Deshaun Watson’s Debut As A Starting Quarterback Was Pretty Impressive
Deshaun Watson was impressive during his first start as an NFL quarterback Thursday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Watson finished with only 125 passing yards in the 13-9 victory, but he busted off an insane 49-yard touchdown rush. The Bengals defense had absolutely no shot at stopping him once he got into the open field.

There are very few quarterbacks in the NFL capable of consistently rushing for 10 yards. Watson took it to the house and made it look like he was running around high school kids out there.
It might not have been the most impressive night through the air, but his ground attack was incredibly exciting. I’m all in on the Deshaun Watson era in Houston, and last night made me even more pumped.
