The Cleveland Browns have lost their first preseason game to the Packers, ending the Friday night game with a score of 17-11.

“We have some work to do. We had some chances, but we have to not turn the ball over,” head coach Hue Jackson told us at halftime. “One of our goals is to not turn the ball over. If you don’t turn it over, mostly good things are going to happen.”

According to ClevelandBrowns.com, starting quarterback Robert Griffin passed for 67 yards and had an interception on 4-of-8 attempts on two series.

The Browns website said running back Raheem Mostert led Cleveland with 43 rushing yards, including a 27-yard scamper in the first half, on five carries.

“We had a few mistakes, but overall, I thought it was good for us to get out and go against another team,” Griffin said, according to the Browns website. “We look forward to getting back on the field during the next preseason game.”
