Deshaun Watson makes National Football League history in 53-32 win

Texans' quarterback Deshaun Watson dominated the game for Houston (3-2) following a poor performance last week.

Watson completed 28-for-33 passes for a career-high 426 passing yards and career-tying five touchdowns totaling a career-best 158.3 passer rating (perfect rating).

So when the Texans and the Falcons meet in Houston on Sunday, both will be looking for a convincing win that minimizes concerns their fans have through the first quarter of the season.

Additionally, Watson became the first quarterback in National Football League history to throw for 400 yards and five scores while throwing five or fewer incompletions.

Watching the game is one thing, but getting a lesson on why quarterbacks and offenses make certain decisions and how they read the defense is something else.

On Sunday, Watson was almost ideal as he dissected a Falcons defense that allowed just seven passing touchdowns in the previous four weeks. Atlanta sits at 1-3 after falling to the Titans in Week 4, when the Falcons gained almost 400 yards through the air but mustered just 10 points. Early in the season, Watson is making a justified case that he should be considered as an MVP candidate.

The 24-year-old broke down the Falcons coverage the Falcons and how the team was able to exploit it to make plays on offense.

Where did that type of performance from the Houston Texans come from?
