"I'm aware that it was the first game, and in that respect, it's not so bad", said Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy victor from Oklahoma.

"What I saw on that first carry, the offensive line did a great job of creating space and creating a hole, " Barkley said. And he'll do it against a Giants team that's got a new coach in Pat Shurmur, a familiar leader in Eli Manning and a rousing crew of weapons headlined by Barkley, who'll get his first opportunity to own the Giants' backfield in East Rutherford. Just some new things for me. However, in his second series on the field, Mayfield connected with tight end David Njoku for a short touchdown pass. Browns GM John Dorsey and Hue Jackson believe that Antonio Callaway didn't smoke marijuana last weekend, but spoke with the rookie receiver on Tuesday night and warned him in no uncertain terms "that these types of things can't be tolerated". "I'm honestly not surprised by anything Baker does".

Overall, it was a solid start to his professional career for Mayfield. Police also found bullets and a gun part in his auto this week.
