Hue Jackson says QB race still wide open

Studs and duds from Cleveland's preseason win over Saints

Studs and duds from Cleveland's preseason win over Saints

The Browns are listed as a 3-point favorite by Bovada.lv as they host the Saints Thursday night in the preseason opener for both squads.

Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, the first overall pick in the 2017 draft, made two run stops in the first quarter - one when he tackled Daniel Lasco for a 2-yard loss and one when he stopped rookie Alvin Kamara at the line of scrimmage.

Second year quarterback Cody Kessler played the majority of the second quarter. At least the Browns choosing to defer to start the game ended with Kizer getting a whole half and what the team hopes will be a confidence-building touchdown to win it.

"He held his own", coach Hue Jackson said. Let's see it for what it was.

Kizer's next opportunity to impress will come when the Browns host the New York Giants on August 21. He said calling plays in the huddle continues to be an occasional challenge, as well as some pre-snap reads.

The play came on a fourth-and-2 and followed a 22-yard completion from Kizer to back-up wide receiver Rannell Hall that almost offset the damage done by a holding penalty called on Browns defensive lineman Spencer Drango two plays earlier. In his half of action, he completed 11-of-18 passes for 184 yards and a touchdown.

A later fumble from New Orleans quarterback Garrett Grayson led to a 1 yard TD plunge from Cleveland running back Matthew Dayes.

Jaguars 31, Patriots 24: Chad Henne hit Keelan Cole on a 97-yard touchdown pass, Corey Grant scored on a 79-yard run and Jacksonville feasted on a Patriots lineup without Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski - or much defense at all - to beat the defending National Football League champions.

"I don't mind it at all", Garrett said. Jim and I will also give our takes on which players helped and/or hurt themselves in the game.

The Saints drove 50 yards and got a touchdown early in the fourth quarter when quarterback Ryan Nassib hit Tommylee Lewis with a two yard touchdown pass and a two point conversion gave the Saints a 14-7 lead.

The Saints' defense is still likely to be their downfall in the division race, but Drew Brees has never played with a back of Peterson's quality, so they could be more risky than usual. "I think there are some things we have to get cleaned up with him really quickly". I was expecting our team to compete and have an opportunity to win the game.

Coley started every game in four years at FAU and left as one of the most productive players in school history, totaling 195 tackles, 12.5 sacks and an interception.
