Another award for DW4.

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season.

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

He 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 joining Nick Foles and Jared Goff 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.
