The 27-year-old athlete was suspended for 11 games in lieu of the sexual harassment and assault lawsuits he faced. According to ESPN, Attorney Tony Buzbee stated that ten of Watson's accusers will be at NRG Stadium to  “make a statement” to the football player. The other women want nothing to do with him. "Some of my clients asked to go," Buzbee said. He will also attend the game.

"They thought it important to make clear that they are still here and that they matter."

Some of the women really want to attend the game "to kind of make the statement, 'Hey, we're still here. We matter. Our voice was heard, and this is not something that's over. [Sexual harassment and assault] happen every day in the United States,'" he continued.

The women declined to comment ahead of Sunday's game, he said.

On November 27, Watson posted a seemingly celebratory status on his IG.
