Was it the DeShaun Watson coming out party of 2018 for the Houston Texans on Thursday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins? It sure felt that way. Watson led the Texans to their fifth straight victory of the season, 42-23 over the Miami Dolphins.
In this one, Watson displayed the brilliance the Texans have been waiting to see all season after losing him to a torn ACL in his rookie year last year. Watson had five touchdown passes, while throwing for 238 yards, and had a QBR of 98.9 and rating of 156.0.
One of Watson’s touchdown passes was a 73-yard score to Will Fuller, which was the longest touchdown pass of his career. Watson also moved into second place in NFL history all-time on the career scoring passes list after 15 career games with 34.
It seems like Watson is back to his old self, which could spell trouble for the rest of the NFL.
