DW4 was on fire today.

Deshaun Watson had a career day in the Texans' 53-32 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon.

Watson completed 28-for-33 passes for a career-high 426 passing yards and career-tying five touchdowns totaling a career-best 158.3 passer rating (perfect rating). On the ground, he had 47 yards and wasn't sacked.

He is the third player in the Super Bowl era with 400 passing yards, five passing touchdowns, and a perfect passer rating in a game. He is also the first player in NFL history to throw for more than 400 yards and five touchdowns with five or fewer incompletions in a single game.

Will Fuller and Watson connected early and often as he had a career-high 217 yards on 14 receptions and three scores.
