CLEMSON in the NFL

WATCH: Deshaun Watson makes incredible escape, throw in TD drive


by -

Deshaun Watson engineered a scoring drive to give Houston the lead late at Philadelphia in an overall effort that came up just short for the Texans (32-30 loss on a game-ending FG).

On third and long in Houston territory, Watson escaped a number of tackles to extend the drive:

Then in Eagles territory, he lofted a perfect pass into the back of the end zone for the go-ahead score. The Texans trailed by two scores midway through the fourth quarter at Philadelphia:

Along the way, Clemson product DeAndre Hopkins continued to make some great catches to keep the Texans in it:

Watson finished completing 29-of-40 attempts for 339 yards with two touchdowns to no interceptions and also rushed for two scores. Hopkins hauled in nine receptions for 104 yards.

The Texans are in play for their first-ever first-round bye in the AFC Playoffs and finish their season next week hosting Jacksonville (1 p.m.).
