Houston Texans’ wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins says that Deshaun Watson embraces being an NFL quarterback.

The most important thing for any NFL quarterback is not how well he can throw the football, but how well he deals with the pressure that’s on him to perform.

So far, Houston Texans’ rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson has shown that he can deal with the pressure since he doesn’t allow it to get to him.

Texans’ wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins says that Watson has “embraced” every game he’s played in, instead of being scared.

While talking to the media on Thursday, Hopkins was also asked about his chemistry with Watson.

Hopkins and Watson looked like they were on the same page last week after connecting multiple times during a drive that set up a field goal to help clinch a win on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals.

If the Texans and Watson are able to pull off a win on the road this coming Sunday, they would be making history. Not one rookie quarterback has defeated Patriots head coach Bill Belichick in New England.

James Palmer of NFL Media had another interesting stat with Watson being 18 years younger than Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

I would honestly be surprised if the Texans come away with a win. But if they manage to upset the defending Super Bowl champs, it won’t be because of Watson. It will be because of their strong defense along with some help from the offense.
