I don't know. I don't really have any answers.

I've been saying nearly every week in the fantasy football article that Will Fuller is going to have a big game, and it finally happened.

So when the Texans and the Falcons meet in Houston on Sunday, both will be looking for a convincing win that minimizes concerns their fans have through the first quarter of the season.

Texans' quarterback Deshaun Watson dominated the game for Houston (3-2) following a poor performance last week. According to ESPN Stats & Information, only three teams in National Football League history had a losing record through five games and still reached the Super Bowl. He also rushed for 47 yards and had only five incomplete passes. He did not throw an interception.

The big beneficiary of Watson's great day was fourth-year receiver Will Fuller V, who also had a career day, with a franchise record-tying 14 catches for 217 yards and three touchdowns.

Earlier in the season, it was the offense holding the Falcons back, but when they finally showed up on Sunday, Quinn's defense let them down. "We had to go in and execute, bring the energy, play fast, do what we do and make sure that every time we touch the ball, we try to end with points".

Part of the reason for Watson's big performance is that he was not sacked by the Falcons.

Communication is not always seamless on offense, but Watson went through what happens when a wideout does not pick up on his signals or a receiver's route does not go as planned. And according to Texans' public relations, he's the first player to throw for at least 400 yards and five TDs with five or fewer incompletions.
