time of day, Gase had a feeling the news wasn’t good.

Foster explained to Gase that he was retiring from the NFL after eight seasons. The former Pro Bowl running back was struggling with a pair of injuries to his groin and hamstring that were not healing like he expected. Foster rushed for just 5 yards on three carries Sunday in a win over the Buffalo Bills and made up his mind after the game.

“I was hoping I was wrong,” said Gase, who Bradley Roby Jersey added he was caught off guard. “But he did a lot of good things in a short period of time for us. I know the injuries were really frustrating for him.”

In hindsight, Bryant said not playing against the Packers was “an outstanding decision.” He also said he feels as good as he felt heading into the season opener.

Last season Bryant returned to the lineup after missing five games because of a broken right foot, but he was not the same player before the Cowboys shut him down for the final two games of a forgettable 4-12 season. Bryant had just one 100-yard game and never had more than five Brandon Marshall Jersey catches in a game.

“It’s something minor,” Bryant said of the tibial plateau fracture. “This is nothing compared to the foot. You know, see me, I’m not a good exaggerator. I say what I mean. I mean what I say. It was minor. I feel good. Just can’t wait to get back out there.”

Bryant suffered the injury on the second play from scrimmage Sept. 25 against the Chicago Bears. He missed six snaps before returning and finished the game with three catches for 40 yards and a touchdown.

After the game, the Cowboys believed Bryant suffered some kind of fracture but wanted an MRI to confirm the initial diagnosis. Bryant essentially went missing for two days before finally getting the exam. While he did not fear his season was over at the time, “I just hated the fact that why it had to happen, especially when I was feeling that good,” Bryant said.

So how long ago does Sept. 25 seem?

The Rams sent an assortment of high-round draft picks to the Tennessee Titans in order to move up 14 spots and select Goff out of Cal.

But he struggled in the preseason, completing only 45 percent of his passes while committing four turnovers, and he never really challenged Keenum for the starting job. Goff was inactive for the Monday Night Football opener against the San Francisco 49ers, slotted behind Sean Mannion as the third-string quarterback, then served as the backup over the next six weeks.

Five quarterbacks selected after Goff have already started NFL games, a list highlighted by Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles (second overall) and Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys (135th).
