Magical Watson Helps Texans Survive Bills

Jonathan Grant | January 5th, 2020

The first playoff game of the season took place on Saturday afternoon, and it did not disappoint in terms of drama. At least late in the going, that is. Deshaun Watson was brilliant in his play throwing (20-25 for 247 and a TD) and rushing (14 carries for 55 yards and a TD) throughout the Wild Card meeting, but it was the play he made is overtime with the game locked at 19 apiece that will be remembered for years to come.

Faced with Buffalo Bill after Bill, he was able to elude them and find Taiwan Jones, allowing the receive to get into supreme field goal range. That set up Ka’imi Fairbairn’s 28-yard winning field goal. To make matters even more impressive, Watson and co. had to come back from a 16-0 hole. They didn’t score their first points until a minute and a half was left on the block in the third quarter. Btu when they did score, they put up 19 in a row only for the Bills to kick a tying field goal with five ticks remaining. In the end, though, it would not matter, as the Texans took a 22-19 victory in OT to advance in thrilling fashion yet again.
