Watson growing in Texans offense

(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson kept looking to his right for an opening in the red zone. However, that area of the field was effectively cut off by New England Patriots defensive end Kony Ealy.

So, the Texans' rookie changed his plan on the fly. He cut sharply up the middle and scampered into the end zone for a 2-yard touchdown run, his second rushing score through two preseason games.

It was the best moment for the first-round draft pick from Clemson during an up-and-down game against the Patriots.
