Twitter’s reaction to Deshaun Watson’s performance against the Patriots
It’s apparent that Houston Texans’ rookie Deshaun Watson has impressed the world of Twitter.
There’s no doubt that Houston Texans’ rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson was impressive against the New England Patriots this past Sunday after throwing for 301 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions as he completed 22 of 33 pass attempts.
Watson has only played two and a half NFL games, but the world of Twitter is sold on him as an NFL quarterback.
Former NFL scout and current NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah posted a video on Tuesday giving his take on Watson’s latest game.
Now, you can make the argument that the Patriots’ defense isn’t as good this season as they have been in recent years, but Watson’s poise in the pocket is what allows him to play so well as a rookie.
Another thing that helps Watson is the fact that he has a very reliable No. 1 wide receiver in DeAndre Hopkins. Who has been proving why he just received a lucrative contract extension just a few weeks ago.

Hopkins has caught seven passes in each of the Texans’ three games this season. He totaled 55 yards in week one, 73 yards in week two and 77 yards in week three. See a pattern? I do. He’s getting better each week as Watson gains more experience.
As Watson continues to get more comfortable week by week, I can only see Hopkins’ production going up as well.
It also doesn’t hurt that Watson has talented players like Will Fuller and Bruce Ellington to help him out. And Fuller will be making his 2017 debut very soon.
