Remarkably, this marked the first time Watson has ever lost by more than two scores during his life, and he's sure to bounce back with three upcoming home games (and hopefully he gets Will Fuller back soon)…DeAndre Hopkins, who was blatantly interfered with in the end zone during the first quarter but no flag was thrown, saw another healthy 12 targets but failed to score yet again. He's on pace for six touchdowns this season after scoring 24 over the last two years (and Kenny Stills hasn't picked up any of the slack).
