After reviewing the film from the Houston Texans' preseason opener,Womens Derek Carr Jersey, coach Bill O'Brien said he was impressed by the poise that rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson showed in his NFL debut.

"Something that's impressed me from really the time that I met him is really his overall poise," O'Brien said. "He's a very poised guy. He plays the game in a calm way. Obviously, I'm sure he was slightly nervous, nothing's too big for him. He's been in big games. For his first NFL game, but it didn't show."

In Wednesday night's 27-17 preseason loss to the Carolina Panthers, Watson was 15-of-25 passing for 179 yards. He also had three carries for 24 yards and a rushing touchdown.

O'Brien noted that Watson was correct about the Texans' offensive scheme about half the time, which he said is "to be expected with a rookie." The head coach has previously said the toughest part for Watson in his transition from college to the NFL will be learning the Texans' complex playbook and becoming familiar with the scheme.

"There's a lot to build on, there's a lot to correct. He knows that. I'd say he was about 50-50 on some of the schemes we run," O'Brien said. "I mean, right or wrong. He was right 50 percent of the time. He was wrong 50 percent of the time. And that's to be expected with a rookie. But I think his overall poise and demeanor and the way he sees the game has always been something that's pretty impressive to me."

Watson played for more than two quarters of the preseason game; Tom Savage got the start and played just the first three series for Houston. The fourth-year quarterback struggled to move the ball on the first two drives, leading the offense down the field on a 13-play, going 1-for-3 for 2 yards. He turned it around on the third drive, 75-yard drive that ended with a 16-yard touchdown run from running back Alfred Blue.

Savage finished his night 9-of-11 passing for 69 yards. O'Brien praised the job his starter did to recover from the slow start.

"I thought Tom played the game pretty resiliently, last night,Authentic Bo Jackson Jersey, too," O'Brien said. "He came back from a couple tough series as an offense and was able on the third series to lead us to a touchdown."

Savage continues to be the Texans' starter entering Week 3 of training camp,Authentic Howie Long Jersey, and will likely start the season in that same position, too.

"I thought both of those guys had their moments where they were really playing well,Authentic Khalil Mack Jersey, it was typical first preseason game. There was some good," O'Brien said. "To me,Authentic Derek Carr Jersey, some not so good. A lot to build on."

Watson shines in loss

Deshaun Watson reminded everyone why Panthers coach Ron Rivera — and many others — felt he should have won the Heisman Trophy last season.

Watson shined in his NFL preseason debut, completing 15 of 25 passes for 179 yards and running for a score in the Houston Texans' 27-17 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Wednesday night.

Watson,Womens Amari Cooper Jersey, who led Clemson to the ACC championship on this field last December en route to winning the national championship, received a rousing ovation from Tigers fans dressed in orange when he entered the game in the second quarter.

The cheers grew louder when Watson outran two defenders for a 15-yard touchdown — although Panthers fans tried to cover the celebration with boos.

"It was good just to get my feet wet," said Watson, who was pleased with his overall effort.

Houston's first-round draft pick looked comfortable in the pocket, stepping up to avoid pressure and getting rid of the football in a timely manner. He didn't let penalties on his team affect him and didn't turn the ball over in nearly three quarters of play.

"He's a smart player, an instinctive player," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said.

"For the first game out there I thought he did some good things. That's a big jump from college to the NFL and I thought he handled it pretty well."

Tom Savage went three-and-out on his first two possessions against Carolina's first-team defense. Savage had better luck with Carolina's starters out of the game, completing 8 of 8 passes for 67 yards on his final drive capped by a 16-yard TD run by Alfred Blue.

But it was a strong showing for Carolina's defensive starters.

"We put ourselves in good third down situations and we were able to execute and get off the field, the first half," Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis said. "Overall, the ones definitely had a good showing."

Panthers veteran backup Derek Anderson looked sharp starting in place of Cam Newton, who's still resting a sore right shoulder.

Anderson completed 4 of 5 passes for 76 yards, including a 23-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin to finish with a perfect 158.3 QB rating.

The 6-foot-5 Benjamin, who reported to training camp in good shape after being overweight in the spring,Womens Bo Jackson Jersey, made a leaping grab in the corner of the end zone to give Carolina the early 7-0 lead.

"I am feeling good again," Benjamin said. "I am ready to get Cam (Newton) back out there so we can rebuild that chemistry."

WATT,Womens Howie Long  Jersey, KUECHLY RETURN: Two former NFL Defensive Players of the Year returned to action after missing significant time last season with injuries.

J.J. Watt played one series for the Texans in his return from back surgery. Kuechly played six plays after returning from his second career concussion. Neither registered a tackle.

SITTING OUT: Along with Newton, veteran defensive ends Julius Peppers and Charles Johnson,Authentic Amari Cooper Jersey, center Ryan Kalil and rookie wide receiver Curtis Samuel did not suit up for Carolina.

Texans: Rookie linebacker Dylan Cole appeared to return a fumble for a touchdown to tie the game in the fourth quarter, Womens Khalil Mack Jersey,but the play was overturned.

Panthers: Christian McCaffrey had 33 yards on seven carries in his rookie debut and showed impressive quickness and the ability to make defenders miss.
