At lunch, Myles Garrett, the first overall pick in the draft and one of the reasons for optimism for a beleaguered team, had done a media session right after DeShone Kizer's media gaggle.

Ahead of the Steelers Week 1 matchup against the division rival Cleveland Browns, Brown took to Twitter to give a preview of his new touchdown dance he'll be putting on display the first time he reaches the end zone this season. Garrett sustained a lateral sprain to his left foot during minicamp while pressuring former Browns quarterback Brock Osweiler. He reported healthy for training camp in July.

All that said, this is a better Browns team that took the field a year ago and won just one game at every level except quarterback. The Browns pass defense had plenty of big moments including sacking quarterbacks and pressuring them. Despite a wealth of natural talent, Garrett finished the 2016 season with just 8.5 sacks and didn't know the kind of explosiveness he was known for.

"We have (outside linebacker and No. 1 pick) T.J".

Big Ben needs to remain upright.

Picking Up The Slack - With rookie defensive end Myles Garrett out Sunday, and for the foreseeable future, there are concerns about how the Browns can find a way to replace him.

Hurricane Katia bears down on quake-rattled Mexico
Areas of Mexico to the north of Cabo Rojo and to the south of Laguna Verde are under a tropical-storm warning. The mountainous region where the storm has been dumping rain has a history of deadly floods and slides.

The Browns' back said that his mother was unable to evacuate in time because her flight got cancelled so they are going to ride the storm out. The Kansas City Chiefs showed their offense is one of the best, which means Pittsburgh needs to now prepare for even more threats in the AFC.

Continuing last year's tradition I will continue to note whether or not the Browns are favored going into a given contest.

Garrett hopes to begin his season by getting his hands on Roethlisberger, who is 20-2 in his career against the Browns. "But I don't know until we start playing". Like Roethlisberger, Kizer, a second-round pick from Notre Dame, grew up in NW Ohio and is familiar with heated Steelers-Browns rivalry, calling it "as blue collar as it gets.". It's unfortunate. He's one of our better players, and we wish we had them all out there, but we'll have him out there at some point in time soon.

"Absolutely, I do. Now you've got to back it up", he said.

If eventually we go a week without a rookie quarterback in a starting role, this rookie quarterback group will unfortunately have something in common with the class of 2007. "Doesn't really work if you don't hit him". It is worth noting, however, that preseason performance has very little correlation with regular season outcomes.
