In his National Football League preseason debut, Giants running back Barkley delivered with a 39-yard rush on his first touch.

Mayfield showed his ability to make plays both in and out of the pocket, extending the drive with his legs twice.

After an opening three-and-out, Mayfield returned to guide Cleveland on a 14-play, 72-yard scoring march highlighted by a 21-yard strike to C.J.

Mayfield finished the night 11-of-20 passing for 212 yards and two touchdowns.

"They came out with some fire", head coach Hue Jackson said during a halftime broadcast.

The violence came after two fighters from the military wing of Hamas, which governs Gaza , were killed by Israeli fire on Tuesday. After Israel responded with tank fire, dozens of rockets were sent toward Israeli territory on Wednesday night.

Elsewhere on the first full night of preseason games, it's Carolina at Buffalo, Chicago at Cincinnati, New Orleans at Jacksonville, Tampa Bay at Miami, Pittsburgh at Philadelphia, the Los Angeles Rams at Baltimore, Washington at New England, Tennessee at Green Bay, Houston at Kansas City, and Dallas at San Francisco.

Mayfield returned in the third quarter to spin additional magic, rolling to his right on a third-and-7 from his own 22 to find rookie Antonio Callaway along the sideline for 24 yards.

"What I saw on that first carry, the offensive line did a great job of creating space and creating a hole, " Barkley said.

That connection wasn't finished as Mayfield opened the fourth quarter with a 54-yard touchdown lob to the fourth-round wideout, who finished with 87 yards off three catches and looked good doing it. "I want him to get what he deserves and you can't put nothing on that regardless of where it's at". The Browns were one of the more active teams in free agency and trades this offseason, not to mention the fact they had two picks in the top four of the 2018 NFL Draft. "This is just his first opportunity, he'll grow from it".
