In a league full of parity, not every week is going to be kind to some NFL teams.
But, there were a few players that struggled in Week 13.
One player was making his season debut, while the other is in the MVP conversation.
Here are the two players that had forgettable performances on Sunday.
Deshaun Watson, Quarterback, Cleveland Browns
The highly anticipated debut of Deshaun Watson with the Cleveland Browns did not go as planned on Sunday.
Even though the Browns were able to beat the worst team in football 27-14, Watson struggled to do anything.
He attempted 22 passes in the game and completed 12 of them for 131 yards and one interception.
Watson has not played in an NFL game since 2020, so the rust was expected.
Facing his former team, there is no question Watson wanted to play better.
His interception in the endzone was particularly concerning as he threw the ball straight to a Texan.

It is safe to assume Watson will improve the more he plays, but this was not a good season debut.
Tua Tagovailoa, Quarterback, Miami Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins have been one of the most impressive offenses in the NFL this season.
But, they had a forgettable performance on Sunday.
One reason why was the struggles of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Facing an elite defense in the San Francisco 49ers, Tua committed three turnovers.

Other than a 75-yard touchdown pass on his first pass of the game, he only had one good drive all game.
This was a disappointing game for a team that has Super Bowl aspirations.
Tagovailoa will need to be much better when the Dolphins face the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14.
