"Deshaun Watson Gives the Texans Hope after Winning His First NFL Start" by Harry Lyles, Jr. on sbnation.com

A word on Watson's 49-yard touchdown run: I've read where he's only "seeing" his first options, and if nobody is open - instead of seeing his second and third options, i.e., "the progression," - he's seeing the rushers coming at him and panicking: That's not something you want in the NFL. However, notice that on this particular run, he stepped *up into* the pocket - even as it was collapsing - rather than scampering around and trying to flee from the play.

Statistics can be invented, and this one surely was, but today, Deshaun Watson became the first QB in NFL history to:

* Pass for 4,000 yards, and
* Pass for 25 TDs, and
* Rush for 500 yards, and
* Rush for 5 TDs.

And today, Deshaun Waston became the first QB in NFL history to:

* Pass for more than 400 yards (this is all in one game), and
* Throw 5-or-more touchdowns, and
* Throw 5-or-less incompletions.

All for a perfect 158.3 passer rating.

Not coincidentally, he didn't get sacked today. There was one other game in his career when he didn't get sacked, and he also threw 5 touchdowns, only 4 incompletions, and had a passer rating of 156.
