The Texans enter halftime leading the Saints 14-3, taking advantage of their lone trip to the red zone, which is an area they struggled in last season. But while Deshaun Watson has been impressive (12-of-17 for 129 yards and a touchdown; three carries for 22 yards and a touchdown), he has taken several hard hits and has spent two lengthy stints in the blue medical tent when the defense was on the field.
