Backup QB’s Save The Day, Texans Holding Watson Till After Deadline, Astros Stay Alive


The big story from the NFL weekend was the successful play of a few backup quarterbacks. In his first career start, Mike White led the NY Jets with 405 yards, 3 touchdowns (and 2 interceptions) to a big 34-31 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Trevor Siemian took over for an injured Jameis Winston to lead the New Orleans Saints to a 36-27 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while Geno Smith (who has been taking over for Russell Wilson) led the Seattle Seahawks to a lopsided 31-7 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. And, Cooper Rush, in his first NFL start as a fifth-year backup, led the Dallas Cowboys past the Minnesota Vikings 20-16.

In other NFL news, the Houston Texans are reportedly prepared to hold on to quarterback Deshaun Watson until after the NFL trade deadline. According to ESPN, the team is ready to talk trade options but don’t want to until the offseason where they feel they can get a better deal.


The Houston Astros took game 5 against the Atlant Braves to stay alive in the World Series. Atlanta, who is up 3-2, is just one win away from the Championship. Game 6 is Tuesday in Houston.
