Mayfield was up next and, following a three-and-out, settled in on his second series, finding Rashard Higgins with a pretty back-shoulder throw on the sideline for a 26-yard gain.

Callaway, the Browns' fourth-round pick, played despite being cited for marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license. The drive included conversions on third and long and fourth and two.

Leading up to Thursday night's preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns, there was an implication that New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. might suit up for the first time since Week 5 of last season. He finished his debut with a completion on a 54-yard, slant-and-run score to fellow rookie Antonio Callaway.
