Texans Have No Plans To Bench Brock Osweiler For Tom Savage

Texans HC Bill O’Brien told reporters after Sunday’s loss to the Chargers that he will not bench QB Brock Osweiler in favor of backup Tom Savage, despite another poor outing from Osweiler.

“No,” O’Brien said when asked about starting Savage, via Sarah Barshop of ESPN. “We’re going to come in here tomorrow, we’re going to correct mistakes, and move on to Green Bay.

For his part, Osweiler admitted that he wasn’t very good and need to play better if they’re going to win games.

“I didn’t play very good today,” Osweiler said. “I feel like I left a lot out there on the field, that I could have done much better. I could have done a much better job in certain situations.

“I really felt like those guys went out there and truly battled and played great football, and bottom line I need to play better for us to win. I feel like our team gave us the opportunity to win today and I didn’t play up to what I’m capable of doing, and that’s on me and I’ll get that cleaned up.”

Osweiler, 25, is a former second-round pick of the Broncos back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract before signing a four-year, $72 million contract that includes $37 million guaranteed with the Texans back in March.

Entering today’s game, Osweiler has thrown for 2,061 yards while completing 59.5 percent of his passes to go along with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 31 quarterback out of 35 qualifying players.

We’ll have more regarding Osweiler and the Texans as the news is available.
