Savage left the field before the end of the quarter to be assessed and evaluated in the locker room.

Cornerback Dontae Johnson, who started the first 13 games of the season, was benched in the third after and after struggling mightily in coverage against Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. The Texans punted on the following play.
