Week 1 of the NFL preseason is coming up, and we had a full line-up of 10 games on Saturday, August 14th. The Cleveland Browns faced the Jacksonville Jaguars when both teams first came on the field in 2021. Here’s the Browns vs. Jaguars score. Results and highlights.

While we didn’t see Brown’s quarterback Baker Mayfield, we did see a bit of Jaguar’s QB Trevor Lawrence, # 1 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft. He had his moments but was also sacked twice during the game. However, he faced WR Marvin Jones on a beautiful 35 yard pass.

It was about exactly what you’d expect from a rookie quarterback facing a strong defense: some good, some bad, but nothing to worry about. Lawrence finished day 6 of 9 for 71 yards.

Case Keenum, on the other hand, did a good job leading the Browns by throwing 115 yards on 12 completions, averaging 6.8 yards per attempt. While he didn’t get the ball in the end zone, we saw him and third stringer Kyle Lauletta push the ball across the field. We can expect more of this if Mayfield leads the offensive in the regular season.

The story of the night centers on the Browns’ strong defense. They didn’t allow a goal until the fourth quarter. They put 4 sacks for a total of 17 yards lost and allowed a net total of 302 yards, with many of those yards allowed in the second half.

That defense, combined with a Cleveland offensive that will click on all cylinders, makes for a scary Browns team in 2021.

Highlights and updates from Browns and Jaguars

10:07 p.m. ET: The Browns kneel and they walk away with a 23-13 win.

10:04 p.m. ET: With 29 seconds remaining in play, Jake Luton puts the ball in the end zone for a LANDING on a 7 yard pass to Tyler Davis.

9:53 p.m. ET: We hit the Jacksonville two-minute warning. The Jaguars have the ball and Jake Luton will try to get more points on the board.

9:49 p.m. ET: Why is Jacksonville taking time off? Just quit the game.

9:46 p.m. ET: The Jaguars can’t do much and hit the ball away after a four-game drive. Browns take over with three minutes left.

9:36 p.m. ET: The Browns chewed up a lot of time on this drive, starting with the ball at 14:51 and ending with possession with 4:28 remaining in play. It was a nice mix of run and pass plays on the 20-play drive. Lauletta moved the offense further and pushed the ball across the field. In third and seventh place off the 7-yard line of the Jaguars, he completed a pass to WR Ryan Switzer, who made it into the end zone for the LANDING.

Ryan Switzer for 6!

The #Browns take the 23-6 leadership. # CLEvsJAX

9:14 p.m. ET: CJ Beathard leads the Jaguars from one side of the field (own 25) to the other and brings the ball into the end zone for a LANDING over a 5 yard pass to Tavon Austin in 4th and 2nd jaguars go for two but the conversion failed. The offense was balanced on the drive, with a healthy mix of running and passing games.

9:10 p.m. ET: The third quarter is drawing to a close and the Jaguars are knocking on the Browns’ door. You’re sitting with the ball on the Browns 5-yard line.

8:58 p.m. ET: Kyle Lauletta, third on the Browns depths chart, continues (unsurprisingly) to lead the Browns offensive in the second half. After a 27-yard pass to Ja’Marcus Bradley, the offense stalled. Cody Parkey hit a 48-yard Field gate off the crossbar to give the Browns 3 and a 16-0 lead.

8:52 p.m. ET: CJ Beathard moved the ball well, bringing the Jaguars to the Browns’ 29-yard line. A 47 yard field goal attempt by Josh Lambo is no good.

8:47 p.m. ET: The Jaguars’ first offensive strike in the second half allowed RB Dare Ogunbowale to show some lightning bolts. He is entering his fifth year in the NFL, second with the Jaguars. It was used more as a receiver throughout his career – that is, until it arrived in Jacksonville. We’ll see if he finds a home in Jacksonville behind James Robinson, Travis Etienne and Carlos Hyde.

8:46 p.m. ET: We’re starting the second half and CJ Beathard will lead the Jaguars offensive. Beathard is third on the QB depth map, behind Trevor Lawrence and Gardner Minshew.

8:27 p.m. ET: Minshew takes a deep shot at Tavon Austin for a 23 yard close. In the next game, he returns to Austin for a 12-yard degree. Minshew finished the half 47 yards on 7 tries. His last half game is an Ave Maria try that is INTERCEPTED from the Browns.

8:23 p.m. ET: With less than a minute in the first half, Lauletta has further lifted. He throws Davion Davis a perfect 27-yard pass for a LANDING. Lauletta now has 110 yards on 13 attempts. He’s been looking really good since he came into the game.

Davion Davis OKAY

Touchdown #Browns!

8:13 p.m. ET: Minshew tries to get the offense going with a deep pass to Collin Johnson. Unfortunately it is almost intercepted by Richard LeCounte. They push the ball pack to the Browns.

8:02 p.m. ET: Kyle Lauletta is now in the game as the QB replacing Keenum. His first pass is a nice 17 yard finish for Kelly. A few games later, he completes a 25-yard pass to Felton. The Browns also received a roughing penalty which placed them at the 9-yard line.

7:56 p.m. ET: Gardner Minshew is now in the QB position for the Jaguars. Lawrence finished his short night 6/9 with 71 yards. On his first drive, Minshew is dismissed for a five yard loss. This is the third sack of the night for Cleveland.

7:52 p.m. ET: After CJ Henderson nearly intercepted Keenum, the Browns settle for another Field gate. This one was from the 34-yard line.

7:48 p.m. ET: Keenum makes another nice throw at Janovich for an 18 yard pickup. After a little over a quarter, he has 103 yards on 14 attempts.

7:46 p.m. ET: Keenum throws the ball to RB John Kelly. He makes two nice moves to avoid the Jacksonville defenders 7 yards.

7:36 p.m. ET: The Browns’ defense is already flexing its muscles and dismisses Lawrence for the second time in the first quarter. Lawrence pursued the sack with a 35-yard low pass to WR Marvin Jones. It was a perfectly placed ball.

Oh man, Trevor Lawrence with a nice litter and Marvin Jones with a better catch! ? # CLEvsJAX

7:25 p.m. ET: Keenum takes a deep shot on his first drive. It is almost intercepted by Shaquill Griffin. Keenum continues to throw at his favorite target so far in the game, Peoples-Jones. He already has 3 receptions for 26 yards.

This is a beautiful catch from Donavan Peoples-Jones. ? # CLEvsJAX

7:18 p.m. ET: Jacksonville rookie QB Trevor Lawrence is now in the game. He is released on his first play with a loss of 7 yards. His next 2 passes were complete for 8 and 10 yards.

7:17 p.m. ET: The Browns hit the ball to the Jaguars and Chris Claybrooks took it 76 yards. Unfortunately the game was brought back due to a penalty.

7:11 p.m. ET: The Browns drove down the field and kicked a 37-yard Field gate. Chase McLaughlin gave the Browns their first points of the game.

D’Ernest Johnson: “When your opportunity presents itself, you have to make the most of it.” ?

7:05 p.m. ET: Brown’s QB Case Keenum starts the game at QB. His first pass is a 15 yard close in the middle to WR Donovan Peoples-Jones. So far, Keenum has completed all 4 of his passes for nearly 50 yards. The Browns offensive clicks.
