The Cleveland Browns finally have their franchise quarterback ready to start, so he is a prediction of the final six games with Deshaun Watson.

The moment a lot of fans have been waiting for is a few days away. Deshaun Watson will be the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns for the final six regular-season games of this season and beyond.

After a much-needed win last Sunday at home against the Bucs in overtime, the Browns suddenly have a pulse for the remainder of the season and a potential playoff berth. The road will certainly not be easy, but there is a path for the Browns to turn this season around.

While a wild card spot is more likely, Cleveland is still in contention for the AFC North title, as crazy as that sound. Over the next six weeks, the Browns will play all three of their divisional rivals, and with wins in those games, they would be 5-1 in the division. Before any of that can play out, the team must go 1-0 this week against the Texans.

Here is a prediction for all six games with Watson as the starting quarterback.

Browns at Texans

While there is no such thing as an “easy” win in the NFL, this will arguably be the Browns’ “easiest” games over the final six weeks. Houston is 1-9-1 on the season and is clearly in the market for the top pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, where they hope to land one of the premier quarterback prospects.

The biggest storyline of this game will of course be the season and team debut of Deshaun Watson. Even if he isn’t in 2020 form right out of the gate, this is a game that Cleveland should be able to dominate. If Watson struggles early on, Nick Chubb can carry the load as the Texans rank dead last in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game at 168.6.

This is also a game in which Myles Garrett can have one of those games that reminds everyone what kind of player he is. Houston doesn’t have the best offensive line and that could mean Garrett and his battering mate Jadeveon Clowney could have a field day against Garrett’s former Texas A&M teammate, Kyle Allen. The Texans’ starting quarterback had a hilarious request of his former teammate by saying “Be nice to me.”
