Deshaun Watson’s made quite a few incredible plays during the course of his young career, and this one is right up there.
With 6:30 remaining in Sunday’s game against the Raiders, Watson had the Texans in the red zone and escaped a sack to deliver a strike to his tight end.
Slow-motion replay revealed that Watson was kicked in the face by a fallen Raiders player while running out of the collapsed pocket.

Even slower motion replay revealed that Watson threw the touchdown pass with the eye facing his receiver completely shut.
One-eyed Watson would not be denied. 👀😳@deshaunwatson | @insidetheNFL | @HoustonTexans pic.twitter.com/0aQ2VBn5r8
