Championship matchup between Brady (NFL) and Watson (CFP)

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots won't be the only winners on the field on Sunday when they play the Texans.

Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson is just eight months removed from the College Football Playoff title he won at Clemson. According to the Texans, it's only the second time in the BCS era that the quarterbacks for the reigning NCAA champion and NFL champion have played against each other.

"He was super-talented, obviously, in college," said Brady, who got to see Watson when the teams held joint practices in West Virginia during training camp. "(It) was a lot of fun for me to see young, kind of aspiring players that really want to work hard and play the quarterback position at a high level. He looks like he has all the talent."
