Deshaun Watson completed 3-of-10 passes for 102 yards and rushed four times for ten yards and a touchdown in the Texans' second preseason game. Watson struggled as a passer, but Bruce Ellington and D'Onta Foreman spiked his yards-per-attempt average with big run-after-catch plays, and Watson rushed for a score for the second straight week. Tom Savage is more advanced as a pocket passer, but Watson's playmaking ability is going to be needed by the Texans sooner rather than later. Savage remains the favorite to start Week 1.

Deshaun Watson said he feels in "control" of the offense. "Honestly, in the spring I knew what I was doing, but at the same time my head was swimming," Watson said. "But whenever I step on the field today, I can go out there and control the offense and do what they ask me to do and make good decisions, fast." After saying Watson was further ahead than any rookie quarterback he has been around, coach Bill O'Brien probably would not take much offense to the rookie's self-evaluation. Tom Savage remains the starter, but Watson looks like he will make a strong push for the job before Week 1.

Tom Savage has remained the No. 1 quarterback in Texans practice. Deshaun Watson has been getting some first-team reps, but Savage has maintained a practice lead. Watson out-played Savage in last week's preseason opener, but was running with the backups against backups. Watson will get a stiff Week 2 preseason test in the Patriots.

Deshaun Watson completed 15-of-25 passes for 179 yards and rushed three times for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' preseason opener. Watson’s mobility adds a dimension statuesque Tom Savage simply doesn’t bring to the table, and the rookie made his best plays Wednesday night with his legs. His highlight was a fleet-footed 15-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. As a passer, Watson mostly worked between the numbers on high-percentage throws. While not an overly gifted arm talent, Watson checks boxes for playmaking ability and poise. It’s only a matter of time before the Texans determine Savage isn’t their best option.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Deshaun Watson is "ahead of any rookie quarterback I've ever been around." In June, O'Brien said Watson was "not nearly where he needs to be" to start, but his tune has changed in the last week. In addition to this comment, the coach has said Watson is "ahead of schedule" in his development. The Texans likely still want to take it slow with their rookie quarterback, but they are at least laying the groundwork for him to jump Tom Savage before Week 1.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said first-round QB Deshaun Watson is "ahead of schedule" in his development. A month ago O'Brien said the rookie wasn't "nearly where he needs to be to be a full-time starter." Apparently Watson took that criticism to heart. He's been on a tear since came opened a few days ago, reminding Houston Chronicle beat writer John McClain of a young Warren Moon. Slowly but surely, the Clemson alum is winning O'Brien over. "There’s no doubt he’s ahead of schedule," said O'Brien. "He’s put a lot of time in, and he’s doing a good job." Watson still has ground to make up on projected starter Tom Savage, but he's closing the gap quicker than anyone expected.
