The honor comes after the team's 27-20 victory over the New England Patriots in Week 11.

Among Texans players, only J.J. Watt has received the player of the week honor more times.

In Sunday's game, "Watson completed 28-of-37 passes (75.7 percent) for 344 yards, two touchdowns, zero interceptions and a 121.9 rating. He also ran for 36 yards and one touchdown on six carries (6.0 avg.). Watson led the conference in passer rating (121.9), completion percentage (75.7) and yards per attempt (9.3), while ranking second in rushing yards among AFC quarterbacks. He led the Texans to consecutive wins against the Patriots for the first time in franchise history and helped Houston become only the second team in the NFL to win consecutive games against the Patriots since 2017 (Kansas City)," the team noted. 

This marks the 49th time a Texan has been named Player of the Week in franchise history and the fourth time this season.
