VIDEO: Remembering When Deshaun Watson Threw a TD Pass With Only One Eye
Deshaun Watson will be entering the 2020 NFL season with a big handicap to his game after the Houston Texans traded away superstar wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
Luckily for Texans fans, Watson has shown a real ability to overcome adversity in his career.
He was sacked an NFL-high 62 times in 2018, and in 2019 he made this stellar play while only being able to see out of one eye.
Do you want your quarterback to have to overcome 62-sack seasons, or to have to make plays with one eye? Probably not. But it sure doesn't hurt to have one who is capable of doing that when the need arises.
Watson has proven himself to be one of the NFL's brightest young passers over 38 career games, throwing for 9,716 yards and 71 touchdowns with a 101.0 passer rating. He won't be without weapons this year, with a trio of speedy deep threats in Will Fuller, Kenny Stills and the newly acquired Brandin Cooks on the outside, while also getting a new skilled receiving back in David Johnson.
Still, Watson and the Texans will be fighting an uphill battle to continue posting big numbers through the air. Now is the time for Watson to step up and prove that he's truly one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
