Houston Texans: 3 must-watch players vs. Redskins
1. Deshaun Watson
Granted, Deshaun Watson is a must-watch player every week, but he has been overcoming some nagging injures at times this season. Now it will be exciting and intriguing to see where Watson is following a week of not getting hit after having nine straight weeks of action.
Also as mentioned earlier with Demaryius Thomas, all of us should be watching to see where Watson is with Thomas in what will be just their second game together as teammates. Not only with Thomas, but also watch for what Watson and DeAndre Hopkins are able to do next too.
Sometimes it is easy to take for granted just how good Hopkins is for Watson and the Texans. Following a week of rest for Watson, it is going to be exciting to see how the duo of Watson-to-Hopkins will play as they are both sure to be healthier after the bye week.
Also remember, if the offensive line can keep the tough Redskins defensive line away from he quarterback, Watson and company are facing a Washington defense that did allow over 500 yards of offense to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 10.
Watson has a good opportunity in front of him for this Sunday’s game against the Redskins, and if he’s able to take advantage of a Washington team that has allowed passing yardage the is above the norm he’ll be a player that will become an exciting must-watch player for Week 11.
If that occurs, the Texans will be gaining their seventh consecutive win of the year, staying in first place in the AFC South along the way.
