Saquon Barkley's thrilling 39-yard rush in first National Football League carry

Saquon Barkley's thrilling 39-yard rush in first National Football League carry

It might only be the preseason, but one game in, Baker Mayfield showed why the Cleveland Browns made him the No. 1 overall pick in this year's National Football League draft. Make any case to start at quarterback for the Browns right away over Tyrod Taylor.

Saquon Barkley has arrived. However, in his second series on the field, Mayfield connected with tight end David Njoku for a short touchdown pass.

While that was all well and good, Mayfield's showcase came after Taylor completed all of his pass attempts (5 for 5, 99 yards) in posting a ideal passer rating (158.3) and had the more impressive TD connection with Njoku. He then almost found controversial rookie Antonio Callaway, in the lineup only days after receiving a marijuana citation that he didn't immediately inform the Browns of, on a deep shot that Callaway couldn't locate. He continued marching the offense, twice keeping the drive alive with his legs - on third-and-6 and fourth-and-2 - to set up Cleveland with first-and-goal.

Taylor, expected to be coach Jackson's starter as Mayfield learns this season, hit all five of his passes in two series, including a 36-yard touchdown pass to Njoku, a New Jersey native.

That connection wasn't finished as Mayfield opened the fourth quarter with a 54-yard touchdown lob to the fourth-round wideout, who finished with 87 yards off three catches and looked good doing it.

QB controversy in Cleveland?
