Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson led Clemson to the national title on Monday night in the best performance by a quarterback ever according to FiveThirtyEight.com. He ended completing 36 for 56 passes for 420 yards and three passing touchdowns against the tough Alabama defense. He also showed his dual-threat ability with 21 rushes for 43 yards and a rushing score.

Watson also has the third best performance of all-time in last year's title game against Alabama.

Basically, Watson was at his absolute best when it mattered on the biggest of stages. Good luck to Watson on his next step as a rookie in the NFL.
