Watson took multiple big hits in the victory against the Cowboys.
Watson's confidence was more direct than coach Bill O'Brien, who previously wouldn't divulge the QB's status, saying that he would "let the injury report speak for itself". He's tied for the NFL lead with six sacks (his brother T.J.is one of players he's tied with), shares the league lead with Khalil Mack with four forced fumbles, and is tied for fourth in tackles for loss with seven.
But as the game drew to a close, Peterman reverted to his 2017 form, harkening back to his five-interception effort against the Chargers last November. "Everybody put that on their shoulders this week and just tried to give it all up for him".
It was Joseph's first interception of the season and the 29th on his career.
Buffalo's defense played well enough to win the game, keeping Houston to 216 net yards.
Watson didn't want to blame his poor play on the injury - he and the offense struggled, as they scored just 13 points, 10 of which came after takeaways - but did acknowledge he's focused on recovering from his injury before Houston plays the Jaguars in Week 7. Josh Allen is a rookie in the National Football League and going against a tough Texans defense led by J.J. Watt.
"I kind of thought for a second to just get there and hold the ball so we can the run clock out", Joseph said.
After the game on Sunday, Watson said he was fine and felt good.
"At the end of the game. he was probably trying to do too much", McDermott said.
