Why Deshaun Watson should start from this point forward

While Houston has yet to confirm its choice after Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Monday he wasn't sure who would start at quarterback, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said on a Tuesday conference call he is preparing to face Watson.

The Houston Texans are reportedly going with Deshaun Watson as the team's starting quarterback for Thursday night's Week 2 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Watson replaced Tom Savage quickly on Sunday afternoon during Houston's humiliating loss to the Jaguars at home during Week 1.

They have to establish the running game early, and they have to use rookie D'Onta Foreman more than they did on Sunday when he carried once for 4 yards. Savage's quarterback rating was 66.8 while Watson's was 60.4.

With all three tight ends on the roster in the concussion protocol and doubtful to play in Thursday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Houston Texans are bound to look for some outside help. And it's going to be fun to see how Watson's game translates to the NFL; Bears fans are probably wishing their team had a similarly short leash with a rookie waiting in the wings. We know Savage's durability isn't all that great so he was cautious with his body and did not want to risk further injury to himself.

For the game, the Jaguars had 280 total yards of offense, 155 on the ground and 125 in the air, compared to 203 for the Texans.

It is a completely unfounded fear - Muslims are just 4% of Burma's population - but many Buddhist Burmese are obsessed by it. Myanmar has said it is was counting on China and Russian Federation to protect it from any Security Council censure.

The Texans could not generate any more points and the Jaguars added a field goal to make the final score, 29-7. However, the rest of his performance was uneven, as he completed just 12-of-23 passes for 102 yards, added 16 yards on the ground, and committed two turnovers.

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

Receiver Jaelen Strong returns from his one-game suspension.

If the Texans can run consistently, it will set up the play-action, and that's when Hopkins needs to step up and ignite the offense with some electrifying receptions.

When asked about that drive, JJ Watt said, "We didn't stop them". Moving forward from a fantasy perceptive, Watson's lone TD toss went to DeAndre Hopkins.
