Pro Football Focus Grades Texans In Win Over Cardinals

Pro Football Focus Grades Texans In Win Over Cardinals

Pro Football Focus has inside information on how individual Houston players performed in the slaying of Arizona. I agree with all of this. Also, I haven’t watched the game yet. Pro Football Focus takes the the emotion out of the game and spits out cold, hard, numbers based off the subjective. Here are the grades from yesterday’s game between the Texans and Cardinals. First, the offense. —Quarterback Tom Savage was solid in this game as he put forth his best game grade-wise of his career, posting a 78.6 overall grade for the day. Savage victimized the Cardinals when he wasn't...

Hair of the Dog (Cardinals/Texans): Mad Dogs and Texans

The BRB gang get together to talk about Sunday’s win against the Arizona Cardinals. I’m not going to lie to y’all, yesterday could’ve gone a lot better and a lot worse than it did. On one hand, it’s good to get the win and finally staunch the bleeding a little bit. It’s good that the Texans scored over 30 points on offense, which we haven’t seen since...since (sniff, sniff, snort) Deshaun was under center; and I was floored that Tom Savage was capable of leading an offense to that many points. And Andre Johnson was added as the first name to the Texans’ new ring of honor...

Post-Game Recap/Final Score: Texans 31, Cardinals 21

Post-Game Recap/Final Score: Texans 31, Cardinals 21

It was a nice day in Austin today, mid-60s for highs, sunny, and a bit of wind. Of course, I ruined it by watching the Texans play. Your Houston Texans beat the Arizona Cardinals 31-21 in a surprising display of offense from both teams. Tom Savage had easily the best game of his career, putting up a 22/32 230 2TD 1INT stat line. Of course, he managed to throw in a Savage Stripped Sack for good measure, a play he’s turned into outsider art. Chunk play TDs, a rarity during Savage’s reign of error, helped: DeAndre Hopkins brought in a 28 yard TD pass and D’Onta Foreman’s 34 yard...

Because how can you miss the opportunity to watch Blaine Gabbert square off against Tom Savage? I won’t pretend tomorrow’s game between the Texans and Cardinals will be pretty. It almost surely won’t. That’s the natural order of things when the two starting quarterbacks are Blaine Gabbert and Tom Savage.

Pre-Game Recon: Arizona Cardinals

Five questions with the Revenge of the Birds sister sight and Seth Cox Q1: Carson Palmer is done for the season, Drew Stanton injured his knee, and Blain Gabbert may be starting at QB against the Texans. What is the current state of the Cardinal’s offense and how has the offense changed since Palmer’s injury? The offensive scheme hasn’t changed, I think even if we get the vaunted Blaine Gabbert versus Tom Savage game that we are all scared to death of this weekend, I think the Cardinals schemes will be the same. The only difference is the rhythm of the game. Bruce Arians likes to...
