Cleveland Browns: Preseason Week 1 instant reactions

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

There's no doubt that topic will come up again after Mayfield used the Giants to add to the dazzling highlight reel that made him a Heisman Trophy victor at Oklahoma. "It was the first time going on the road with a new team, first time in the NFL".

The pro-running back crowd could have declared checkmate after Barkley broke off a dazzling 39-yard run on the first touch of a career that is beginning with Hall of Fame hype. He showed the right mix of decisiveness and deliberation with his delivery. Mayfield hit fourth-round pick Antonio Callaway over the middle for a 54-yard touchdown in the third quarter. The Cleveland Browns are ready for the preseason action.

Saudi Arabia appears to threaten Canada with 9/11-style attack
There could be a sentiment among allies that, "Finally the Trudeau government is getting poked back in the eye by the Saudis". Freeland would only tell reporters Monday that the Canadian ambassador is "fine" and would not disclose his location.

Callaway, the Browns' fourth-round pick, played despite being cited for marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license. He also carried the ball three times for 13 yards. That side of the debate could claim vindication after 2017 third-round pick Davis Webb completed 9-of-22 passes for 70 yards in a dismal performance. Taylor is looking great as the starter for now and Mayfield is looking fine as the starter for later.

It marked the second touchdown of the game for Mayfield and pushed his line up to 212 passing yards and two passing touchdowns on 20 attempts. That's a good problem they should enjoy, for a change - and they should continue to avoid creating an unnecessary problem.
