After being kicked in the face, Deshaun Watson thought his eyeball had fallen out

Texans QB Deshaun Watson made some incredible plays to lead the team to a win over the Raiders, and Mike Florio and Chris Simms believe he isn't getting enough praise around the league for his play.

An Any Given Sunday moment could have happened last Sunday.

According to Melissa Stark of NFL Network, who is reporting from the sideline of the Texans-Jaguars game in London, Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson initially thought after being kicked in the face last week against the Raiders that his eyeball had fallen out.

Obviously, it didn’t. But Watson spent at least a few seconds of his life thinking that it had. And he still threw a touchdown pass with that thought in mind.

Watson was planning to wear a visor during today’s game. Stark reported that he was concerned about the mist in London fogging the visor.

The Texans currently lead Jacksonville 3-0 in the first quarter of their early-morning showdown at Wembley Stadium. Which hopefully won’t result in eyeballs or any other organs on the pitch.
