Texans' Deshaun Watson on Performance vs. Patriots: 'I Did a Decent Job'

Texans' Deshaun Watson on Performance vs. Patriots: 'I Did a Decent Job'

Those are the guys earning their bones in the preseason. This is the time to test things out. A Ka'imi Fairbairn field goal on the Texans' next drive made it 20-16.

"Yeah, I avoided the D-end at first and I was just trying to throw it away and didn't put enough on it", Garoppolo said in the post-game press conference. "That's how we go into these games mentally".

Savage lobbed a flawless spiral in the back of the end zone to connect with Jaelen Strong, who beat Pro Bowl cornerback Malcolm Butler for a leaping 2-yard TD catch. Just don't expect the four-time Super Bowl MVP to admit it. After the loss, head coach Bill Belichick said everyone on his team is making progress before adding his summertime motto that everyone has a long way to go. His best moment came when he grabbed a short pass from Watson and broke several tackles en route to a 63-yard gain that set up Watson's touchdown in the third quarter. Running, he did decently, with 7 carries for 17 yards, including an 8-yard burst and explosive touchdown run to cap off the drive. "I wish we would have won, but we had a good week of practice". When Watson was out there, there were lots of Pats' defenders getting through. Watt back on the field. He was the third back in the game behind Rex Burkhead and James White.

There was a lot of blown coverage by the secondary today which worries me.

BHP also said there was policy uncertainty in China over metallurgical coal, but the outlook for the seaborne market was positive. BHP managed to cut costs at its iron ore division in Western Australia to just $14.60 a tonne compared to today's price of $78.

Tom Savage made a fast decision when he saw Strong break across the middle against the Patriots secondary. But the pass didn't get to the sideline and was picked off by Denzel Rice, who returned it to the Patriots 4.

With Fuller expected to miss at least two months while he recovers from shoulder surgery, it's highly likely that the Texans will carry five wide receivers on their 53-man roster. "I'm going to watch the film and I'm going to continue to work on that". We'll find out sooner than later.

The Patriots fell to the Texans in Houston, 27-23, to fall to 0-2 on the preseason.

Want your voice heard? Gronk was not targeted in the passing game and came out early in the second quarter, when Jimmy Garoppolo replaced Brady at quarterback.
