QB play, defense help Browns to preseason win Taylor and Mayfield combine

10 August, 2018, 16:56 | Author: Nicole Aguilar
  • The first episode of HBO's 'Hard Knocks Training Camp with the Cleveland Browns' will premiere on Tuesday night

Perhaps a sign of the changing times in Cleveland, top pick Baker Mayfield was the Browns' second competent quarterback of the evening, following starter Tyrod Taylor. In his National Football League preseason debut, Giants running back Barkley delivered with a 39-yard rush on his first touch. And he'll do it against a Giants team that's got a new coach in Pat Shurmur, a familiar leader in Eli Manning and a rousing crew of weapons headlined by Barkley, who'll get his first opportunity to own the Giants' backfield in East Rutherford. Njoku caught a seam route from Taylor for the first touchdown and was the beneficiary of Mayfield extending a play from 10 yards out.

Callaway, the Browns' fourth-round pick, played despite being cited for marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license. That side of the debate could claim vindication after 2017 third-round pick Davis Webb completed 9-of-22 passes for 70 yards in a dismal performance.

Israel nearing full-scale military campaign with Gaza
Israeli media reports said fire from the gunmen had apparently been part of a Hamas exercise and not directed at Israel. Hamas terrorists responded with a cross-border fusillade that sent Israelis scrambling for air raid shelters.

Mayfield calmly stepped up in the pocket and delivered a low but catchable ball to WR C.J. Board over the middle for a fresh set of downs. With a 100% completion rating during his short playing time, Taylor threw for 99 yards and hit tight end David Njoku for a touchdown to put the Browns up 7-3. The drive included conversions on third and long and fourth and two. Then, Cleveland fans got to see the debut of rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield.

His line ended up at 11-of-20 for 212 yards and two scores.
