Luke Kuechly. The Carolina Panthers linebacker was the 2012 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year and the 2013 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Don't say it's a completely meaningless preseason game either, as Watson went 15-for-25 for 179 yard to go along with his 24 rushing yards in extensive action against Carolina. There were plenty of storylines heading into this game as well.

Watson used his elusiveness to open passing lanes for his throws downfield, but nonetheless was sacked on three occasions and after taking a sack on successive plays during the fourth quarter, was taken out of the game and replaced with Brandon Weeden.

Next week Houston will face the New England Patriots.

Boulware got some special teams work early in the game but didn't line up on defense until late in the contest.

Locked in a camp battle with Tom Savage, Watson didn't see the field until the second quarter, working mostly with the second unit. In the Panthers first drive out of the half, he found him on the near sideline for a 29-yard completion, and capped off the drive with an 8-yard pass to him in the back of the end zone.

That will serve him well as he continues to make his case to the Panthers, but where he goes from here is still an unknown.

Scattered rain showers expected for the midstate this weekend
Thursday was another comfortable August day across central North Carolina, something we don't see too often this time of year. Thursday , NWS said radar was tracking a storm coming onshore in West Michigan that was moving east at 15 miles per hour .

It's looking like QB Tom Savage will be leading the Texans on offense in 2017, but Houston could also turn to rookie arm Deshaun Watson, who was a first-round draft pick this year. His first pass was a six yard completion to tight end RaShaun Allen. Anderson was fantastic, finishing 4-for-5 for 76 yards and a picture-perfect back-shoulder fade touchdown to the suddenly svelte Kelvin Benjamin. "We're always in at the same time in preseason, so we always have great chemistry whenever we're in there together".

Watson didn't exactly begin his unofficial career by going all Dak Prescott 2016 on the Panthers. "To me, it was a typical first preseason game". He was a little quick to escape the pocket but, in his defense, it was collapsing pretty quick as well. He marched the Texans down the field on a 15-play, 75-yard drive, carving up the Panthers with quick, efficient passes.

Lamar Miller seemed to struggle a bit but he was very limited so it's not a big deal, really. "Overall, the first half, the ones definitely had a good showing".

D'Onta ForemanHouston Texans running back D'Onta Foreman. He rushed for four yards, then five yards, then his final rush was for no gain.

It was in the third quarter where Watson had his best performance of the game.

The lone game on the National Football League preseason docket tonight is expected to be a close, low-scoring affair according to oddsmakers. His damage did come against the Houston backups.
