Twitter reacts to classic Deshaun Watson game at Seattle
|Sunday, October 29, 2017, 8:53 PM- -|
At this point, the NFL has caught on to what fans around college football knew already about Deshaun Watson.
That didn't lessen the reaction on social media to another record-chasing effort in a heartbreaker of a loss at Seattle Sunday.
Watson and Seattle's Russell Wilson battled to the final seconds in the Seahawks' 41-38 win.
Watson passed for 402 yards with four touchdowns to three picks, leading the Texans with eight carries for 67 yards as well. Wilson countered with 452 passing yards and four touchdown passes, as well 30 rushing yards.
The loss still only leaves Houston a game out of first place in the AFC South in a young campaign where Watson has thrown for more TDs than any rookie ever through seven games (19), and that mark has him tied with Philadelphia's Carson Wentz atop the NFL going into Sunday night.
Check out highlights from the Twitter buzz around his game today and the seven-game run so far:
