Word out of Cleveland is that the Browns are going to have a rookie under center when they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 of the regular season. The team’s official Twitter account reported that DeShone Kizer will get the first start of the season.
Historically, rookie quarterbacks have found the sledding pretty tough against the Steelers. They have an 18-3 record in the last 21 games where Pittsburgh faced a rookie signal caller, which is best in the NFL.
However, recent history says that might not matter. Last season, Pittsburgh felt confident when they took on then-rookie Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles. They let the rookie look like Joe Montana as the Eagles handed Pittsburgh their worst loss of the season.
But this is Cleveland. Pittsburgh is 12-2 in the last 14 games and 30-5 since 2000. Kizer looks to have a bright NFL future but his career might not be getting off to the best start.
After the 2017 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns had about 25 new players. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration, but the team had a ridiculous number of draft picks who now call Cleveland home.
Although calling Cleveland home may sound like a cruel joke, the Browns have started putting together a foundation which they can build a solid team upon.

Many NFL teams hesitate throwing players into the fire immediately, but the Browns will be doing just that in Week 1 as the team announced rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer will be the starting gun slinger facing the black and gold when the two teams play in Week 1.
This brings in an entirely new narrative to the table. After Myles Garrett was the first overall draft pick, he stated how he was excited his first sack will be against Ben Roethlisberger.
That didn’t go over well with the Steelers’ offensive line, and will provide plenty of motivation for the offense, but now the Steelers defense will have a rookie quarterback in their sights to kickoff the 2017 regular season.
Although Kizer is a rookie, he certainly has traits which can be concerning to the opposition. He is big, mobile and has a rocket arm; however, if you watched his film from his limited snaps in the NFL preseason, you will see how he makes many rookie mistakes when under center. He has the look of a winner, but will certainly take time to develop.
With Kizer and Garrett, the Steelers will hope to give them a proper welcome to the NFL, and that would involve plenty of plays which equate to a Steelers win, and a Browns loss.
