Predict the Score:
As mentioned in our game preview, the Browns will debut one set of their new uniforms, white-on-white.
- Former Browns QB Colt McCoy is a backup for Washington. Former Browns OG Shawn Lauvao should start for the Redskins.
- The last time these two teams met came in the second game of last year's preseason, with the Redskins defeating the Browns 24-23 on Monday Night Football. It was a sluggish start to the game for both sides, but the action picked up in the fourth quarter as the teams combined for 30 points. QB Connor Shaw connected with TE Emmanuel Ogbuehi on a 45-yard Hail Mary as time expired, making it a 24-23 game. Because it was the preseason, the Browns went for two points and the win, but the conversion was no good.
- We will have a game day thread up here at 6:30 PM ET, along with plenty of in-game and post-game analysis.
