Houston Texans rookie Deshaun Watson is taking the NFL by storm with his football abilities and exceptional persona off the field with fans, his teammates and the Houston community.

Watson passed for 283 yards with five total touchdowns (4 passing, 1 rushing) in a 57-14 win over the Titans.

The five total touchdowns tied an NFL record for rookies and for those statistical achievements, his football cleats that were worn during the game are currently on display at Pro Football's Hall-of-Fame in Canton, Ohio.

The display reads as follows: Houston rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson wore these cleats when he passed for 283 yards, four TDs and a rushing TD in a 57-14 win against Tennessee on Oct. 1, 2017. The 57 points were the most in franchise history and marked the third-highest total with a rookie quarterback. He joined Fran Tarkenton as the only rookie quarterback with at least 250 passing yards, four touchdown passes and a rushing touchdown in a game. Watson is the only rookie quarterback with at least seven passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in his first four games.

For the season, Watson has completed 90-for-145 passes for 1,072 yards and 12 passing touchdowns with four interceptions. On the ground, he has rushed for 179 yards and two scores. He is currently second in the NFL in passing touchdowns with 12 behind Aaron Rodgers. Watson's 100.7 passer rating is seventh best in the NFL.

According to ESPN, Deshaun Watson's 107.10 fantasy points in his first four career starts is the most by any quarterback since at least 1950.
