Summer-like temperatures gone from Cleveland Browns preseason game at FirstEnergy Stadium

CLEVELAND - It certainly felt like football season Thursday night at FirstEnergy Stadium as the temperatures dipped into the 50s and 60s again in Cleveland, and it's still August.

A sight you see more in late September and October, hundreds filed into FirstEnergy stadium armed with jackets, sweaters, blankets. On one person NewsChannel5 spotted even sported a winter knit cap.

Fans came pumped, excited for the cooler temps. But on top of the bag policy, there was one more thing to worry about.

"I didn't know how to dress at first coming out here, but it worked out pretty well," Gary Lyon said.

Others like Paul DeVito admitted the same.

"You just grab a jacket and pray," DeVito said.

The temperatures were much different from last year. Doug Kasunic has been a ticket holder for some time.

"Here, I think it was about 100 degrees. It's not fun. It doesn't feel like football," Kasunic said.

"It's chilly out here, but if you go to the muni lot a little later on, it's going to be 100 degrees later on because we're going to be partying because it's Browns time," George Liberty said.

But with the cooler temps hitting Cleveland so early, it makes you wonder what a Browns game will feel like a few months from now.

"That' why we're here tonight instead of the winter," Lyon said.
