Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes have known each other since they were teenagers , they entered the NFL together and were both first-round picks in 2017, and they were Pro Bowl teammates on Sunday. Watson hopes he and Mahomes have a long future as friendly rivals.Watson said on that he’d like to picture himself and Mahomes playing as many great games against each other as Peyton Manning and Tom Brady did through the years.“We’ve been boys since coming out of high school, we’ve trained together all through college,” Watson said. “It’s something we’ve talked about for a long, long time and now we have an opportunity to do it. I’m looking forward to all the big games. Of course we’re both in the AFC so hopefully we get that Peyton and Tom Brady type of match each and every year.”The Texans and Chiefs didn’t play in the 2018 season Martinas Rankin Jersey White , but they do play in 2019, and they may play each other many times, both in the regular season and the postseason, for years to come. Watson and Mahomes may have the league’s next great quarterback rivalry. The Texans traded for wide receiver Demaryius Thomas in October after losing Will Fuller for the season to a knee injury and the veteran helped them to a playoff berth, but he won’t be around to help them try to advance in the postseason.Thomas tore his Achilles in Sunday’s 32-30 loss to the Eagles. He had聽23 catches for 275 yards and two touchdowns since coming to the team Julien Davenport Jersey White , but wideout DeAndre Hopkins said the impact of his loss will be felt off the field as well.“He has not been here that long, but everyone looks up to him,” Hopkins said. “Everyone asks him questions, not just about football, but life questions. He is a big brother to a lot of guys in the locker room. When he came here Justin Reid Jersey White , everyone was picking his brain. For him to go out the way that he did, I hated that for him. Hopefully, he heals fast and we overcome this tough loss.”Rookie Vyncint Smith took over for Thomas and caught his first NFL touchdown from Deshaun Watson in the second half of the game.
