Browns Jackson tempers enthusiasm over Kizer

(TSX / STATS) -- BEREA, Ohio -- The battle to become starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns isn't over, but rookie DeShone Kizer definitely is in the lead -- head coach Hue Jackson's remarks notwithstanding.

In the preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Kizer was the standout compared to veterans Brock Osweiler, who started the game, and Cody Kessler, who started eight games for the Browns last season.

Kizer did not play in the first half, and after a rocky third-quarter start in which the Browns totaled 19 yards in his first two possessions, Kizer righted himself and the rest of the offense. Kizer finished the night completing 14 of 18 passes for 126 yards.
