1. Deshaun Watson will have his best game with the Browns

Deshaun Watson will be entering his sixth game this season as he’s finally returned from a two-year hiatus. He’s progressively gotten better each week and showcased even more of his strengths in the win last week against the Washington Commanders.

Watson has been able to use his mobility when he’s back in the pocket to keep plays alive and that’s starting to pay off each week. He was sacked several times early in the Washington game but he avoided nearly as many. By the second half, he was able to tire the defensive players out and then found open wide receivers to be able to throw for three touchdowns in the win.

The Steelers haven’t faced Watson yet this season and that gives Cleveland the advantage at quarterback. While the Browns haven’t faced Kenny Pickett yet, the advantage still stays with Watson because he’s a veteran.

There will be enormous pressure on the rookie quarterback to bring home a winning season and potential playoff berth. Pittsburgh hasn’t had a losing season record since 2003 when Bill Cowher was still coach. The Browns on the other hand have no pressure on them because they’re not postseason-bound and will look to ruin the Pittsburgh season.

Watson will look to expose the Steelers early and often and try and even go for a few big plays down the field to receivers Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones. He threw three touchdowns a week ago and I could see him go for four touchdown passes in this one.
