Baker Mayfield shines during his Browns debut

Saquon Barkley's thrilling 39-yard rush in first NFL carry (Video)

No. 2 overall pick Saquon Barkley made a splash in his National Football League debut Thursday night. He appeared finished by the second quarter; he had four total carries for 43 yards.

Since he was drafted with the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, there has been a lot of good things about what Baker Mayfield has done with the Cleveland Browns. However, in his second series on the field, Mayfield connected with tight end David Njoku for a short touchdown pass. Taylor's first completion was a 32-yarder to Jarvis Landry, who apparently did something other than "bless" Janoris Jenkins afterward, as the newest "Hard Knocks" star drew a 15-yard taunting penalty. 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.

Leading up to Thursday night's preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns, there was an implication that New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. might suit up for the first time since Week 5 of last season.

He hit 11 of 20 passes for 212 yards, didn't turn the ball over and converted two fourth-down plays with his feet. Taylor will start under center, though not expected to stay in the game long.

It's only one preseason game, but there were plenty of reasons to be hopeful.
