  • Browns insider explains why Baker Mayfield has no chance to win starting job

Not only are these two teams trying to forget what happened a season ago and turn things around, but the talent on the field is hugely fascinating.

Saquon Barkley wasted no time in backing up all the hype he's generated this National Football League offseason.

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 this quick video breakdown, I explained down how the Giants ran inside zone out of single-back formation and how Barkley paired vision and patience to exploit the Browns' defense.

They kick off the 2018 preseason with their first game Thursday night at 7 p.m. against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.

According to ESPN, all fans inside the stadium were able to place bets on their phones with no restrictions through DraftKings until late in the fourth quarter when the Browns had mounted a 10 point lead. On the first series of the fourth quarter, he hit fellow rookie Antonio Callaway on third and four for a 54-yard touchdown pass.

Mayfield closed 11-of-20 for 212 yards with two scores on the night.
