Deshaun Watson and Aaron Rodgers are both terrific quarterbacks, but people generally don't compare them as similarly styled players. Despite that, the two may have more in common than it seems, as Watson is within range of Rodgers' NFL record in Week 10.

For a quarterback that gets much more credit for his athleticism than his passing accuracy, this may come off as a pretty surprising statistic to some. Especially since Watson is quarterbacking a two-win team in 2020.

The Houston Texans will play the Cleveland Browns this weekend, who aren't known for their secondary, ranking No. 24 in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. Deshaun could certainly hit the numbers listed in the tweet, but will Rodgers surrender his lead against a pitiful Jacksonville Jaguars defense?

Whether Watson catches the Green Bay Packers legend or not, this should make for an ongoing story throughout the rest of the season. Total passer rating can be dramatically affected by one bad performance, so both quarterbacks will have to be on their toes as the year comes to a head.
