Panthers Down Texans In Opener With Many Locals In Action

Texans vs. Panthers Point Spread: NFL Preseason

The cheers were even louder when Watson outran two defenders for a 15-yard touchdown - although Panthers fans tried to cover the celebration with boos. On multiple kick/punt coverages in the first half there were at least three missed tackles, and Eddie Pleasant (who's actually had a great training camp) went back in time to 2014 and 2015 when he was a penalty machine, almost decapitating a Panthers punt returner about two seconds before the football arrived.

Here's your takeaways for all three phases of the game. "Deshaun and Brandon will play".

"This game really helped me take that next step", he said.

"I always knew I've been a player and I've been able to play", Byrd said late Wednesday night.

Out at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte on Wednesday, August 9, the Houston Texans will visit the Carolina Panthers in NFL Week 1 preseason action.

The defense got off to a strong start, with a couple of three and outs. After he threw for the first four days of training camp, the Panthers shut down Newton when he had soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder. Watson, a two-time Heisman finalist, had a solid showing, completing 15-of-25 passes for 179 yards and running three times for 24 yards and a touchdown. "I feel like I have a good foundation, but I need to continue building on that foundation". "I am ready to get Cam (Newton) back out there so we can rebuild that chemistry".

Savage, in his fourth season with the Texans, has played in just five National Football League games, including two starts last season when the now-departed Brock Osweiler was benched. He's only expected to play a series Wednesday, if that.

Neither player registered a tackle. And this without starting ends Julius Peppers and Charles Johnson.

Entering the game in the second quarter, he displayed the same kind of poise he demonstrated so often in Death Valley, and certainly made a case that he could not only be the Texans' QB of the future, but their present as well.

D'Onta Foreman ran nine times for 76 yards while Blue carried the ball five times for 33 yards while Dres Anderson caught four passes for 40 yards for Houston.

As of right now, Savage is likely to start Week 1 for the Texans. It completed a 13-play, 75-yard drive that consumed more than seven minutes.

Wide receiver Damiere Byrd reeled one in from 50 yards out and Kelvin Benjamin climbed the ladder over Houston cornerback Jonathan Joseph for another. The two will be heavily scrutinized during the preseason. Chris Clark started at left tackle.

The most glaring issue that came from Houston's first game was the penalties.

Texans: "I'm so happy to be back with my guys", Watt said of his return. Nevertheless, the jovial 23-year-old seems to be having just as much fun now as he did at Clemson. "That's where I belong". Byrd also returned one kick for 22 yards and two punts for 19 yards.
