NFL players react to Deshaun Watson’s impressive touchdown run
Deshaun Watson showed some impressive speed on the way to a long touchdown run, and players from around the NFL had some pretty great reactions.
Late in the second quarter of Thursday’s game between the Texans and Bengals, Houston faced a 3rd down and 15 on the Cincinnati 49-yard line. Watson got much more than 15 yards. After being forced up in the pocket, the rookie quarterback took off and avoided defenders on the way to the end zone.
Mr. @DeshaunWatson WILL DO IT HIMSELF.

Watson was making his first NFL start after coming in during the second half of the Texans’ Week 1 game in relief of Tom Savage. Thursday was also Watson’s birthday. He certainly picked a good way to mark the occasion.
