Myles Garrett: It's time to show you can play with big boys

Myles Garrett: It's time to show you can play with big boys

With all that being said, Saints fans still want a win at some point in preseason and games like what we witnessed last night will make even those who place no importance on wins and losses in preseason a little jittery.

Cleveland Browns rookie defensive lineman Myles Garrett made his way to the top of the 2017 NFL Draft by being an impactful pass rusher off the edge.

Brock Osweiler made the start at quarterback. Cody Kessler followed him in the second quarter and hit 5 of 10 passes for 47 yards against the Saints' backups.

The writing for Kizer to eventually be the starter is certainly on the wall, so it will be nice to see what he can do against first-team defenses if Hue Jackson decides to let that happen in the coming weeks. I said I am going to evaluate this after a week and see where we are. "We all know he is talented, as I said before, but there are still some things he needs to do better". As you can imagine, they did have a lot of them since the Browns won only one game past year. "Stood in there and made some plays with his arm". Then there was the 45 yard game winning touchdown thrown with the blitz descending on him on 4th and 2.

Kizer finished 11-for-18 for 184 yards with a TD and no interceptions - and a rating of 114.1.

"I'm in the process of really thinking through that, but it's really going to help us, these six practices in a row before we break camp (Aug. 17)", said Jackson. Erving, who failed miserably at center, was called for a false start and hold on consecutive plays to end Cleveland's first offensive possession. Osweiler was acquired in a trade that many thought was just Cleveland taking on salary.

Garrett Grayson took over at quarterback for the Saints and played into the third quarter.

Saints: QB Ryan Nassib was checked for a head injury in the fourth quarter, but came back for the final drive. The opportunities for Grayson and the Saints offense to get more points on the board were definitely there, but the Browns' pass rush got the best of Grayson in the end.

The rest of his game went about the same way.

"Hopefully, there are a lot of other things other than the long ball that got me here, but I am pretty confident in extending the ball down the field", Kizer said.

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.
