The Cleveland Browns are a team in the National Football League that has been desperate to find a franchise quarterback for many years.
Most figured the game would be a blowout, but rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer gave the Browns a spark.
"Oh, absolutely", he said.
The Ravens make it two divisional opponents in two weeks as they stay at home to play the Browns on September 17. Jackson gave his rookie starter some heavy praise on Monday, saying "when I looked up, the game was 21-10, and here we are in the fourth quarter with a chance to win the game late in the game, and that's because of some plays he made". That is what you expect out of your quarterback. The former Notre Dame standout completed 20 of 30 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown, while turning the ball over just once. That is exciting for me. "I think it's exciting for our organization", he went on. He was sacked 7 times, but he added 17 yards and another touchdown on the ground.
Only a tiny bit of the country will be able to see AFC North action as the Baltimore Ravens take on the Cleveland Browns in Week 2 on CBS.
Unfortunately for Cleveland, the Steelers came out on top, but the Brown put up more of a fight than anticipated losing their season opener, 21-18.
