Texans’ Deshaun Watson completes incredible TD pass to Jordan Akins
The Houston Texans and the Los Angeles Chargers faced off in a tight Week 3 matchup on Sunday. Deshaun Watson showed off his incredible talent in tandem with Jordan Akins.
The quarterback threw for well over 300 yards (351 to be exact) and had three passing touchdowns in the game. His numbers helped lead his team to a 27-20 win over the Chargers.
Watson’s third and final touchdown pass was the most impressive of all. He escaped all types of pressure to hit Jordan Akins for a completion, and let Akins do the rest.

The Texans barely sneaked by with a 27-20 victory and you definitely need to give credit to Deshaun Watson.
Of all the throws he made, this was by far the most impressive. Watson escaped trouble and made what was a sure sack into a touchdown.
It should also be noted that Akins did a great job of getting wide open and making himself available to Deshaun Watson. Then he scampered the rest of the way for a touchdown.
The Texans are now 2-1 on the season and have played just one game at home. That’s a great start to the year and Watson’s looking like he’s grown as a quarterback.
This play was an indication that he’s ready to torture defenses for a long time. Next up, the Texans have the 1-2 Panthers in a Week 3 matchup. The Panthers better study some tape and figure out exactly how to bring down Watson, or history might repeat itself.
