The Houston Texans and quarterback Deshaun Watson almost stole a road win.

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson put together an amazing performance on Sunday against the New England Patriots. He was only seconds away form giving head coach Bill Belichick his first ever loss to the rookie quarterback at home.

The Texans looked shaky during the first two weeks of the season. But they were able to put up 33 points against the Patriots.

Watson finished the game 301 yards through the air as he completed 22 of 33 passes with one touchdown and one interception.

The things that make Watson so special is his ability to move around, but also just how poised he is in the pocket. He didn’t allow of the magnitude of Sunday game to affect him.

Even though the Texans have arguably one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL, Watson stood in the pocket and delivered some great passes all afternoon long as he dealt with everything the Patriots and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia threw his way.

While I don’t expect Watson to lead the Texans to a Super Bowl title this season, the future is certainly bright for him and the organization.

While the Texans front seven looked good, the back end of their defense gave up 378 yards and five touchdowns through the air.

Houston defensive stars Whitney Mercilus and Jadeveon Clowney combined for three sacks.

Clowney also scooped up a fumble for a touchdown.

It wasn’t perfect, but the Texans did everything they could to come away with a win and unfortunately fell short after Brady threw a touchdown winning pass with only seconds remaining.
