10/15/17 - QB Deshaun Watson dissected another defense on Sunday with a precision belying his experience. Watson passed for 225 yards and three touchdowns, his ledger marred only by a 56-yard interception return for a score by Browns cornerback Jason McCourty in the fourth quarter. With 15 touchdown passes, Watson not only leads the entire league in that category, he has produced the most scoring strikes by a rookie through six games since the NFL/AFL merger.
"It's pretty cool. It's straight," Watson said of the accomplishments. "I should have had more (touchdowns). I missed some opportunities. But if you look at the big picture and see the things I'm doing, it goes all to the support cast I have around me and the people that push me.
"It's bigger than me. It's the support cast that's helping me do what I'm doing. I appreciate all of them."
Watson, who finished 17 of 29, completed scoring passes of 39 yards to Will Fuller V with 41 seconds left in the first quarter, 1 yard to Braxton Miller at the 3:04 mark of the second, and 3 yards to DeAndre Hopkins with 4:05 remaining in the third. Watson is the first rookie quarterback in NFL history to throw three-plus touchdowns over three consecutive games.
10/09/17 - QB Deshaun Watson set an NFL rookie record with 12 touchdown passes in his first five games.
10/01/17 - QB Deshaun Watson became the first rookie quarterback to throw four touchdowns and rush for another in a game since Fran Tarkenton in 1961.
He completed 25 of 34 attempts for 283 yards.
With a tantalizing mix of poise, accuracy, elusiveness and moxie, Watson showcased his wares while orchestrating an offensive attack that complemented another sterling defensive display. "It's cool to have it on our side because it's not a good feeling to be on the other side," Watson said after Houston's 57-14 rout of Tennessee on Sunday.
09/28/17 - QB Deshaun Watson donated his first game check to three cafeteria workers at NRG Stadium who were especially affected by the flooding from Hurricane Harvey. Watson recently walked into the cafeteria with envelopes wrapped in a ribbon for the three women. "For what you all do for us every day and never complain, I really appreciate you all, so I wanted to give my first game check to y'all to help y'all out in some type of way," Watson told the woman in a video shared by the Texans. "Here you guys go."
09/25/17 - QB Deshaun Watson, a rookie, used his right arm and his legs to put his team in position to give the Patriots (2-1) back-to-back home losses for the first time in nine years. But he came up short as rookie road quarterbacks fell to 0-9 against head coach Bill Belichick and the Texans dropped to 0-6 all-time at Gillette Stadium.
Watson finished 22 of 33 for 301 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions -- the second on a Hail Mary on the final play of the game.
