CINCINNATI — The AFC North continues to be the most polarizing division in the NFL.
Not only are all four teams above .500, but the 6-3 Cleveland Browns announced on Wednesday that star quarterback Deshaun Watson will undergo season-ending surgery on his throwing shoulder.
He suffered the injury in Cleveland’s 33-31 win over Baltimore according to the statement from the team.
The Bengals play the Ravens on Thursday night. Cincinnati also plays Cleveland in Week 18 and has two matchups with the Steelers on their schedule.
The Browns play Pittsburgh on Sunday in Cleveland.
The two wide receivers combined for 15 catches, 169 yards, and one touchdown on Sunday in the 31-17 road win over San Francisco.
Burrow took a nasty hit in the game from Fred Warner and his reaction stood out to Chase.
“I actually made a comment on that play,” Chase said. “I was like, ‘Damn that’s a tough motherf*****.’
A quarterback taking hits like that from linebackers. All-Pro linebacker at that. One of the best linebackers in the league.
So take a hit like that, you bounce right up and keep going. That’s what he does.”
