Texans not out of playoff hunt just yet

In a weak AFC wild-card race, Houston's playoff odds rank eighth in the conference, by FPI's measure. That said, the two teams currently holding wild-card spots (the Titans and Ravens) each have odds over 70 percent.

Power Rankings: Texans move to No. 19

This season was trending toward a triumph with Deshaun Watson at the helm, but his replacement, Tom Savage, has thrown four TDs all season. Still, the Texans are in the hunt, so all is not lost.

Grading the quarterback play for the Texans

Tom Savage won the job, lost the job and now has it for the foreseeable future with Deshaun Watson sidelined. He'll need to cut down on turnovers for the rest of the season to have any promise.

Bill O'Brien said he is unsure if WR Will Fuller will be ready to play on Monday against the Ravens. Fuller injured his ribs in Week 10 against the Rams and did not play on Sunday.

Savage shows improvement in win over Cardinals (0:44)

Fade route to DeAndre Hopkins for the TD. The Texans WR beat CB Patrick Peterson and separated to the ball on the throw from Tom Savage. That gives Hopkins 76 yards receiving on four receptions.

Former Texans WR Andre Johnson is the first member of the team's Ring of Honor. Johnson is the team's franchise leader in catches, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.

Tom Savage has had an up-and-down first half, going 10-of-15 for 94 yards with a touchdown, and interception and fumble. The Cardinals scored a touchdown after each turnover (after starting the drives at the Houston 17 and 15) and lead 14-10 at halftime. Savage said last week his focus is not turning the ball over after he committed four turnovers against the Rams in Week 10.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

Last week, Texans QB Tom Savage talked about how he could not turn over the ball after he had four against the Rams. On the Texans' third drive, Savage was sacked and fumbled the ball. Arizona scored a touchdown two plays later.

The Texans celebrated Lamar Miller's 7-yard touchdown catch with a relay race. Miller — who ran the 4x100 relay at Miami — lined up before handing off to DeAndre Hopkins. He handed off to Braxton Miller and Bruce Ellington finished the race.
