Deshaun Watson didn’t take time off during Texans’ bye week

Deshaun Watson didn't take any time off during the Texans' bye week because he wanted to fix some of his flaws.

Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson did not treat the team’s bye week like a vacation.

Although coach Bill O’Brien gave the team six days off, Watson said he put himself through a tough work week.

“I worked out, worked on my conditioning and watched a lot of film of myself -- self-evaluation,” Watson said, via the Houston Chronicle. “I tried to correct mistakes and build on that.”

Watson saw a lot on film that he can improve upon.

“I want to make better decisions,” he said. “Ball placement, quicker reads, pocket awareness and operate the offense the best I can.”

Watson has been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL since taking over as the Texans’ starter in Week Two, but he’s not satisfied.
