HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for the third time this season.

Watson was named offensive Player of the Week after his Sunday Night Football performance in a 28-22 win against the New England Patriots.

In Week 13, Watson completed 18-of-25 passes (72.0 percent) for 234 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions and a 140.7 rating. He also caught a six-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in the fourth quarter for his first career reception and receiving touchdown.

Watson joined Jim McMahon (Week 4 of 1985) as the only players to have at least three passing touchdowns and a receiving touchdown in a regular season game in the Super Bowl era.

This marks his third Player of the Week award this season (Week 3 and Week 5) and the fourth of his NFL career (Week 4 of 2017). Watson is the first player in franchise history to win three Player of the Week awards in the same season.
