Browns kick off preseason against Giants

Baker Mayfield Browns

It might only be the preseason, but one game in, Baker Mayfield showed why the Cleveland Browns made him the No. 1 overall pick in this year's National Football League draft.

The preseason can never be taken too seriously, but by all accounts, Mayfield had an exceptional debut on Thursday night against the New York Giants.

Saquon Barkley wasn't the only running back from Pennsylvania to flash for the New York Giants Thursday. That's unlikely, as Hue Jackson and John Dorsey have up until now been steadfast in the support of the starter, Taylor, who couldn't have been more efficient in his own Browns debut. "I didn't reveal that to you, but I never meant to", Shurmur told reporters after the game. After that, it was easy pickings for Njoku, who ran past Ogletree for an uncontested 36-yard touchdown pass from Tyrod Taylor. "There's things guys need to settle down and get comfortable with everything, but I thought there were some good things, got a scoring drive, but definitely after watching, I think you can see a lot of things we need to improve on".

According to ESPN, all fans inside the stadium were able to place bets on their phones with no restrictions through DraftKings until late in the fourth quarter when the Browns had mounted a 10 point lead. However, in his second series on the field, Mayfield connected with tight end David Njoku for a short touchdown pass.

On Aug. 10, 2017, Cleveland's DeShone Kizer, a second-round pick out of Notre Dame, completed 11 of 18 passes for 184 yards and a touchdown as the Browns beat New Orleans 20-14.
