Hue Jackson brags on DeShone Kizer despite Browns’ loss


Hue Jackson has shuffled quarterback DeShone Kizer in and out of the lineup. He initially thought the benching was beneficial, and Sunday’s performance may be some form of validation.

The Browns lost to the Vikings in London, with Kizer throwing for just 179 yards and completing 52.9 percent of his passes. He didn’t have a touchdown or interception.

But Jackson maintains he’s seeing improvement.

"Today was a better version of DeShone,'' Jackson said. "He made some throws, made some plays with his legs, made some decisions. I'm sure there's a couple plays he'd like to have back, like any quarterback would, but I thought this was improvement from where we've been to where we're trying to go, so I was very happy about that.''

The Browns did have their first halftime lead of the season at 13-12. Kizer had a solid first half, completing 8 of 12 passes for 101 yards. And again, no interceptions. That in itself is encouraging for a player who’s been plagued by them.
