Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson was struggling early Thursday in his first NFL start. But that changed when the mobile signal caller scored this brilliant 49-yard rushing touchdown through the teeth of the Cincinnati Bengals’ defense.
Just watch him torch several Cincinnati Bengals defenders in the process. There was no stopping Watson on this play.

Speaking of scoring, Watson was the first Texan to put a touchdown on the board on Thursday. Maybe this is just what the Texans need to get their game jump-started after the team benched Tom Savage following a disastrous Week 1 performance.
