HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) – For the second straight week, the Texans’ offensive line has not surrendered a sack, which is the first time in Deshaun Watson’s career that his offense live has prevented a sack in back-to-back weeks.   

“Those guys are continuing to improve and continuing to grow each and every week.  You just kind of keep encouraging them and keep bringing them along, and they’ll do their part.  They’ve been doing a hell of a job this year keeping me upright and I’ve been feeling great the past two weeks,” Watson said following the Texans’ win.

The Texans' offensive line on Sunday, which consisted of Laremy Tunsil and Tytus Howard at the tackles, Max Scharping and Zach Fulton at the guards and Nick Martin at center was the first time the Texans started the same offensive line in back-to-back weeks.

Howard left Sunday's game with a leg injury, but the Texans are hopeful it's not serious.  

As Watson said, he’s felt great being comfortable in the pocket.  Watson finished 30 of 42 for 280 yards, a touchdown and an interception, but also ran for 42 yards with two scores against Kansas City.

Last week against Atlanta, Watson was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week as he was 28 of 33 for 426 yards and five touchdowns in the Texans’ 53-32 win against the Falcons.
