The city of Houston has another professional team to root for, the Houston Outlaws professional e-Sports team. The Houston Outlaws gaming team will begin their season this Thursday, and fans can watch all the action on giant screens inside a large warehouse located at The Cannon right here in Houston. Tonight's game will stream and broadcast live from Los Angeles, and anyone can come out and enjoy all the action at the watch party from 5-10PM. Houston based e-sports company, Mainline, is hosting the watch party for tonight's inaugural season opening match between the Houston Outlaws and the Philadelphia Fusion.

Let me give you some details on the makeup of the league. The Overwatch League consists of two divisions, each with six teams, that compete over a five-month season and reward the winning team with a $1 million prize. The Houston Outlaws, owned by Optic Gaming, have a roster that consists of 10 players that will compete in virtual missions against the Philadelphia Fusion this Thursday.

Fans can attend the event for free, and have several food trucks to choose from if they brought their appetites with them. No Label Brewery will also be in attendance and will offer complimentary beer service to those 21 and over. The entire family is encouraged to come out, but minors need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

If you're a gaming fan or just looking for something to do Thursday night, head over to The Cannon and check out the watch party for the Houston Outlaws inaugural match.

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
