The Cleveland Browns and their fans have had Week 13 circled on their calendars for quite some time, and it is officially here. Deshaun Watson is in line to officially make his debut with the Browns in Week 13 against his former team in the Houston Texans. This will mark Watson’s first NFL game played in nearly two years.

By now, everyone knows the story surrounding Watson. The star quarterback was accused by over 20 women of sexual assault during massage sessions, which eventually resulted in him picking up a 11-game suspension. Watson sat out the entire 2021 season with the Texans anyways, and was eventually traded to the Browns this past offseason.

Watson will come in and immediately provide hope to a Browns team that is barely holding onto hope that they could qualify for the playoffs this season. With Watson now set to make his debut for the Browns against the Texans, let’s take a look at three bold predictions for him in his first NFL action of the season.

There could be some rust for Watson considering how long it’s been since he has played an NFL game. A lot of things have changed since the last time he’s played, but Watson now finds himself on a team with an extremely potent offense around him. He could be the final piece to help things really take off.

Watson’s first drive won’t be perfect, but that’s what happens when you don’t play a game in nearly two years. The good news is that he will be shaking off the rust against a truly terrible Texans team. Houston is trying to rebuild after moving on from Watson, but the results in their first season have been wildly disappointing.
