The Houston Texans have had an odd 2016 season, to say the very least.
With an 8-6 record, the Texans currently find themselves at the top of the AFC South - but all the credit for that has to go to Bill O'Brien's defense which has pulled up trees through week 15 of the season.
Quarterback Brock Osweiler has failed to impress at all in his first year in Houston and was benched earlier today against the Jaguars. Texans fans have been so disappointed in Osweiler that they were delighted with the move!

Following two more Osweiler interceptions, and seeing themselves 13-0 down to the Jags, Houston pulled its “franchise” quarterback that they paid $72 million in the offseason. Texans fans at the game went nuts for the move...
...And so did a lot of people on social media as well.
What makes this all the more better is that Tom Savage came in and was near perfect leading the Houston offense.
The former Pitt quarterback didn't throw a single interception and looked incredibly comfortable as he led the Texans to a 21-20 comeback win, finishing the game 23-of-36 for 260 yards.
If Savage keeps the starting role - which he almost certainly deserves to after that showing - then the Texans front office will have a lot of explaining to do about a $72million mistake sitting on their bench.
