Kevin Hogan relieved Kizer and led the Browns on a 5-play, 83-yard drive capped by a 23-yard touchdown to rookie tight end David Njoku to make it 14-7.

Kizer left with what was being called a migraine, which is a bit concerning considering all of the head injuries that happen in the NFL. The Browns themselves quickly confirmed that diagnosis.

Baltimore started their drive at their own 36 and after a 12-yard run by Terrance West and two big catches by Benjamin Watson, the team had marched down to Cleveland's nine-yard line, looking to strike for the second time today. Kizer won the starting job during the preseason, after he beat out Brock Osweiler and Kevin Hogan, which ultimately led to the Browns releasing Osweiler.

Kizer completed 6 of 11 passes for 81 yards with an interception.

Hogan was a fifth-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016 but was waived and claimed by the Browns last season.
