Nuggets:

  • Everyone is playing for the chance to claim this:

    via a.espncdn.com

  • Sadly, QB Bernie Kosar will not be commentating this game, which will make the preseason a whole lot less fun. If he will be involved in any pre- or post-game coverage, it hasn't been announced yet.

  • The Browns have had over 3,000 fans attend each of their training camp sessions in Berea thus far.

  • If you want to know more about the Lions heading into this game, check out our Q&A with Pride of Detroit right here. We also did a Q&A for them.

  • Probably because of QB Johnny Manziel, the game is also being featured on NFL Network, where you will probably hear each team's announcers for one half of the game.

  • We will have a game day thread up here at 6:00 PM ET, along with plenty of in-game and post-game analysis.
