Pick 6 launched Deshaun Watson's night. Watson threw wide on the Cleveland Browns' first play of Monday night's game, and Alex Highsmith hauled it in for a Steelers score.
Watson's Browns career wasn't defined by that play. Watson's Browns career was marred by off-field issues, an 11-game ban, and uncertainty over a ridiculously guaranteed deal.
Watson was supposed to be better than he has been, and Nick Chubb's season-ending knee injury against the Pittsburgh Steelers has heightened the scrutiny.
Watson received a guaranteed $230 million from the Browns. His salary was based on his franchise-saving potential. Hasn't been that. Browns need Watson to carry the offense, but they don't know if he can.
The defense made a big stop with three minutes left to give the Browns one last chance. Watson moved offense. Watson capitalized on the Steelers' deep play.
Watson threw incomplete on fourth-and-10. Browns receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones may have been held but not called, but they can't blame that. The offense couldn't overcome a non-call on Monday night.
The Browns traded draft selections, spent a lot for a contract extension, and endured repeated sexual misconduct allegations to obtain Watson. The Browns still haven't gotten a good quarterback.
