The Texans are on the board finally after a DeShaun Watson 20-yard touchdown run. We break it down.

UPDATE: Watson put the Texans on his shoulders and has the game in overtime. In regulation, he completed 15 of 19 passes for 165 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 50 yards and a touchdown.

The Houston Texans have struggled to get much of anything going on offense in the Wild Card round, but late in the third quarter, quarterback DeShaun Watson started making things happen. Watson completed three passes for 29 yards, but capped the drive with a 20-yard touchdown run in which he absolutely bulldozed through multiple Bills defenders.

Watson then followed by scrambling for the two-point conversation to cut the Bills lead to 16-8 with 1:33 left in the third quarter.
