Former Pitt quarterback Tom Savage had a tough weekend in Houston, as he started under center for the Texans and faced an onslaught from the Jacksonville Jaguars in a 29-7 beatdown.
Savage absorbed six sacks in one half of football, fumbling twice as a result. He lost both fumbles, and one of them was returned 53 yards by Dante Fowler Jr. for a touchdown. That put the Jaguars up 19-0 heading into halftime in an AFC South game that got ugly fast for the Texans.
The NRG Stadium crowd could be heard booing Savage throughout the first half, notably after he was sacked by Calais Campbell and after Fowler’s touchdown. He was benched at halftime, and the crowd cheered as rookie Deshaun Watson took the field in his place.
When all was said and done, Savage could only muster 62 yards behind a porous Texans offensive line missing Duane Brown.
