Though quarterback DeShawn Watson has plenty of big-game experience, he has never played in the potentially frigid December conditions he could face Saturday in New York against the Jets, where the forecast calls for a low of 39 with an 80 percent chance of rain and 10-15 mph winds, and again in Week 16 in Philadelphia, where temps could dip below freezing with 10-15 mph winds against the Eagles. “I mean, nothing like the north because I'm from Georgia,” Watson said when asked if he has played in winter conditions.
It's unlikely those products will do the trick (unless Watson has sore muscles), but the Texans have plans in place to prepare their Southern-born-and-bred quarterback for wintry conditions. Head coach Bill O'Brien noted the Texans will get an assist from the weather in Houston this week.
Watson said he is most focused on his grip in wet weather and making sure he is more “cautious” with his footwork, saying he has to prepare for the possibility that his receivers might have trouble with their footing on the slippery turf if the weather is bad. Though the Texans won't be facing a similarly talented and vaunted defense in the Jets as the Rams faced against the Bears, Los Angeles quarterback Jared Goff had a tough time Sunday on a freezing 29-degree night in Chicago.
Leading one of the NFL's best offenses in the bitter cold at Soldier Field, Goff led the Rams to just six points in a loss, throwing four interceptions while going 20-for-44 passing. Despite the challenges the weather could present, Watson is confident his game will be on point.
