Deshaun Watson didn’t let pouring rain put a damper on his Pro Bowl debut in Orlando on Sunday.
Late in the fourth quarter, he threw a six-yard touchdown pass to the most unlikely of targets – Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
“We’re real good friends, good boys,” Watson said after the game. “It was cool. Something that we created on the fly and I just told him to run a slant and he did and caught the six.”
With 0:19 remaining in the game, Watson’s found Ramsey in the endzone to cap a six-play, 67-yard drive.
Patrick Mahomes started the game for the AFC and threw a touchdown pass to give the AFC an early 7-0 lead. Andrew Luck came off the bench while Watson entered the game in the third quarter. On his first drive, Watson led the offense on scoring drive that ended in a 47-yard field goal to extend the AFC lead 20-0. The Texans starting quarterback completed 7-of-15 for 128 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the AFC’s 26-7 win over the NFC.
“I had a great time, enjoyed it,” Watson said. “It was a blast. Definitely if I get the opportunity, I’d come back again.”
The Texans had three players competing in the 2019 NFL Pro Bowl at Camping World Stadium: Watson, Lamar Miller and Benardrick McKinney. It was the first Pro Bowl appearance for the trio of players.
