2. Deshaun Watson is clutch in big moments
Is Deshaun Watson becoming the new “Captain Comeback?” The Houston Texans trailed at halftime and didn’t play well overall in the first half, and the team managed to come back and win the game.
A big reason for that comeback win was the play in the second half by Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. Watson made some big-time throws in the fourth quarter, and the aforementioned touchdown reception by Jordan Akins that went for 53 yards was made possible by Watson.
On that play, Watson broke away from two near sacks, got a good view and passed the ball to a wide-open Akins for the touchdown. Three times this season in the first three games, Watson has led his team to a lead — and two eventual wins — in the fourth quarter by making plays with his athleticism and decision-making while under the most pressure of the game.
Watson is making the Texans look smarter and smarter when the conversation comes to the quarterbacks drafted in 2017, as he was a part of a strong draft class at that position. Watson will only continue to improve his overall game, and Sunday was proof he’s one of the top quarterbacks in the entire NFL.
