Texans vs. Cowboys: 3 Bold Predictions for Sunday Night Football
1. Watson will double passing yards of Prescott
Here is another bold prediction for Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson for Sunday Night Football in comparison of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott: Watson will pass for over his career-high 402 passing yards and Prescott will have 200 or less yards through the air.
Watson will have high passing yardage because of the fact starting running back Lamar Miller might not be playing in this rivalry game. For the Texans to win this game Watson must pass the ball to his best players — DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Keke Coutee — but also the defense of the Texans must slow down the Cowboys passing game and force the Cowboys to beat them with their tough rushing attack.
This season Watson has three straight games of over 300 yards passing, including two straight games of 375 or more yards passing. Also in the past three games Watson has had identical numbers of two touchdowns and one interception in each of the past three games.
Being this is only the 12th game played in the NFL for Watson he’s still a very young player, but don’t be surprised to see him gain 400 yards passing and prove to many he’s fully recovered from his ACL injury and he still has the abilities to be a star in the league.
