During Deshaun Watson’s six-game return, the Browns’ new signal caller was 99 of 170 for 1,102 yards,
with seven passing touchdown passes and five interceptions.
The most concerning issue for the Browns would be his 58.2 completion percentage.
In 2020, Watson played at an MVP level, completing 70.2% of his passes for 4,823 yards and 33 touchdowns.
Since Watson did not play in 2021 and had to sit out the first 11 games this season,
his accuracy, footwork, mechanics,
and attention to detail were not at the level he exhibited in his young, but outstanding career.
The lack of game repetitions was just the first issue for the new Browns quarterback when he returned Week 13 against the Texans.
He was in a new scheme that had been focused on the power run game with play action from underneath center.
In 2020, Watson was in the shotgun 82% of the time and Houston was ranked second-to-last in rushing attempts, rushing touchdowns, and runs over 20 yards.
