Texans rookie QB Tom Savage plays hero in win over Broncos

Rookie Tom Savage, trying to surge past Case Keenum and claim the Texans’ backup quarterback job, took a major step in that direction by rifling a 31-yard touchdown pass to second-year tight end Ryan Griffin

with 59 seconds left Saturday night, then found fellow rookie Travis Labhart for the two-point conversation as Houston beat the Broncos 18-17 in Denver.

Savage went 5-for-6 for 68 yards on what became the game-winning drive. He’d earlier connected with Labhart, who played at Texas A&M, on a third-and-4 for seven yards and a fourth-and-3 for 15 yards before hooking up with Griffin on an 8-yard completion that immediately preceded the touchdown. Savage needed less than 3½ minutes to take the Texans 74 yards to the end zone.
