The Houston Texans have a 3-2 record right now and they’re coming off a 53-32 thrashing of the Atlanta Falcons. In that game Deshaun Watson was able to throw for 5 touchdowns and he looked like the same player who led the Clemson Tigers to a national championship in 2017. You also have to remember that Watson tore his ACL during his rookie season and he wasn’t up to speed last year.
But now the superstar quarterback has thrown for 11 touchdowns, only 1 interception, and a quarterback rating of 115.9. Which puts him up there with some of the best in the league and if the Texans can heat up Watson will definitely be in the conversation for MVP. One of the biggest reasons why is because of how well Will Fuller and Watson play together. It seems like every year those two are on the same page but Fuller usually gets hurt. If Fuller can stay healthy and be on the field for all sixteen games then Watson’s numbers will be off the charts. At the moment that’s the way things seem to be heading and it feels like this is a playoff team. They finally got Watson the help he needed by bringing in Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills when they traded away two of their first round picks. Bill O’Brien wanted to put as many weapons as possible around Watson so they could get the most out of him. Which is why this offense is capable of scoring so many points.
