2. Deshaun Watson goes toe-to-toe with Drew Brees
The national audience is going to be tuned in to this game because it is the first of two Monday Night Football Games and that massive audience will not be disappointed. We are going to get an old-fashioned shootout, similar to the one we saw last year in Week 1.
We all know what Brees can do and we know that he is especially good when he is home and indoors. We also all know how good Watson can be, however, he has not earned the same level of expectancy that Drew Brees has.
Whether or not Watson has a good game is going to come down to the offensive line, which led to him getting pressure way more than he should have last season. However, the Texans really honed in on improving that line in the draft and even just added former first-round pick Laremy Tunsil to the team.
With the running game being very depleted with the loss of Lamar Miller, Watson is going to have to do that much more. Whether it is finding DeAndre Hopkins deep into coverage or extending drives with his legs, the offense is going to be going as far as Watson can go.
It might be a completely different style of quarterback, but Watson is going to prove that he can hang with Brees and he is ready to potentially move into that elite group of quarterbacks in the near future.
If you are a Saints fan then you should at least gear up and get Watson on your daily fantasy team.
