DeShone Kizer again named starting quarterback for Browns

DeShone Kizer again named starting quarterback for Browns

Browns coach Hue Jackson believes the rookie Kizer learned a lesson from the benching and will be better off because of it.

Hogan, a fifth-round pick previous year who got the chance to start after playing well in the second half against the Jets in Week 5, got his first career start against the Houston Texans last Sunday.

Up next for the winless Cleveland Browns is a home matchup against the 3-3 Tennessee Titans. "I think he will understand that better and really what it does to your team as you are in those situations. It definitely motivated me throughout the week to make sure that I'm doing extra", Kizer said, via the Browns' site. The rookie is at the bottom of almost every passing category, including completion percentage (50.9), yards per attempt (5.35), touchdown percentage (1.9), interception percentage (5.7) and passer rating (49.5). However, Kizer's appointment back into the starting lineup looks like it will come sooner than expected after Hogan, who shined in relief of Kizer in Week 5, was abysmal in last Sunday's loss to the Texans, completing only 20 of 37 passes for 140 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

Hogan finished the game with a 122.4 quarterback rating.

If nothing else, Kizer had an opportunity to experience the game against the Texans in a similar way to Browns fans - spending three hours on a Sunday afternoon seeing things they wish they could unsee later that evening. You have to do more.

"No. 2, I think he will demand more from the guys that play around him because I think he understands that every play matters and every play is a difference between having a chance to win or lose a game".

"He'll be a little bit more team-protecting in situational football things", said Jackson.
