Tom Savage solidifies starting job, leads Houston Texans over New England Patriots

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady throws against the Houston Texans during the first half of an NFL football preseason game Saturday Aug. 19 2017 in Houston

Gronkowski played in 15 of the first 17 Patriots offensive snaps before watching the rest of the game from the sidelines.

Watson ran four times for 10 yards against the defending Super Bowl champions.

Included was a goal line TD that proved to be the game victor for the Texans against the New England Patriots in a back-and-forth preseason game. But I think he's a good player, a good young player that I think if he continues to work hard, and learn, and pay attention in the meetings, and do all the things that we're asking him to do; Watch how Lamar prepares, watch how Alfred prepares, I mean I think he's learning a lot from those guys...

Prescott connected with Bryant for a 32-yard touchdown on their first series of the preseason, 2016 National Football League rushing champion Elliott sat again with his six-game suspension looming, and rookie Cooper Rush threw two scoring passes in the Cowboys' 24-19 exhibition win Saturday night. Garoppolo would sack the ball on the Pats' next possession, leading to a field goal for Houston to make it 20-16. Don't let that fool you into thinking that rookie running back D'Onta Foreman can't run. Roberts went down in pain and walked off under his own power but left moments later on a cart.

On special teams, Cyrus Jones again showed flashes with returns of 32, 12 and 10 yards.

The Patriots' first drive wasn't flawless, and resulted in a punt. This week, he outdid himself with the highlight reel play of the second half. Burkhead worked as the featured back with New England's first-team offense, while Lewis played with the Jimmy Garoppolo group for the second-straight week.

Houston when three and out on the next drive, but got the ball back quickly thanks to the interception by Rice. Garoppolo was 6-for-6 for 70 yards passing on the drive. He scrambled to his right and appeared to be throwing the ball away in the vicinity of Jacob Hollister.

The touchdown run came at the end of a 75-yard drive that saw running back D'Onta Foreman break tackles after a short pass from Watson on his way to 63 of them. If they double someone, everyone else is singled across the board, so you've just got to be careful who you double.
