Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson is not intimidated by anything. That came out in droves early Sunday against the Seahawks in Seattle.

Facing a second and long on the team’s opening possession, Watson unleashed a beautiful down-field pass to fellow youngster Will Fuller, beating the Legion of Boom with a 59-yard scoring strike in the process.

Not only did this give Houston a 7-0 lead, Watson himself set an NFL rookie record in the process.

No wonder Watson is viewed as a franchise quarterback. He’s now tallied 13 total touchdowns in his past 12-plus quarters of action.

And for his part, Fuller has been absolutely dazzling.

The NFL’s most-hostile environment obviously isn’t too big of a stage for this young Texans tandem.
