That’s what I tell him honestly.

Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson has a knack for making big plays , whether it’s with his arm or his feet.But after the quarterback took a few too many unnecessary hits in a 19-16 overtime win against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, his teammates wondered if maybe he should dial things back a bit.“I be in the huddle telling him to get down,” receiver DeAndre Hopkins said. “I need him. Don’t take those hits unless you … have to. But he’s a warrior. He wants to get in the end zone every time the ball is in his hands.”Watson threw for 375 yards with a touchdown and an interception and ran 10 times for 40 yards for the Texans, who won in overtime for the second straight week.Houston coach Bill O’Brien agreed with Hopkins that Watson is taking too many blows but added that he doesn’t want to cut down on the hits at the cost of changing the way he plays.“We’ve got to do a better job of making sure that he doesn’t take as many,” O’Brien said. “At the same time, it’s a fine line because that’s part of his game. That’s the way he plays the game.”“He e ercepted Watson, who threw under heavy pressure, with 10 seconds left and returned it 15 yards to give Dallas the ball at its 47. Watson was taken down hard by two defenders on the play and was slow to get up. He was checked out in the medical tent after that, but returned to throw a 49-yard pass to Hopkins in overtime that set up the game-winning field goal.He took a huge hit earlier when he tried to scramble for a touchdown near the goal line.“I try to do what’s best for the team,” he said. “I know sometimes what’s best for the team is protecting myself, but when we are down there at the goal line and I’m give him six this season, which is tied for the NFL lead with Cincinnati’s Geno Atkins and Watt’s younger brother, Pittsburgh’s T.J. Watt.Watt has been great in his return from missing most of the last two seasons with injuries and was named AFC defensive player of the month for September last week.The three-time Defensive Player of the Year said he’s feeling pretty good but still has work to do.“I’m still working back from everything and still getting back,” Watt said.NOWHERE TO RUNDallas running back Ezekiel Elliott finished with a season-low 54 yards rushing on 20 carries. It was the third-lowest total for Elliott, who entered the game leading the NFL in yards rushing.Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Houston’s defense made it difficult for Elliott to get anything going.“They loaded it up in there and di get the ball in his hands.” The Chiefs have become very aggressive when it comes to going for it on fourth down. Quarterback Tom Brady realizes that the Patriots may have to take the same approach if they hope to advance to the Super Bowl.“It could be,” Brady told reporters regarding whether the Patriots will be rolling the dice more often on f mes it’s not going as well and you feel like they’ve been stopping us and then you punt.”Brady then questioned his questioners: “How many times did we go for it this year?”Told that they went for it 14 times and converted only seven, Brady said, “Fifty percent. That’s not very good.”It’s definitely not very good in comparison to the Chiefs, who converted 12 of 15 fourth-down opportunities during the regular season and three of four on Saturday against the Colts.“We talk about a lot of scenarios before the game and so forth,” Brady said regarding the thought process for going for it on fourth down. “Whatever the situation presents, I think we’ll try the playoffs are about. . . . They’ve got a great offense. We’re going to need to score a lot of points.”To do that, the Patriots apparently will need to apply a different definition of the term four-down territory.
