Houston Texans’ rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson shows off his accuracy with a beautiful touchdown pass.
We’re quickly learning that Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson doesn’t let anything phase him.
Watson proved that early on during Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.
As you can see in the video below, Watson threw a frozen rope to wide receiver Bruce Ellington for a touchdown.
I wrote on Saturday that one player to watch in this game is Ellington, who is a serious deep threat.
With Will Fuller out, the Texans have a great replacement in Ellington, who can stretch an opposing defense without a problem.
As long as Watson gets the ball out quickly, he should be able to move the ball down the field.
Watson throws an interception.
Unfortunately Watson threw an interception to Patriots’ cornerback Stephon Gilmore during his next drive.
Mike Reiss of ESPN posted a very interesting stat on Twitter.
The Texans are doing enough to hang around. Watson is moving around and making things happen with his mobility.
Texans’ running back Lamar Miller has 22 yards on four carries. If he can keep that up it will help open things up for Watson through the air.
I would say Watson had a good first half as he led the Texans on a touchdown drive and two drives that led to field goals.
Watson has completed nine of 13 passes for one touchdown and one interception. I’ll take that any day.
