Houston Texans rookie Deshaun Watson carved up the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night completing 19-for-30 passes for four passing touchdowns and three interceptions in the 41-38 loss. He also had eight rushes for 67 yards on the ground.

Watson has 19 passing touchdowns through his first seven games which breaks an NFL rookie record from Hall-of-Famer Kurt Warner.

Another record set today -- Watson is the first quarterback in NFL history to have a 400+ passing game, four passing touchdowns, and 55+ rushing yards in the same game. This was also his third game of four or more passing touchdowns joining Fran Tarkenton (1961).

Watson's rookie season has to be one of the greatest seven games statistically of any rookie in NFL history. Several general managers that passed on Watson might be getting pink slips eventually by not grabbing Watson.
