Texans' Deshaun Watson Says the Popeyes Spicy Chicken Sandwich Was The Key to Getting Healthy

Deshaun Watson led the Houston Texans to a 26-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in London. In front of 84,711 fans at Wembley Stadium, Watson threw for 201 yards, completing 78.6% of his passes with two touchdowns. 

The biggest story of the game was the health of Watson's left eye after he was kicked by an Oakland Raiders defender in their win last week. Watson protected his eye the entire week with a visor on his helmet but opted not to wear it during the game. 

Watson credited the healing of his eye and the win to something that many did not expect.

On the field to NFL Network after the win. Watson was asked about his injured eye and how it felt throughout the game. 

"The eye is great," Watson explained. "You know I got some. I can tell you the key, the key is, it was the Popeyes spicy chicken sandwiches that I ate this week. That helped the eye."

That was a nice plug for the chicken sandwich.
