WHEN THE TEX­ANS PASS

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - SPORTS SUNDAY -

It’s too much to ex­pect De­shaun Wat­son to have an­other per­for­mance like the Ten­nessee game in which he threw four touch­down passes. He has six in the last two games and seven for the sea­son. Get­ting back Will Fuller, their fastest re­ceiver, should keep a safety shaded to his side while the Chiefs put Pro Bowl cor­ner­back Mar­cus Peters on DeAn­dre Hop­kins, the league’s lead­ing re­ceiver. With Fuller go­ing deep and clear­ing out the mid­dle of the field, that should open up space for Hop­kins and tight end Ryan Grif­fin for in­ter­me­di­ate and short routes. Watch for Wat­son to go early and of­ten to Hop­kins, who has drawn a league­high seven in­ter­fer­ence penal­ties. Out­side line­backer Justin Hous­ton and end Chris Jones must get pres­sure on Wat­son.
