Deshaun Watson goes from taking a vicious shot/sack to escaping for a 49-yard TD. Guts. Resilience. Big-stage playmaking. Special young man.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) September 15, 2017
Alabama fans can back me up on this: Watson is at his best once you hit him. He responds to pressure so well.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) September 15, 2017
