Los Angeles Rams 21, Houston Texans 20 Analyst Takeaways There wasn’t much to see of second-year quarterback Deshaun Watson, but the good news is he moved around freely and did look healthy.
Today, the offensive line looked shaky from the get-go, with the backups struggling even more as the game progressed.
Running back Lavon Coleman isn’t a name on the radar of many, but he was impressive when given opportunities, showing some sharps cuts and an ability to drag tacklers with him.
The Texans will be pleased with the short work that J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney put in with their first-string defense.
Watt showed flashes of his old self, shedding blocks with ease.
Clowney added a batted pass that should have led to an interception.
He also set up a couple of conversions on the Rams’ long third-quarter drive with strong throws to out-breaking routes to keep the Rams’ backup offense on the field.
Los Angeles: Once the Texans’ starting defense left the field, the Rams’ backup offensive line took control.
