Watson Picked Off Twice In Victory

15 Interception In 13 Career Games

HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) – Deshaun Watson threw two picks on Sunday, which gives him 15 in his 13 game career.

Watson played through a bruised chest and a bruised lung, and was noticeably hampered by the injury especially in the running department.  Watson ran for three yards on one carry, which is a career low.  His previous low was a 16-yard performance in his first NFL game in 2017 when he came off the bench. 

The first interception against Buffalo continued a theme for the 2018 season as Watson heaved a ball into the end zone that was picked off by Jordan Poyer.

"(I was) just trying to make a play. The guy did a great job of recovering. Probably should have thrown it away and had points," Watson said.  

Lorenzo Alexander deserves the credit for a third quarter interception of Watson.  Watson tried to throw it over the middle and Alexander deflected it in the air and then made the interception off the ricochet. 

"Tipped ball, nothing I can really control. The guy got his hand up in time and the ball was in the air, and that’s that," Watson added. 

In addition to the two interceptions Watson had on Sunday, he also fumbled three times including once on what turned out to be the game tying drive in the fourth quarter, but the Texans were able to pounce on two of the fumbles by Watson and only lost one.
