Mayfield was up next and, following a three-and-out, settled in on his second series, finding Rashard Higgins with a pretty back-shoulder throw on the sideline for a 26-yard gain. Taylor will start under center, though not expected to stay in the game long. "I only got a couple of carries, but I wanted to show that I'm willing to get the gritty yards, break big plays, and be productive in this offense".

It's only one preseason game, but there were plenty of reasons to be hopeful. Just some new things for me.

"After the first game you see a lot about things you need to improve on, " Manning said.

According to ESPN, all fans inside the stadium were able to place bets on their phones with no restrictions through DraftKings until late in the fourth quarter when the Browns had mounted a 10 point lead. In two drives, Taylor went 5-of-5 for 99 yards, including a 36-yard TD down the seam to TE David Njoku (more on him shortly), for a ideal passer rating (158.3).

He hit 11 of 20 passes for 212 yards, didn't turn the ball over and converted two fourth-down plays with his feet.

National Football League fans attending the New York Giants' preseason game against the Cleveland Browns at MetLife Stadium on Thursday night had the opportunity to place a legal wager on the game from inside the stadium. He received a ton of work in six series and looked, well, mostly like the big-play magician who won the Heisman trophy a year ago.

Leading up to Thursday night's preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns, there was an implication that New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. might suit up for the first time since Week 5 of last season.
