The Cleveland Browns wrapped their week with the New York Giants by earning a 17-13 victory at FirstEnergy Stadium.
It was a hot, physical week that saw the two joint practices end with punches thrown–an altercation which may have lead to corner Troy Hill starting at the nickel corner position.
Coach Kevin Stefanski said prior to the practices that if anyone got out of line, they would play on Sunday. You’d have to think Hill was playing for his participation in Friday’s brew-ha-ha.
The torching hot weather continued on Sunday, as The Athletic’s Jason Lloyd tweeted that a medic told him that he had made 13 calls for dehydration before the game even started.
With the starters resting, there was still plenty to watch, especially with roster cuts coming to a popping point very soon.
The Falcons are next up for the Browns and you’d think the starters would get some game action ahead of the regular season.
Until then, here’s a look at six things the Browns got right/wrong as the team earned it’s second victory of the preseason.
