Browns vs. Saints: Your five-minute guide for preseason Week 1 2017

The New Orleans Saints plan to hold out several key veteran skill players from tonight's game against the Cleveland Browns, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini.

Today has been circled on the calendars of Cleveland Browns fans for quite some time. New Orleans has one of the league's most explosive offenses led by Drew Brees and while they are without Brandin Cooks this season who was traded to the New England Patriots they still have Michael Thomas who is due for a massive breakout and the likes of Willie Snead capable of making big plays as well. But he has said he's still getting up to full speed with a new playbook and new system. So far, a revamped offensive line, three first-round draft picks - including No. 1 overall Myles Garrett - and new quarterbacks Brock Osweiler and DeShone Kizer have only been able to play against teammates. Cleveland is atrocius against the spread as well which makes it even more hard to understand how or why they are favoured against anybody despite this one being in Cleveland and most of New Orleans' big guns will be sidelined.
