Osweiler gets limited snaps
The entirety of the Texans nation wanted to see Brock Osweiler this past weekend but with the majority of the Texans’ offensive line missing, Coach Bill O’Brien wisely pulled him after three series’. Osweiler went 4-7 for 27 yards in the 24-13 victory. Osweiler is still learning the playbook in place and pulling him early was a smart move as was running the ball, which they did effectively.
“Like he (Osweiler) said after the game, we kept it pretty close to the vest,” O’Brien said. “We ran the ball quite a bit. We threw some quick game. He had one fade ball to DeAndre that was close. The DB made a really good play on it.
“We came out with a fairly basic scheme, but you know what?” Osweiler said. “No matter what the scheme is, it is our job as players to go out there and execute that scheme and make plays. I’m not going to get into what we did call, what we didn’t call. Bottom line is coach puts in a game plan and it is our job as players to execute that to the best of our abilities.”
