On Saturday, head coach Hue Jackson held a conference call with reporters after having had a chance to review some of the film from the Cleveland Browns‘ 20-14 preseason win over the New Orleans Saints. Here is a recap of the key takeaways:

Hue Jackson’s Offensive Notes

  • No decision has been made on the team’s quarterback situation heading into the Giants game, which the team will have plenty of time to prepare for. Jackson wasn’t prepared yet to overreact in a good way toward DeShone Kizer or a bad way toward Brock Osweiler. A reporter asked if wide receivers played a part in Osweiler now faring so well:

Early in the game, there were some plays that he missed, but he did some good things last …
