Secondary grades well, Tom Savage tanks in Texans' PFF scores vs. Rams

Tom Savage doubled as a turnover waterfall in a 33-7 loss to Los Angeles, spitting out a pair of interceptions and losing two fumbles for a spiraling Texans offense. The Rams are off to their best start since 2001, when they went 8-1 in St. Louis. Selected with the 21st-overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Fuller played in 14 games as a rookie and accounted for 47 catches, 635 receiving yards and two touchdown receptions. He has now 4 touchdown over his past two games, and has already set a career high in yardage this season.

Unfortunately, the Texans' defense couldn't do enough to contain a very explosive Rams' offense.

"I haven't done a good job coaching this team this year and that was my message to the team", O'Brien said.

Houston had the chance for more points late in the first half, but Mark Barron made an interception at the Los Angeles 10.

"It's on the quarterback when we put up seven points", Savage said, per ESPN. "I was seeing everything clear".

It took the Rams just one play to capitalize on the takeaway when Goff hit Woods on a screen pass behind the line of scrimmage. "We were focused on details and I think that's why we were able to click and those plays finally were happening". It was also the Rams' longest pass play since 1964 - including the entire Greatest Show on Turf era in St. Louis, when Kurt Warner and Isaac Bruce led a peerless passing offense.

On 2nd-and-8 from the L.A. six-yard line, quarterback Jared Goff came off of play action, dropped back, and delivered a attractive deep ball to Woods - hitting him in stride on a post route. The sure-footed veteran has missed just one field goal all season.

The Texans will try to regroup next Sunday when they host the Arizona Cardinals.

Rams: A trip to Minnesota for an early game next Sunday against former QB Case Keenum and the Vikings.
