Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is one of the best young stars in the NFL, even if his EA Sports "Madden NFL 21" rating might not reflect it. While he may not lead the NFL in every category, there is one crucial stat he does lead the league in.

When the game is on the line, Watson performs his best, at least according to this PFF stat. Watson received the highest grade of any NFL QB against playoff teams.

Heading into a 2020 season where Watson is projected to be more important than ever to his Texans team, Watson's ability to perform highly against playoff teams will be paramount.

When you top a list that includes Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson, you know you're in good company, now it's up to Watson to keep it going this season.
