Patrick Mahomes is a Deshaun Watson fan.Β 

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback praised his Houston Texans counterpart during Watson's Thanksgiving matchup with the Detroit Lions on Thursday:

Nobody disagreed:

Watson was awesome yet again on Sunday, finishing 17-of-25 for 318 yards and four touchdowns in Houston's 41-25 win. That's three wins in Houston's last four games, moving the Texans to 4-7.Β 

After the game, Watson gave Mahomes a shoutout of his own:

The playoffs still feel like a long shot for this team. But Watson is cooking, and the Texans are moving in a better direction after a disappointing 0-4 start to the year.Β
