Texas has 12 FBS teams. Each week we will rank them based on season-long performance, the prior game, and success relative to their level. These are the rankings after Nov. 4 games. 

No. 12: UTEP

The beating goes on for the winless Miners. North Texas took them to the woodshed.

No. 11: Rice

The Owls at least put up a fight against Southern Miss. Alas, it was still a losing effort.

No. 10: Texas State

The Bobcats are playing better football, but lost 33-30 to Georgia State. At least it wasn't George Strait.

No. 9: Baylor

The Bears will probably have to be happy with that win over Kansas. They were competitive against Tech, but could not get the job done.

No. 8: UTSA

The Road Runners lost at home to improving UAB. They would fall on this list except there is nowhere to go with the teams behind them being putrid.

No. 7: North Texas 

The Mean Green are likely headed for the C-USA championship game and are playing solid football.

No. 6: Texas Tech

The Red Raiders got back to .500 with a win over lowly Baylor and need one more victory for bowl eligibility.

No. 5: SMU

For a second straight week, the Ponies threw a scare into a superior opponent, but came up short in a 43-40 loss to Navy.

No. 4: Texas

The Longhorns are now 5-5 after taking out woeful Kansas. A trip to West Virginia and Tech remain as the Horns seek bowl eligibility.

No. 3: Houston

The Cougars were off. Tulane and Navy are left on the schedule.

No. 2: Texas A&M

The Aggies thumped New Mexico, but then again, they were supposed to thump New Mexico. 

No. 1: TCU

The Frogs dropped their second of the season, losing to OU and all but killing their playoff hopes.

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.
