The Cleveland Browns are in the thick of the playoff race, and based on their record, have a good a shot as any team of winning the AFC North. They are sitting at 6-3 with some impressive wins on their track record, and currently have a 69% chance of qualifying for the NFL postseason. But they had some tough injury news come their way this week when it was revealed that quarterback Deshaun Watson would be undergoing shoulder surgery, effectively ending his season.
NFL: Browns Could Look To Sign A Veteran QB
Deshaun Watson fractured his shoulder in the second quarter of Sunday’s game vs Baltimore, per Browns’ GM Andrew Berry.

Watson hadn’t played all that well to begin with. There was hope for improvement after last season’s six-game slate that he played at the end of the year, but his statistics were essentially the same through six games in 2023. His year will end with a stat line of 1,115 yards, 7 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions.
The team has largely been led by its defense, which ranks first in the league in yards allowed. In most games, the offense has to do just enough to make the defense’s efforts worthwhile, and they’ve been rather successful so far. But the quarterbacks left on Cleveland’s roster aren’t exactly the kind of guys you want leading your team on a playoff push in a brutally tough division. Dorian Thompson-Robinson is in his first NFL season, and PJ Walker had 6 touchdowns and 16 interceptions in his career.
