National Football League notes: Browns pick Kizer as starting QB

"I think he's doing everything that he needs to do to prepare himself for this opportunity". He's going to learn a lot and gain a lot of experience and the only way you get that is by playing.

Cleveland Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer (7) runs with the ball as New York Giants defensive tackle Damon Harrison (98) chases during the first half at FirstEnergy Stadium. He has to earn a right from (the veterans). "I think, in general, the whole defense feels better and more comfortable". He will be the first Browns rookie to start the season under center since Brandon Weeden in 2012. However, Thomas said he was not disappointed that Osweiler was benched for Kizer against the Buccaneers.

Jackson informed the quarterbacks of his decision Wednesday morning.

Kizer had been splitting reps with the No. 1 unit in practice since June but entered training camp third in the quarterback order.

Sky's Home Affairs Correspondent Mark White said: 'We have seen incidents unfold outside Buckingham Palace in the past. A Reuters witness near the scene said police had cordoned off a wide area around the palace for security.

He's led three touchdown drives and a field goal drive in 3οΎ½ quarters, including a 45-yard winning touchdown pass in the opener against the Saints. He's been sacked five times.

In two preseason games, Kizer has completed 19 of his 31 attempts for 258 yards with one passing touchdown, a rushing score and four drives that ended in points for the Browns, which was starkly different from the other quarterbacks on the roster. Those are the things he has to continue to grow on, but I thought he managed the team well. The receiver, who finished with four catches on the night for 66 yards, laid out for the ball and made a great catch - the kind the Browns are going to need to see more of if Kizer is to be successful. The organizational approach since he was drafted was to make sure he wasn't rushed into action before he was ready. "I decided it was a time for me to join my brothers who decide to take a knee and support them while they were praying". Now, Osweiler could be put on the trading block or be released if no trade materializes. They'd love to receive a draft pick and have another team pick up a portion of his $16 million guaranteed salary. Now the pressure's on to not fail against Tampa Bay.

While watching the game at my favorite watering hole, Parma Tavern, I was causally talking to two fellow fans during the game, and like me, they were blown away and impressed by Kizer's poise, arm strength and ability to lead Cleveland's first-team down the field.

"He has the right feel for me and for what I'm looking for", Jackson said Saturday after Kizer started and played the first half in a win over Tampa Bay.
