Former Harrisburg standout Robert Martin has strong debut with New York Giants

In fact, it looked like they were back at Oklahoma and Penn State, respectively, competing for the Heisman Trophy.

National Football League fans attending the New York Giants' preseason game against the Cleveland Browns at MetLife Stadium on Thursday night had the opportunity to place a legal wager on the game from inside the stadium.

Tyrod Taylor's great game in the preseason opener in NY gets lost in the media hubbub over No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield and tight end David Njoku's big nights. It was impressive to see Mayfield patiently roll through his progressions - eyes scanning the field - before finding the massive-bodied tight end near the back of the end zone. He continued marching the offense, twice keeping the drive alive with his legs - on third-and-6 and fourth-and-2 - to set up Cleveland with first-and-goal. Mayfield hit fourth-round pick Antonio Callaway over the middle for a 54-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

Barkley had four more carries, which only resulted in four yards gained, after his big play.

The Cleveland Browns' rookie quarterback lit up an NFC opponent in his professional debut, an August exhibition game that gave hope to a beleaguered franchise.
