Ravens officially set to play Deshaun Watson and the Browns in 2022
The Baltimore Ravens are set to play Deshaun Watson and the Cleveland Browns in Week 15 of the 2022 season in what promises to be a tense matchup.
Following news of Watson’s updated 11-game suspension, the Ravens won’t play Watson in Week 7 at home but will square off against the controversial quarterback in Cleveland in December.
The final verdict on Watson comes after an initial ruling that suspended Watson for just six games, though many around the league were hoping for at least a yearlong suspension.
Unfortunately, Baltimore won’t get to face Watson in M&T Bank Stadium, but Ravens fans will be sure to tune in to an intense showdown between Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson at the end of the season.
The Ravens are prepared to face Deshaun Watson’s Browns in Week 15 of 2022
On paper, Jackson and Watson are two of the most talented black quarterbacks in the league with Jackson winning MVP for his 2019 record-breaking campaign and Watson throwing for nearly 5000 yards two seasons ago.
Whereas Watson has attracted nothing but controversy in recent years, Jackson has proven to be an upstanding member of the Ravens franchise and could be considered the more admirable team leader.
With the Ravens’ defense ready to take care of business against a quarterback who hasn’t touched a football since 2020, Jackson will look to wreak havoc on the Browns’ secondary and come away with a victory against a widely despised Cleveland side.
The last stretch of the 2022 season could very well determine the AFC North champion as the Ravens play the Browns in Week 15, the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17, and the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 18.
Despite Watson’s former dominance, the Ravens will be well-prepared to crush the Browns come December and give Watson the thorough beating he deserves.
