What to watch for Monday in Week 2 of NFL preseason

The first week of the preseason gave us some of the most enjoyable rookie quarterback play we've seen in a warmup in quite some time. Everyone from Mitchell Trubisky to Bills fifth-rounder Nathan Peterman created some memorable moments, generating an appetite for a far more competitive preseason Week 2 slate. Battles are tightening and players near the bottom of the roster are jostling for position.

Here's what we suggest looking out for on Monday:


Giants at Browns, 8 p.m. ET (Live on ESPN)

Giants: There are so many teams with one or two questions on the offensive line that could end up becoming real concerns down the road. The Giants have done this dance with former first-round pick Ereck Flowers in the past, but the stakes are much higher in 2017. His week to week evaluations will continue to be must-reads for Giants fans concerned about the status of their potentially high-flying offense.

Browns:Brock Osweiler is apparently being groomed as Cleveland's starting quarterback but DeShone Kizer looked fantastic last week against the Saints. The quarterback position will continue to be the story until it isn't. Tired of thinking about offense? Watch Jabrill Peppers possibly drop down and play some linebacker or follow Briean Boddy-Calhoun around the field. The 5-foot-9 undrafted free agent could be on his way to a big season in Cleveland. The Browns are quite high on him.
