3. Watson won’t throw an interception
In his three years in the NFL as the starting quarterback for the Houston Texans, Deshaun Watson has never thrown multiple interceptions in a game for three straight weeks, and this week against the Oakland Raiders the QB1 won’t throw a single interception.
The past two weeks Watson has thrown two interceptions in both games, and this season the Raiders have three interceptions in six games played, and only two of those players are still on the roster.
Nicholas Marrow and Erik Harris lead the Raiders with one interception each, and the other player who has an interception in a Raiders uniform this season is Gareon Conley, who the Texans just traded for.
This week is the best week for the Texans to challenge a secondary, as it has been proven thus far this season the Raiders have trouble intercepting passes, plus there are too many talented wide receivers on the roster in Houston to not take chances.
Even if the Texans do take more chances, Watson still can go interception free, and that would not only be great for the stat sheet of Watson, but how great of a confidence boost for the offense would that be too as they work to get back into first place of the AFC South.
