It didn’t take him long.
After replacing Tom Savage for the second half of today’s season-opener, Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson quickly fired his first professional touchdown.
Watson led the Texans on a 14-play, 75-yard drive to start the third quarter, capping the march off with a four-yard touchdown toss to DeAndre Hopkins.
Here’s the play below.

Watson was 5-of-8 for 37 yards and a touchdown on the drive, while adding a nine-yard scramble.
Yeah, he’s not giving this job back anytime soon.
