Deshaun Watson is a human highlight reel and has had some memorable moments. Now the new Cleveland Browns quarterback will look to add a few more this year
Deshaun Watson jumped onto the college football scene back in 2014. He began his career by helping his college team the Clemson Tigers upend North Carolina Tar Heels. From that point forward and now into the NFL, Watson has proved to be a human highlight reel.
With Watson the new face of the Cleveland Browns franchise we thought we’d take a moment on this Memorial Day weekend to look back at some of the more memorable moments of Watson’s football career.
We’ll look back at a couple of college games and mix in a few NFL games that certainly showcase his talents and why the Browns are thrilled to have him join the team. He is a difference-maker on the playing field and Cleveland could be a lot closer to a Super Bowl than they have ever imagined.
Deshaun Watson vs. Baker Mayfield 2015 College Playoff Game
It was the college football semifinal game that pitted Deshaun Watson against Baker Mayfield. Clemson was coming into the game on a 16-game winning streak dating back to Watson’s freshman season. The Oklahoma Sooners were Mayfield’s team and were an offensive machine that year.
But in this game, Watson got the last laugh as he helped the Tigers outscore the Sooners 21-0 in the second half en route to a 37-17 win.
Watson was everywhere offensively. He threw for 187 yards and two scores but also ran the ball for 145 yards. One of those scampers was from his own end zone and took the ball up to midfield as he ran past defenders.
