The Deshaun Watson Bowl has finally arrived, for better or worse, and the teams involved have five combined wins. Four of those are by the Browns, who rallied late to beat the Bucs in OT last week. There are apparently many believers in the impact of Watson's return as this spread has moved a full point. But if there's a "revenge" angle to be had, it belongs to a Houston team that has plummeted into an abyss since Watson departed. Watson didn't look good in limited pre-season action and there has to be a period of adjustment for this unit to click. Take the points.
Houston is by far the NFL's worst team, with most of its offensive success coming in garbage time. This is a key number, obviously, and I believe it could close higher. Deshaun Watson won't have to do much in his return because the Texans' run defense is so bad (4.9 yards per carry allowed). Nick Chubb should have a massive day. Lay the points.
