Much of the focus of the Texans' crucial contest centered on Savage, who threw for 252 yards on 22 completed passes and 37 attempts. Savage, though, turned over the ball three times, including two fourth-quarter giveaways.
Savage did more eyebrow-raising when he walked in, paused, and walked out on a postgame news conference. Only one reporter showed up.
Savage eventually talked to reporters at his locker.

DeAndre Hopkins had seven catches on 10 targets for 125 yards. Lamar Miller rushed for 51 yards on 17 carries and the team's lone touchdown, which came in the first quarter.
The Texans (4-7) dropped their fourth contest in the last five games, a slump indicative by the turning fortune of Deshaun Watson's season-ending injury.
As demoralizing as the defeat was for the Texans, the team is still not eliminated from playoff contention. Still, a lot of other scenarios have to be realized to get them in the postseason. The team is two games back from a wild card playoff spot.
The Texans travel to Nashville this coming Sunday to take on AFC South co-leader Tennessee Titans.
