Colin Cowherd: Deshaun Watson Might Just be the NFL's Best Player

Houston Texans v Kansas City Chiefs
Colin Cowherd: “I’m not sure Patrick Mahomes is better than Deshaun Watson…It’s always been easier to see Mahomes being GREAT: he has the big arm and is flashier so his highlights get shown far more on TV.,, But Mahomes came into the league with a great head coach, nice weapons, and solid organizational structure... In the last 17 games they’ve played Deshaun is 13-4 and Mahomes is 11-6. If they played 10 times, I think both of them win 5 times a piece. Mahomes has the bigger arm and Deshaun is the better athlete... It's a coin flip." (Full Video at Bottom of Page)

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why the Deshaun Watson bandwagon is growing with every passing week, as the streaking Texans have won four out of their last five games and have taken a stranglehold of the historically soft AFC South.

After Watson beat Mahomes head-to-head in Arrowhead, Colin says Watson is now 13-4 in his last 17 games compared to Mahomes’ 11-6, and says the gap between Watson and Mahomes has now shrunk to nearly microscopic levels.

Check out the video below as Colin argues that Watson has a legitimate case as the league’s best quarterback, as he currently ranks 4th in QBR and 3rd in passer rating, leading a Texans team that finally gave him elite offensive line protection with their trade of Laremy Tunsil in the offseason.
