One of the league’s best trends is now taking place in Detroit, where Lions fans are thanking Texas quarterback Deshaun Watson for his role in Thursday’s victory. Watson was almost flawless at Thanksgiving, with a multi-goal win over Detroit that ignited the kick-off of head coach Matt Patricia and GM Bob Quinn.
The Lions cleaned the house on Saturday.
Just like the Bills fans who donated Andy Dalton’s charity after the then Bengals QB helped them get into the playoffs, and just as the Bills fans (again) gave their grandmother respect to Josh Allen’s charity, now it’s the Lions fans.
In recognition of Watson’s four-touch performance, countless Lions fans gave it to the Deshaun Watson Foundation – a total of $ 1,070 on Sunday morning. The Watson Foundation “serves educational, health, housing and other charitable purposes that support families and youth in underperformed communities,” his website writes.
Many fans offered $ 13 for Patricia’s 13 wins against 29 losses.
Watson will negotiate the donation, providing the first 100 with a free lunch at Lefty’s Restaurant in Detroit, the same restaurant that served the Texas prelude on Wednesday night. Watson is a major shareholder in Lefty’s, a casual dining franchise that opens in Houston in mid-December. This is the way to say thank you.
