Just days after DeShone Kizer led the Cleveland Browns to a 13-9 preseason win over Tampa Bay, the Browns have officially named him the starting quarterback for the regular season.
Kizer, a Central Catholic graduate who played for Notre Dame in college, was picked in the 2nd round of the 2017 NFL Draft by Cleveland. He steadily climbed up the depth chart, beating out Brock Osweiller and Cody Kessler before being named the starting QB for week 3 of the preseason. The third preseason game is typically where most of a team's starters will get the most playing time.
Against Tampa Bay, Kizer completed 6 of his 18 passes for 93 yards and an interception. In all 3 preseason games, Kizer passed 25-for-49 for 351 yards and a touchdown.
The Browns begin their regular season September 10th against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
