Browns vs. Texans: 5 bold predictions in Week 13
2. Deshaun Watson runs and throws a touchdown
As it was mentioned earlier, all eyes will be on Deshaun Watson when the Browns take on the Houston Texans this weekend.
We know there will be a lot of storylines to follow. Some will still be angry that he’s even allowed to play. Some will be focused on what he brings to the table for the Browns. There will also be those who want to see how he handles it all while facing his old team.
Then there’s the nerve factor. Watson has not played a meaningful game since January of 2021, so this is nearly two full years. He will still hear the noise but he can finally put the past behind him — but he will first have to shake off the rust.
Having said that, Watson is an elite talent and it won’t take long for him to find his rhythm. In fact, he’s already made strides in practice and has thoroughly impressed the veterans on offense.
Watson is one of the more gifted quarterbacks in the game and he led the NFL in yardage the last time he played. He can also do plenty of damage with his legs, evidenced by the 1,677 yards and 17 touchdowns he racked up in four seasons with Houston.
In this one, look for him to do damage through the air and on the ground as he scored a touchdown both with his arm and his legs.
