Browns QB DeShone Kizer looked the part in his NFL debut.

Things are finally looking up for the Cleveland Browns, who have named rookie DeShone Kizer the starter in Week 1.

Knowing there are bound to be growing pains that pop up here and there, head coach Hue Jackson is committed to Kizer. He’s not going to keep him on a short leash, to say the least.



Through thick and thin, Kizer will be the guy under center each week barring injury. If the rookie manages to play an entire 16-game season, it would be the first time one quarterback started for the Browns since 2001.

That would be incredible. Kizer has been a bright star so far this summer. He has passed for 351 yards, and one touchdown and one interception so far this preseason. He also added 47 rushing yards and one rushing score.

The Browns’ quarterback competition is officially over, and Kizer is the quarterback the Browns feel most confident in moving ahead. He is also the youngest starting quarterback in the NFL.



For the first time in ages, it is exciting to be a Browns fan.
