Another week, another incredible performance by Houston's Houdini Deshaun Watson.

It was one of the many times Watson was in the grasp of a Jacksonville defender, or two, and came out with positive yardage. His poise is at an all-time high and he did this without left tackle Laremy Tunsil.

Watson was quite the field general getting the Texans into plays that consistently moved the ball and then impressing with his magic act against the Jags defense. He was nearly perfect in the second half as he had just one incomplete pass and jumped over another human being with ease on a almost touchdown run.

One of the most impressive pieces of Watson's game in London is the patience he displays when previously he would be overly-aggressive. One drop back where he was clean for seconds after seconds, and he continued to survey the field until a safe big play popped up. Two seasons ago and even last season Watson would often take the risky shot. Other times he would take the easy gain. He's got the perfect balance of patience and aggression right now.

The highlight reel plays are impressive, sure, but Watson has always made those. The most impressive part of his game is the poise and knowledge he plays with now. He has a deep understanding of defenses and sees things he missed early in his career. The Texans have gotten deep into the playbook this year too executing at an extremely high level.

Watson is absolutely in the MVP discussion.

Thursday on First Take, Stephen A. Smith, Domonique Foxworth, and Max Kellerman debated which QB was more likely to become the face of the NFL.

The QB that wins the game will clearly get a boost, but how these teams perform in the playoffs will certainly play a factor as well.

Check out the video and see if you agree with Stephen A. Smith's points about Watson.
