Watson's emergence helps ease loss of Watt for Texans

HOUSTON (AP) Without J.J. Watt for the second straight season, a new star has emerged for the Houston Texans. Rookie Deshaun Watson has this team long known for its defense rolling on offense.

Though the Texans are 3-3 entering their bye, the development of Watson has them encouraged that they've finally found the player to end their years of quarterback woes and help the franchise take the next step.

Romeo Crennel, Houston's 70-year-old assistant head coach who has worked in the NFL since 1981, says Watson has the "it factor."
