After surviving subpar quarterback play to earn a playoff spot a year ago, the Texans handed Brock Osweiler $37 million guaranteed to be their franchise quarterback. They even gave him that deal before meeting with him! That’s how confident they felt about Osweiler, based on his limited appearances with the Broncos.
On Sunday, the Brock Osweiler era in Houston officially began. It did not get off to the sort of start that the Texans wanted. It began with an interception on his very first drive.
Yes, you just watched Bears cornerback Tracy Porter beat all-world receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the football. The year is 2016.
The Bears ended up marching down the field on an eight-play, 75-yard touchdown drive that featured Jay Cutler and Alshon Jeffery hooking up and was punctuated by a Jeremy Langford touchdown run.
