Deshaun Watson on record-setting day: It could have been even better

Deshaun Watson had a day.

The Texans quarterback became only the third quarterback since 1950 to post at least 400 passing yards, five passing touchdowns and a 158.3 passer rating.

So what did he think about joining Nick Foles (2013) and Jared Goff (2018) in accomplishing that feat?

“It’s pretty cool,” Watson said. “Just try to get better each and every week, try to build on that and try to do it consistently. The great ones can do those things consistently, and that’s where we are. We left a lot of plays on the field. Missed a couple touchdowns with Will [Fuller], so it could have even been better. So there’s always room to improve but, yeah, that stat is pretty crazy.”

After last week’s loss to Carolina, Watson returned to the field at NRG Stadium to work with quarterbacks coach Quincy Avery.

On Sunday, he celebrated with agent David Mulugheta and Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who was in Houston getting a second opinion on his back.

But Watson vowed to return to work Sunday night, going over the film with Avery after an almost perfect performance.

Watson completed 28 of 33 passes for 426 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions.

  1. Cool story. Except according to this site Foles and Goff aren’t franchise QB’s…. Yet Watson is being fitted for a HOF jacket for matching, not bettering. Those two…..

  2. Watson has already passed for over 400 yards, 5 Tds, and 0 INTs three times. Brees has done it seven times.
    Today Watson’s TDs equaled his incompletions. He is the only one in history to have 5 incompletions with 5 TDs and over 400 yards. He also ran for 47 yards.

  3. Tribisky does not have those numbers in 3 games…..Mitchell sucks and the Bears will never have a decent QB. Mahomes and Watson franchise QB’s…..Tribisy is a bust!!!!

  4. Kelce is a good TE but he is also a big baby. If the “Chefs” aren’t winning he gets hostile towards teammates and coaches. He took 2 or 3 penaties a couple years ago against the Steelers in a playoff game.. not smart, and that has to get old for Chiefs fans.

  5. Roethlisberger had back to back 500 yard games with 6 passing TDs per games against the Colts and Ravens a couple years back. Just sayin’..
