Deshaun Watson completed 22-of-40 passes for 235 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Browns’ 26-22, Week 2 loss to the Steelers, adding 22 yards on six carries.
Watson’s night started off with a pick-six on the first offensive play run from scrimmage and didn’t get much better throughout the rest of the game. He also lost two fumbles, one of which was scooped up by T.J. Watt and returned for a touchdown, and was sacked six times while under unrelenting pressure. The performance was truly tragic considering how well the Cleveland defense played, holding the Pittsburgh offense to just one offensive touchdown and two field goals amidst consistent short fields. The Browns appeared destined for their first 2-0 start to a season since 1993 but ultimately fell short. Watson will need to regroup quickly particularly considering the loss of All-World running back Nick Chubb, who suffered a significant knee injury and is likely out for the remainder of the season.
