Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson became a bulldozer in a TD run.
Is there anything Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson can’t do on a football field? Not only was Watson having a great day passing the football in the first half, but in the second quarter he had his best Earl Campbell impersonation with a touchdown run, his second of the season.
The play came on second-and-goal where Watson found his inner Earl Campbell — a Houston football legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer — and went four yards into the end zone by barreling his way through two defenders at the goal line.
Campbell in his career played seven seasons with the Houston Oilers and is known for the powerful style of football he played.
This was Watson’s second rushing score of the season, and the touchdown (plus PAT) put the Houston Texans ahead by a 14-10 score. Later in the second quarter Watson threw his second touchdown of the first half, as the Houston Texans led 21-10 at halftime.
If if were not for Deshaun Watson in the first half who knows if they would have any points at all in this game as Watson has been involved in all three first half touchdowns.
All-in-all the first half for the Texans and Watson went well, especially without left tackle Laremy Tunsil was who was ruled out for the game due to a non-COVID illness. Watson has shown how versatile of a player he is with his ability to pass the football, and not just run with the football, but run with a purpose.
That kind of play is fun to see on a team that has two wins entering Week 11, and shows Watson came to play no matter how dim the playoff hopes are for the Texans this 2020 season. This run also shows how great of a leader Deshaun Watson is, but we all already knew that.
