The Texans beat the Titans 24-21 to strongly establish themselves at the top of the American Football Conference – Southern Division (AFC South) at the end of Week 15. Deshaun Watson recorded two touchdowns and two interceptions to cap another dominant display for the Texans. He firmly established himself in NFL history after surpassing 70 career touchdowns in just 36 regular-season games. With the feat, he joins NFL Hall of Famers Dan Marino and Kurt Warner and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the record books. If that wasn't enough, he racked up another feat to join Hall of Famer Steve Young as the only players to complete 25 passing touchdowns and five rushing touchdowns in multiple seasons.
Deshaun Watson has recorded 26 touchdowns and 11 interceptions so far in the campaign and has already completed more than 3500 passing yards this campaign. The Texans have boosted their playoff chances majorly with a win over the Titans ahead of the final two weeks in the NFL regular season.

It should come as no surprise that the 24-year-old quarterback has been in the conversation for the NFL MVP award along with the likes of Baltimore Ravens' Lamar Jackson and Seattle Seahawks' Russell Wilson. Although not the favourite to scoop the award, it's nevertheless a major honour for the quarterback, who is only playing his third season in the NFL.
