The NFL isn’t too big for Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson.

The biggest thing you worry about with a rookie quarterback is whether or not the NFL is too big for him.

When it comes to Houston Texans’ rookie Deshaun Watson, that’s not the case.

It looked like Watson was only looking DeAndre Hopkins’ way last week, but he says it was what the defense was giving him. Hopefully they both can continue to connect on a consistent basis going forward.

Watson knows that his ability to run the football is a huge help. Especially since the Texans’ offensive line can’t pass protect.

The New England Patriots will be a big test for Watson this Sunday, but he’s used to playing against great talent after facing off against teams like Florida State in college. Not to mention that he went up against Alabama two years in a row for the National Championship and ended up leading his team to a title during their second showdown with the Crimson Tide.

The Patriots are great on offense, but it’s apparent that they’re defense might be vulnerable this season.

If the Texans can establish a running game with Lamar Miller and D’Onta Foreman, the passing game will open up for Watson and his receivers.

I’m sure Patriots’ defensive coordinator Matt Patricia and head coach Bill Belichick will do their best to rattle Watson.  He seems up to the task at hand.
