It seems very curious that Watson’s first game back from suspension will be against his former team, the Houston Texans, but Cincinnati will indeed face the controversial quarterback during the upcoming season.

Watson recorded 4,823 passing yards and 33 touchdowns in 16 games for the Texans, his best season in the NFL by far. He joined the Browns earlier this offseason and has since been a lightning rod of controversy, especially given how much he’s wavered on apologizing for his past decisions.

With Joe Burrow coming off a triumphant second year and with the young and talented core of the Bengals’ 2021 squad still very much intact, Cincinnati has all the pieces to make another Super Bowl appearance this season.
