QB Deshaun Watson played an incredible game throwing three touchdown passes and leading the team to its comeback win. In the fourth quarter, the Texans were down 20-24 when Watson masterfully threw the game-winning touchdown.
But when the video of the touchdown was replayed and slowed down, you realize he was kicked in the eye a split-second before he threw a perfectly placed touchdown pass.
This @deshaunwatson play gets more amazing the more I look at it.— Ari Alexander (@KPRC2Ari) October 28, 2019
I stopped it where
- You can see him get kicked in the eye
- Where he - MID-PLAY - puts his hand up to his face
...then a split second later throws a perfectly placed touchdown pass. pic.twitter.com/H4YqdwFg7u
As Watson spun out of his first defender, Raiders' defensive end Arden Key's cleat went right through his facemask, clipping him in the eye. Watson can be seen touching his helmet to readjust it and throw the ball to Fells to score.
Key's cleat made it through the opening in Watson's helmet b/w the helmet and the facemask. He's walking off. Crowd offering huge ovation. #Texans have taken the lead w/ 6:26 left. https://t.co/Yfx3DPlcMW— Adam Wexler (@KPRC2AdamW) October 27, 2019
