Houston Texans v Carolina Panthers

While the Panthers will play four preseason games, the goal for Carolina is to have the 2015 NFL MVP ready to play when the regular season kicks off on September 10 against the San Francisco 49ers.

A look back at each of Watson's snaps shows exactly what one would expect from a rookie in terms of errors.

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

While Houston lost the game 27-17, those who came to see Watson did not leave disappointed. JJ has won the award three times in the last five seasons and is one of only two three-time as well as back-to-back winners - the other being Hall of Famer New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor.

It was "a typical first preseason game", according to head coach Bill O'Brien. It's the same thing I saw against Alabama. "But I think his overall poise and demeanor and the way that he sees the game has always been something that's pretty impressive to me", O'Brien said.

The first team defense opened up on fire, putting Tom Savage on the ground twice in the first three plays and stopping a run for a loss. It doesn't matter the box score says Savage was the more efficient Texans QB in his short stint (9-of-11 passing, 69 yards, 92.8 rating).

Newton, who had surgery in March to fix a partially torn rotator cuff, hasn't thrown in practice for nine days, so the Panthers holding him out of Wednesday's game was expected.

Sling TV could also be a good solution to watch Texans vs. Panthers online without cable. I mean, there's a lot to correct. The team got off to a fast start with their first teams on the field, minus a few key starters like Cam Newton and Julius Peppers.

The Houston Texans will go only as far as their quarterback takes them. Try to play a clean game the first time out.

Neither player registered a tackle.

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

"We've been working on it all camp, just trying to give him chances with balls up high enough where he can go make plays", Anderson continued. To this point, the closest things the Texans have in team history to Watson's 15-yard touchdown scamper are this. Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins are the team's top receivers, while Lamar Miller will handle RB duties along with Alfred Blue. He also demonstrated that if a nickel package is thrown at him he'll blow through it like tissue paper which resulted in his 15-yard run for the touchdown with 56 seconds left in the third quarter. With it, you can stream Texans vs. Panthers live when it airs.

The Texans' first-round pick was given eight series, with two of them resulting in points.

Texans: "I'm so happy to be back with my guys", Watt said of his return.
