Patriots Week 3 bold predictions: Watt will force two tip-ball interceptions
Watt will compensate for not registering a single sack in this game by using his basketball ability. Expect a handful of tipped balls by Watt, two of which will lead to interceptions.
There are always growing pains for rookie quarterbacks in their first start. For Brissett, his struggles in this game will stem out of making his release a tad bit too obvious for an expert pass-tipper like Watt.
Having three, four balls bounce up in the air will translate into a pair of easy interceptions for Texans defensive backs. Andre Hal, the ball hawk of the secondary, will be on the receiving end of one of these tipped passes.
Both of these turnovers will lead to touchdowns, swinging the momentum in the second quarter in favor of Houston.
No matter how you slice it, Watt is the defensive equivalent of Rob Gronkowski in that his skill set is so multi-faceted.
