HOUSTON - Texans Deshaun Watson's left eye was a big talker this week after he was injured in a game against the Oakland Raiders. 

Watson made a spectacular game-winning touchdown pass at the same time, taking a cleat to the face. 

Despite the injury, Watson led the Texans to a 26-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. When an NFL Network reporter asked him about his eye, Watson gave credit to -- Popeyes Chicken? 

He said eating a Popeyes Spicy Chicken Sandwich earlier this week was the key that helped his eye. 

"The eye is great," Watson said. "You know I got some. I can tell you the key, the key is, it was the Popeyes spicy chicken sandwiches that I ate this week. That helped the eye."
