Browns QB Kizer protects the football,In loss

  • there is no mystery about which quarterback will start for the Cleveland Browns in their next game.,For the first time in nearly a month

    The job belongs to rookie DeShone Kizer when the Browns return from their bye to meet the Lions in Detroit on Nov. 12.

    The Browns lost to the Minnesota Vikings in London, 33-16, but they at least head into their bye encouraged because Kizer made no turnovers after throwing 11 interceptions and losing two fumbles in a little more than what amounted to 24 quarters before the Minnesota game.

    “A small win is a small win,” Kizer said. “That was an opportunity for me to prove to my teammates that I’m going to keep the ball out of harm’s way, and that’s what I was able to do.

    let my teammates know what they’re going to get out of me.”,Authentic Josh Mauro Jersey,“I’m going to build on that and find some consistency in that quarterback room

    Kizer completed 18 of 24 passes for 179 yards against the Vikings. They are not stellar numbers,Authentic Jermaine Gresham Jersey, but his 68.1 passer rating was his highest since posting an 85.7 rating in the season opener against the Steelers. More important, he showed he could manage the clock when he put together an 82-yard,womens Corey Peters Jersey, eight-play drive late in the second quarter,Authentic Alex Mack Jersey, finishing off on a 1-yard run with 40 seconds left in the half.

    “I thought (Sunday) was a better version of DeShone,” head coach Hue Jackson said Monday. “He played better as far as taking care of the football. There were some plays he’d like back,Authentic Dontari Poe Jersey, but he put the team in a position early in the first half to have the lead we had. We have to find a way to finish it in the second half.”

    Jackson is trying to balance two goals. He is trying to win games and develop Kizer. It will be easier for him to do the latter if Kizer continues to protect the ball. Winning could be a by-product.

    –The Browns are going to use the bye to try out kickers. Rookie Zane Gonzalez hit the right upright on an extra-point attempt against the Vikings and missed a field goal wide left. He missed two field-goal tries against the Jets in the fifth game.

    “There’s no question,Authentic Derrick Shelby Jersey,” head coach Hue Jackson said. “I mean, we’ve got to do something that way just to figure that out because that’s unfortunate.”
