Deshaun Watson is one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL, and while his Madden 21 rating might not quite reflect his stardom yet, any time your name is in the same sentence as Dan Marino, you know you're doing something right.

Watson has averaged at least 7.0 yards per attempt and posted a touchdown rate of at least 5 percent in each of his first three NFL seasons — something no QB has pulled off since Marino.

While you may not want to be compared to Marino when it comes to Super Bowls, it's a privilege in just about any other area.

Regardless, Texans fans have to be thrilled that is the type of company Watson is keeping. As long as he can continue to post these impressive numbers, and especially if he can add a Super Bowl win, Watson will be on his way to being an all-time great.
