Baker Mayfield’s First NFL Preseason Game Is Over

  • DavisWebb takes a snap from the Giants' new-look offensive line in Thursday night's preseason opener

Saquon Barkley knows how to deliver.

Head coach and play-caller Pat Shurmur wasted no time giving Giants fans what they wanted to see.

The first preseason game for the Cleveland Browns is winding to a close.

That connection wasn't finished as Mayfield opened the fourth quarter with a 54-yard touchdown lob to the fourth-round wideout, who finished with 87 yards off three catches and looked good doing it. The Browns flew to East Rutherford, New Jersey to take on the New York Giants and an offseason of hype finally hit the field. The Giants had only two longer runs all of last season - both by Orleans Darkwa. That's the vision as well, making sure I have the windows to throw in.

The one highlight was the one highlight for Barkley.

The Penn State running back finished with 43 yards on five carries. Barkley was pushed out of bounds after rushing for 39 yards. Barkley is a gifted pass-catcher but Eli Manning did not target him once, which will not be the case once the real games begin. He continued marching the offense, twice keeping the drive alive with his legs - on third-and-6 and fourth-and-2 - to set up Cleveland with first-and-goal. He also said that he talks with Beckham a lot. "The natural thing for me is to try and find throwing lanes".

In addition to his rushes, Mayfield completed two passes of more than 20 yards on the drive.

The starting defense had no answers once the Browns, on their second possession, went to a hurry-up, no-huddle attack. The first, a 26-yard sideline throw to Rashard Higgins, came off play action. After that, it was easy pickings for Njoku, who ran past Ogletree for an uncontested 36-yard touchdown pass from Tyrod Taylor.

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