Drew Lock Era Begins With a Bang
The Drew Lock “Era” began last Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, and it will be a game that neither Drew Lock or his family will forget anytime soon. Lock was able to lead the Denver Broncos to a win in Lock’s first start in regular-season action and looked pretty solid while doing so. He threw two quick TD’s to Courtland Sutton, and although he made a few rookie mistakes (as expected), he looked calm, poised and most importantly, confident.
The offensive line even seemed to improve with Lock at the helm. No sacks were recorded against the unit versus the Chargers. While Lock’s stats may not be especially flashy, it was a good start for the second round talent out of Mizzou who has been sidelined most of this season with a thumb injury. If he impresses throughout the rest of the 2019 season, the front office and coaching staff may feel confident that they have their QB for the 2020 season.
Deshaun Watson and the Texans Look to Add Another Home Win
The Houston Texans are 5-1 at home in 2019, and will look to make it 6-1 against the Denver Broncos. DeShaun Watson is having a spectacular season, with 3,133 pass yards on the season and 23 TDs on the season so far, currently tied for fourth with Kirk Cousins among QB’s this season.
Six of those TDs come on the ground, and Watson is capable of making just about anything happen. If he can’t fit the ball to a receiver, he will pick up the first down with his legs, and will beat defenders to the marker all day. His play is comparable to that of likely 2019 MVP Lamar Jackson.
Watson and Co. will look to keep their momentum from the victory over the Patriots going, where he earned his first victory against Tom Brady, a very special feat for the 24-year-old Watson.
