Houston Texans: Deshaun Watson leads way for win No. 2 of 2020
The Houston Texans gained the season sweep against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
It was another solid performance by Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and this time it led his team to their second win of the 2020 as the Texans defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars, gaining the season sweep, winning by a 27-25 score.
If only the Houston Texans could play the Jaguars each week because this season the only two wins by the Texans have been against Jacksonville. On Sunday it was the play by Deshaun Watson that was a big reason for the win by the Texans.
The Texans overcame some not so great secondary play, and a an injury on defense with the Texans doing enough to keep the win. On offense, like usual, Watson was fun to watch, and there were some big plays to be had.
The first touchdown by Watson was the incredible 57-yard touchdown reception by Brandin Cooks that saw him out run the defense of the Jaguars following a nice throw by Watson on the first drive of the game for Houston.
In the second quarter there was the play that saw Watson take a big hit, flip in the air and keep the drive alive that eventually turned into a touchdown run by Duke Johnson. Though the Texans are most likely out of the playoff hunt, a win is a win when they have only one entering Week 9.
There are plenty issues with this defense that won’t be fixed this season, so for at least on this Sunday it is alright to just enjoy this victory, and then on Monday breakdown all that is wrong with the defense.
Houston Texans: Let’s celebrate Deshaun Watson’s performance
When talking big plays by Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans on Sunday, the biggest play was a 77-yard play from Watson to Will Fuller, as you can say they “beat the play clock” and scored the touchdown.
Watson finished 19-of-32 for 281 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He was also the leading rusher for the Texans with 10 rushes for 50 yards. Speaking of Fuller, he led the Houston Texans with five receptions on five targets for 100 yards and the touchdown. Cooks was next at three receptions on nine targets for 83 yards and the touchdown.
Also celebrate the 100th career sack achievement by J.J. Watt as his sack on Sunday got him to the special milestone. Also on defense Zach Cunningham had a sack too. Vernon Hargreaves grabbed an interception and had a pass defensed, while Cunningham and Carlos Watkins also had a pass defensed.
The late touchdown given up by the defense was tough to watch, and like stated earlier, the problems the Houston Texans are having on defense will need an entire offseason of smart football decisions made to fix the issues at hand.
As for Sunday, enjoy the positive, celebrate Deshaun Watson and feel grateful he’s going to the the quarterback of the Houston Texans for the foreseeable future, as Week 10 will be a tougher with the Cleveland Browns next on the schedule.
