No. 1: Deshaun Watson, QB

This is what Browns fans have been waiting for this season and they’re going to get their chance to watch Deshaun Watson for the first time in the orange and brown this Sunday.

After months of waiting to get to this point, it will be good to finally witness for the first time what the future of the team will look like. There are a lot of outspoken opinions on both sides of the aisle regarding the quarterback’s return — and even his status as an NFL player.

Some won’t watch or attend games due to the ugly situation surrounding Watson off the field. Wherever you stand on the topic, he will be playing quarterback for your favorite team on Sunday, and the franchise believes he’s the piece they’ve been missing.

Watson’s career to this point will show a player that has shown incredible promise, which is why he landed a $230 million deal — fully guaranteed at that.

The Browns have never had an elite quarterback like Watson — not in the modern area anyway. With his bounce back there will likely be a period of time for the quarterback to get back to being the same type of elite quarterback he was before he left the game for the 2021 season and most of this year.

But what we will all be treated to in the end could end up being routine postseason appearances for Cleveland and ultimately a Super Bowl win. Enjoy watching the game on Sunday and especially with Watson, Emerson, and Chubb leading the way.
