Cleveland Browns vs. New York Giants in Thursday preseason battle

Justin GreeneAug 11, 2018

The Cleveland Browns will open their preseason against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium Thursday night.

Baker Mayfield is on the board.

Cleveland selected Mayfield out of Oklahoma with the No. 1 pick in the 2018 draft.

Mostly notably, the additions of veterans Tyrod Taylor and Jarvis Landry.

Mayfield was up next and, following a three-and-out, settled in on his second series, finding Rashard Higgins with a pretty back-shoulder throw on the sideline for a 26-yard gain. Then, he picked up a third-and-six and a fourth-and-two, both with his legs.

It was all so familiar for Sooners fans and novel for Clevelanders.

Mayfield returned in the third quarter to spin additional magic, rolling to his right on a third-and-7 from his own 22 to find rookie Antonio Callaway along the sideline for 24 yards.

It was a good drive for Mayfield and the Browns.

Martin also caught two passes for 11 yards to make for an impressive debut.

Barkley had four more carries, which only resulted in four yards gained, after his big play. Taylor will start under center, though not expected to stay in the game long. Even if the answer is "not much" because it's the NFL preseason, we can still take solace in knowing that this is the return of football and those moments with those players are nearing closer.
