It is Saturday, December 3, 2022, and the Cleveland Browns are preparing to travel to Houston for their Week 13 game against the Houston Texans.
Because Deshaun Watson is returning to Houston in his debut with the Browns, there will be plenty of intrigued NFL fans following this game.

Fan and player news pertaining to the game are the stories in Saturday’s edition of Browns Nation news and notes.
1. Space City Dawg Pound Gets Ready To Welcome Browns

Given their geographical proximity to the Texans, these fans have a unique perspective on the Deshaun Watson situation as they heard a lot about him before and after he joined their favorite team.
WKYC caught up with the Space City Dawg Pound president Cory Hammer to get his thoughts about Watson.
“We were not too thrilled with the controversy that came with him.”
His remarks also highlighted the loyalty of Browns fans when he said:
“Most of our die-hard fans are just going to support whoever’s under center.”
Given the Texans’ disappointing season and the fact that Watson is making his debut, Hammer believes many Browns fans will be in attendance.
Nick Pedone corroborates Hammer’s theory about the attendance for Sunday’s game.
Just talked with a member of the Houston Texans media.
Going to be a lot of #Browns fans in Texas on Sunday. Potentially even Texans fans cheering for the Browns.
