Deshaun Watson expects better results after getting “feel of the game” last week

NFL: DEC 04 Browns at Texans

Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson played in a regular season game last week for the first time since the end of the 2020 season and it was a rocky return to action.

The Browns got a win over the Texans, but they did not score an offensive touchdown and Watson was 12-of-22 for 131 yards and a touchdown against his former team. On Thursday, Watson said that “last week was a lot” in reference to returning to both the field and Houston while also explaining why he thinks that experience sets him up for better results against the Bengals this weekend.

“Because I was able to get the feel of the game, speed of the game,” Watson said, via Scott Petrak of “How defenses adjust, how we’re going to be able to adjust at the same time.  It’s my first time in live action with Kevin. He’s gotta feel how I feel, I gotta feel how he feels and we gotta be able to work on the same page and see the same things through the same lenses.”

The Browns have won five straight over the Bengals and their chances of running the streak to six games will be a lot better if Watson can improve on his first outing as a Brown.

  1. Boy did he fleece the Brownies.

    Horrid QB and a worse person.

    And all guaranteed.

    That’s the difference between a Deshaun Watson and a first ballot HOF QB Russell Wilson.

    Great QB and a better person.

    If Denver would just put some of that team friendly contract money Wilson graciously left on the table to work, it’s Super Bowl(s) time.

  2. Browns are better off with Brisset. Watson is atrocious right now. Still better than Pickett.

  3. Have a good feeling the Bengals are finally going to break that street. I don’t know why but the Browns have just been Joey B’s Kryptonite

  4. I think the Texans were concentrating more on Deshaun not having a good game than they were actually winning the game. Mission accomplished. Hopefully he’s more up to speed this week and the rest of the season.

  5. The Clowns are the perfect fit for Watson. Ethics be damned! Its where’re all overhyped QBs go to die. Criminal owner and QB. It’s a perfect fit.

  6. Well, most starters only play about a quarter in preseason and then have to be ready for week 1. Watson got a complete game in his “preseason” game, so he ought to be exponentially better this week.

    I know the preseason analogy is not perfect, because the other guys have been playing for 3 months, but it’s a close enough parallel to give Browns’ fans some hope.
