Houston Texans: 3 Reasons why they can 3-peat in the AFC South
1. Deshaun Watson is a MVP candidate in 2020
Everyone who knows anything about the NFL knows quality quarterback play is the base of a solid offense, and the Houston Texans are lucky enough to have one of the very best at the position, that being Deshaun Watson.
The Houston Texans offense will go as far as Watson can lead them, but not all of the pressure needs to be on his shoulders either, though the spotlight will be heavily on him in his first season without DeAndre Hopkins as his top wide receiver.
Watson has been on Twitter and social media a lot this offseason and has been seen putting in the work an MVP candidate has to put in to achieve that type of success. With the Texans’ offensive line being better than it has been in the past, Watson’s game has no choice to improve along with their progress.
This season, Watson has the best duo of running backs he’s had on the offense since joining the franchise with David Johnson and Duke Johnson being dual threats, and the wide receivers — though not as much of a force as Hopkins — are quality players who can get the job done.
There are aspects of his game that Deshaun Watson will need to improve upon in 2020 — one being feeling pressure and getting rid of the football a little quicker — but overall, the opportunity is in front of Watson to be an MVP quarterback.
This season should be fun to watch in his quest to do so, leading the Texans to success they have yet to achieve as a franchise.
