Storylines to Watch
- Eyes Still on Deshaun - As has been the case since he debuted for the Browns in Week 13, QB Deshaun Watson will look to take another step toward improvement in his fifth start of the season. Watson completed 15 of 31 passes for 135 yards and one interception while rushing for one touchdown in the coldest regular season home game in Browns history last week against the Saints.
- Wentz Starts - The Commanders made a switch at QB this week and will start Carson Wentz over Taylor Heinicke, who had started the last nine games.
- Consistent Defense - The Browns have held opponents to 23 or less points in their last five games. After starting the season near the bottom of the league in defensive efficiency, they've moved up to 16th (335.9 yards allowed per game) and will look to continue their climb against Washington.
