The highlights, easily, both went to Callaway - a 24-yard sideline strike with Mayfield rolling to his right on third-and-7, and a 54-yard catch-and-run touchdown off a quick slant to punctuate both rookies' nights.

The Browns starting QB Tyrod Taylor completed all of his five passes for 99 yards and a touchdown. The Browns were one of the more active teams in free agency and trades this offseason, not to mention the fact they had two picks in the top four of the 2018 NFL Draft.
