FINAL SCORE: Browns, 20; Saints, 14
CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns hosted the New Orleans Saints in the first game of the 2017 preseason down at FirstEnergy Stadium Thursday night and scored a victory.
They beat the Saints, 20-14.
In the 4th, DeShone Kizer hit Jordan Payton for a 45-yard touchdown, and the Browns took the lead and went on to win it.
Fans were impressed in Berea during camp watching the team’s number one pick go through drills.
Tonight’s game was the first chance for Myles Garrett to face another team’s offensive line and another chance for him to go after another team’s QB. Heading into the game, Garrett had high hopes in trying to establish himself as one of the best young players in the game.
