Patrick Mahomes is a Deshaun Watson fan.
The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback praised his Houston Texans counterpart during Watson's Thanksgiving matchup with the Detroit Lions on Thursday:
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.
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.
