As the Tennessee Titans entered week four of the NFL season, they had no idea what was coming there way.

The rookie quarterback, Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans, was the reason for the Titans’ humiliation. He was drafted twelfth overall in the 2017 NFL draft and was the third quarterback drafted this year. Watson attended Clemson University for three years and began his career on the bench behind senior Cole Stoudt, but during his true freshman year, he was given the starting job in week four against North Carolina. In that game, he threw for 435 yards and 6 touchdowns, setting the ACC record for most touchdowns in a player’s first college game. Watson would then go on to lead the Tigers to two National Championship appearances and one National Title in his junior year. His other accomplishments include being a two-time Manning award winner, two-time Danny O’Brien award winner, and two-time Heisman finalist.

The Houston Texans hosted the Tennessee Titans on October 1st, 2017. Quarterback Deshaun Watson would be making his third career start this game. In his first two starts, Watson threw for 326 yards, 2 touchdowns, 2 interceptions, and rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown. Against the Titans, Watson threw for 283 yards, 4 touchdowns, an interception, and rushed for 24 yards and a touchdown. Watson led the Texans to a franchise record 57-14 win, and his 5 touchdowns tied the record for most touchdowns by a rookie quarterback.
