When the Cleveland Browns face off with the Jacksonville Jaguars, nothing will be on the line. The first preseason game, of three this year, will not count for anything for either team.
That doesn’t mean the game itself won’t have meaning for both teams. For the Jaguars, implementation of what Urban Meyer wants to see for his team will be the highest priority.
For the Browns, Saturday night is the first in what the team hopes is at least 23 times (3 preseason, 17 regular season, at least 3 postseason plus a bye) they will kick off a game in the 2021 season. For Cleveland, this is just the start of something much, much bigger.
While the game itself is meaningless, there are a few things that the Browns will hope for coming out of the game.
