Browns kick off preseason against Giants

The Browns might not be counting on too much from Mayfield early on as veteran Tyrod Taylor is Cleveland's starter, but NY expects a huge boost for its offense from the Penn State running back.

With the first preseason contest behind us, what can Browns fans come away with for this game?

Barkley took off for a 39-yard carry on the first play, and in the second quarter, Mayfield threw his first touchdown pass to David Njoku.

"I put it up there for him and he made a great play", Mayfield said. On the very next set of downs, the former Oklahoma QB again scrambled to convert a 4th-and-2. "The natural thing for me is to try and find throwing lanes". The second, Mayfield stepped up in the pocket for a 21-yard completion to fellow rookie Antonio Callaway. After taking over with 1:31 to play in the first quarter, the No. 1 overall pick led the Browns offense into the fourth quarter. Before he left, he hit Callaway with another dart on a slant that the speedy fourth-rounder turned into a 54-yard catch-and-run score. Mayfield finished 11-for-20, with 212 yards and two touchdowns. At the time he exited, Mayfield was also tied for the team lead in rushing yards (13, on three attempts).

Given how many times coach Hue Jackson has been asked about his starter for 2018, and how he has consistently answered with Taylor, there's enough for a "Hard Knocks" spinoff show.

What looked to be a modest gain up the middle turned into something much more, as Barkley used a sharp cut to elude cornerback Denzel Ward - one of three defenders to swing and miss - and then scooted to his right, sprinting up the sideline, stopped only when safety Damarious Randall pushed him out of bounds.

Still, Mayfield seems to be adjusting to the National Football League well.
