Authentic Youth Robby Anderson Jersey Someone finally did something right in Thursday Night Football between the Texans and Bengals.
Deshaun Watson busted out a highlight reel 49-yard touchdown run to break a 3-3 tie in the first half, eliciting cheers from Texans fans for the first time in the monotonous first half.
Watson had been having a lot of trouble getting much of anything going, completing 5-of-10 passes for 34 yards and talling one rush for four yards prior to the final drive before the half. A nice pass to DeAndre Hopkins got things going and a shot from Bengals’ Geno Atkins may have truly woken Watson up.

Just a couple of plays later Watson broke through the line and scored the first touchdown of the game. Not a bad way for Watson to spend his 22nd birthday.
Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers: Now it’s time to panic. Newton, who was started in 66.9 percent of ESPN leagues as he faced a New Orleans Saints defense that had surrendered a most-in-the-league 56.3 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks in the season’s first two weeks, dropped an 8.3-point stinker on Sunday, his sixth-worst single-game effort in his 96 career NFL contests.
Even more troubling: He was benched in the fourth quarter — granted, with the Panthers trailing by 21 points — and, a week after losing Greg Olsen for at least the next seven weeks due to a broken foot, he lost Kelvin Benjamin to a knee injury that threatens to cost the No. 1 wideout additional time. Newton, who is coming off March shoulder surgery, doesn’t appear his usual self, making him a surefire sit until he begins to show some improvement.
