JJ Watt suffered dislocated finger against Jaguars

Monday, 11 Sep, 2017

As such, the season opener for Watt's Texans against the Jacksonville Jaguars was portrayed to be a bonding outlet for the region, much in the same way the Saints 23-3 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on September 25, 2006, provided a lift for the city of New Orleans in the team's first home game at the Superdome since Hurricane Katrina. Sure his Jaguars blew out the Houston Texans in an impressive manner on Sunday, but Robinson was not a part of it.

"It's such a big deal to everybody else, but it's just football", Robinson told reporters on Wednesday. With Watt, I expect the yards allowed to go down in numbers. "And for us to do that, everybody has to do their assignment, play fast and just put on a show". He joked about being so busy getting ready for the game that he hadn't yet reached out to Jimmy Fallon to thank him for the $1 million he donated to Watt's fund on Tuesday night.

Media reports indicated that the Jaguars feared that Robinson tore his ACL, which would knock the receiver out for the rest of the season. They tried to rectify that by adding veteran defensive end Calais Campbell, who was a stalwart run-stopper and pass rusher for the Cardinals for years. "I'm just playing football, man".

The best thing that Bortles did Sunday was to avoid turnovers.

Jacksonville (3-13 in 2016) endured yet another losing season - they haven't had a winning season since 2007.

Before they play the Jaguars, an AFC South rival affected by Hurricane Irma that's hitting Florida this weekend, the Texans are planning an elaborate pregame ceremony.

Equally as impressive was a complementary performance by a Jaguars offense coming off a awful preseason. Coach Doug Marrone and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett did a good job keeping him out of bad situations. He's come in here and worked hard. "They have outstanding players, and I haven't seen a defense like this in a long time in this league that has such outstanding players".

O'Brien has been adamant the entire offseason that Savage would be the Houston starter in 2017 even though the Texans traded their 2018 first round pick to Cleveland for the opportunity to draft Watson 12th overall back in April.

My fellow contributor Brian Patterson and I were chatting the other day, we both agree that Nick Martin has the chance to be a perennial pro bowl level center.
