The Houston Texans defeated the New England Patriots 28-22 on Sunday night.

Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson finally got a win against one of his idols growing up as he played impressively completing 18-for-25 with 234 passing yards and four touchdowns (3 passing, 1 receiving).

“You know, that’s my role model, a guy that’s been doing it forever,” Watson said. “[He’s been playing for] over 20 years, I’m only alive for 20 years, so it’s pretty awesome to finally get one and to just see the love and respect we have for each other and it was big. So, it was awesome.”

Watson had someone that he can talk to with Brady if he needs some advice.

“He just, you know, congratulated me and said, ‘Keep going, stay healthy.’ You know, we’ve been in touch. We’re going to talk this offseason. And definitely, you know, a resource that you know he’s going to give an opportunity to check in and learn from him. I’m definitely going to take it.”
