Deshaun Watson's Week 11 Loss to Ravens Was Biggest of His Entire Football Career
Ever since we were formally introduced to Deshaun Watson as the Clemson Tigers' quarterback in college, seemingly all he's done is win. In his two years (2014-15) as Clemson's full-time starter, Watson compiled a 28-2 record.
Although, Watson's success at the high school level is what landed him at Clemson, a national powerhouse in college football, before being selected as the No. 12 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans.
However, his current team's Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens was more than just a loss for Watson, as it broke a streak he had held since his days playing ball ball in high school and all the way through college into his NFL career. Sunday's 41-7 loss to Baltimore was the first time Watson had lost by more than two touchdowns in that near 10-year span.
While we cannot confirm if Watson suffered a loss of this nature prior to his high school career, it's a wildly impressive streak regardless.
Watson has seen a solid year from a fantasy football perspective. He's posted performances with as many as 41.7 points, but he's also had a few duds like Sunday's matchup with the Ravens, where he only posted 4.0 fantasy points.
As long as Watson can avoid performances like this one going forward, he should have a good chance at starting a new streak, although, in the NFL, you can't expect it to last for almost another decade.
