Kizer had a promising debut in the National Football League, going 20-for-30 with 222 yards, a touchdown and a pick.

Fortunately for both Britt and the Browns, they've only played one regular season game, with 15 still remaining. "It will be a big "Hooray" and everyone is going to forget the one that he dropped against Pittsburgh, honestly".

Right now, though, Browns coach Hue Jackson's sole focus is the Ravens.

"You're saying he's starting this week". "We needed all the plays, especially being down a couple of points, at that point".

"All of our guys, there are some things that we want to see them do better and we'll work through that this week and make decisions about where we are as we get closer to game time, " said Jackson. "He's going to have to take it all in, but play within our system, play within himself and go have a good game". "Welcome to the AFC North", Kizer said.

"That ball is gonna be back in that same spot", Kizer said of Britt's big drop. "I think that has a lot to do with the way you prepare for that, making sure that you know how to accurately communicate, overly communicate and pretend that every play you have in practice is going to be as loud as you play in the stadium". "He's been in this league since I've been in grade school".

"My mindset when I have the ability to run the ball is to always try to extend the play as much as I can", he said.

Kizer only targeted Britt three times, but one was a ideal throw between the hash marks with 11:30 left that caromed off both of his hands, eliciting a collective groan from the stands.

Suggs had two sacks last week, and Kizer said Suggs is "playing (like he's) as young as I am".

Defensively, the Ravens are yielding 0.0 points and 221.0 total yards (144.0 in passing and 77.0 in rushing) per game. He set career highs with 68 receptions and 1,002 receiving yards last season with the Los Angeles Rams. When you get into those environments where it is a little hostile and gets loud, you have to go back to the fundamentals that got you where you are. "You've got Hall of Famers who have dropped balls". It doesn't really matter to me. The Ravens will disguise coverages and try to force Kizer into hard third-down situations, and though they'll bring rushers from everywhere, their most notable rusher is still Terrell Suggs, who was drafted when Kizer was a first-grader but is still making plays. "I think that his coaching style and his offensive philosophy allows the quarterback to do that".

One player who could see more reps is Kasen Williams, who was claimed on waivers the weekend before the opener.
