Watson completed 27 of 38 passing attempts for 267 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Colts. He also rushed for 35 yards on five carries.
Watson led three touchdown drives on the day, but Alfred Blue and Lamar Miller took two of them in from short distances. The 23-year-old found DeAndre Hopkins over the middle for a seven-yard score in the fourth quarter to draw within three points, but the Texans were unable to complete the comeback. Despite the loss, the game marks Watson's best passing effort since Week 5. The Texans head to New York to take on the Jets in Week 15.

Watson's limitations Wednesday appear to have been maintenance-related and the signal caller -- who has led his team to nine straight wins -- is slated to start Sunday's game against the Colts. Watson's 3,031passing yards through 12 games rank 14th in the league, but he's helped out fantasy players with 375 yards on the ground (fourth among QBs) and a pair of rushing scores, while carving out a respectable 21:9 TD/INT ratio in that span.
Watson completed 22 of 31 passes for 224 yards and a touchdown while adding 30 yards on seven rushing attempts in Sunday's 29-13 win over the Browns.
Watson hit all eight of his first-quarter passes, including an 11-yard touchdown to Jordan Thomas which put Houston up 10-0. The Texans didn't ask much of their quarterback in the second half after taking a 23-0 lead into the locker room, but Watson still did enough to lead his team to its ninth straight win ahead of a Week 14 clash with the AFC South rival Colts.
Watson completed 19 of 24 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 34-17 win over the Titans. He also rushed eight times for 71 yards and another score.
Watson was excellent Monday night, doing damage both through the air and on the ground. In fact, his rushing total marked a career high, which included a 15-yard score on a read option during the second quarter. Prior to that, Watson found new wideout Demaryius Thomas on a 12-yard touchdown pass to start Houston's scoring. The pair then later connected on a 10-yard touchdown to seal the game in the fourth quarter. Now having led his team to eight straight victories, Watson will look to keep the momentum going in Week 13 versus the Browns.
