Tom Savage has played in six total National Football League games, attempting 105 passes, making him only a little bit more experienced than Watson, who it was reported Tuesday will start for the Texans in Week 2. Watson, who came off the bench in Houston's 29-7 loss to Jacksonville on Sunday, will start this week's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Watson completed 12 of 23 passes for 102 yards with a touchdown and an interception in his pro debut.

It didn't take long before Watson made an impression under center with the rookie connecting with star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins for his first career touchdown in the NFL. Now it's official: Watson will be the Texans' starter in Week 2 against the Bengals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and James Palmer.

This makes it a whopping 90kg lighter than the outgoing manual version, while also giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 9.4kW/kg. The engine will be exclusively mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, rather than the CVT automatic offered in lower-grade models.

"I would say that most of those guys are probably going to be out for the game, relative to it being a short week", O'Brien said Monday. But after that, he looked more like a rookie QB, not throwing the ball accurately when needing to throw deep and having being forced to make throws that he didn't necessarily want because of the pressure the Jags' were putting on him.

Optimism ran high for a bit, but Watson quickly faded under the pressure the Jaguars defense brought in the backfield. Savage's quarterback rating was 66.8 while Watson's was 60.4.

The Baltimore Ravens will play the next four to six weeks without rusher Danny Woodhead, who suffered a hamstring injury.

Watson replaced Savage after halftime and immediately led Houston 75 yards for a touchdown.

Then again if Savage plays another game, he would likely end up injured since the Texans' offensive line is completely inept and he has had a hard time staying healthy in the past.

If the three tight ends are not cleared to play, the Texans could promote Evan Baylis from the practice squad.

The Texans can also sign someone off another team's practice squad, but it's asking a lot for an inexperienced practice squad player to pick up Bill O'Brien's offense in two days. I think that we'll make a good decision for the team.
