Deshaun Watson said on Wednesday that he feels better than he did a week ago while dealing with a chest injury. “I'm cleared to practice,” he said. “I'm cleared to do everything. So I'm good.” Watson said he didn't play with any extra padding on Sunday against the Bills and that his injury didn't affect much of his game other than playing “a little conservative as far as running the ball. Outside of that, it didn't really bother me,” Watson said. “I didn't worry about the injury or anything during the Cowboys game because I didn't know what was going on -- no one did -- and then last week I was fine and I was cleared to play and I was healthy.”

Bills CB Tre'Davious White tweeted about Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins after Buffalo's 20-13 loss Sunday, writing, "Damn they hiding a all pro receiver in the back field to getting away from me now … 2 catches for like 30 some yards and a lot crying to the refs smh .. [lock emoji].” Hopkins finished with five catches for 63 yards and a touchdown against White, but White later clarified in a tweet that he meant Hopkins only made two catches against him and the others in the slot. White later deleted both tweets.

Despite an offense that struggled for most of the game, the Texans beat the Bills 20-13, winning their third game in a row to get back to .500 on the season. Houston had the chance to take the lead with first and goal from the one-yard-line but had to settle for a field goal. On the next drive, Johnathan Joseph intercepted a Nathan Peterman pass for a touchdown to give the Texans the victory.

Deshaun Watson, who was started in 64.8 percent of ESPN leagues this week, has never scored fewer than 11 fantasy points in any of his previous 11 career NFL starts. He has averaged 24.9 in those 11 and 22.2 this season.

Through three quarters, Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has turned the ball over three times. Watson has two interceptions and has been sacked five times. He's 10-of-18 for 107 yards and all 10 of the Texans' points have come when they've had short fields because of a special teams takeaway.

The Texans have a 10-0 lead over the Bills at halftime, thanks to two big special teams plays. All ten points came on short fields after the Bills muffed a punt and had a punt blocked. Deshaun Watson is 8-of-12 for 88 yards, but threw an interception in the end zone near the end of the half that cost the Texans a chance to take a commanding lead at halftime.
