The Houston Texans completed a miraculous task for this franchise, achieving something they usually fail to accomplish—beating the New England Patriots. They did so thanks to one man and one man alone, their starting quarterback, Deshaun Watson, the quaternity, the sun at the center of the franchise, the entirety of our football team. In this win over New England, Watson completed 28 of his 37 attempts for 344 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also ran the ball 6 times for 36 yards. The Houston Texans had 399 total yards. Watson had 380 of them, he accounting for 95% of the Texans’ offensive production.

Watson was justifiably rewarded by the NFL. He was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. This is the fifth time he’s been awarded this honor in his career.

Watson will look to carry the entire team once again tomorrow, when the Texans play the Lions on Turkey Day.
