Terrelle Pryor took another step towards 2016 Super Bowl MVP honors Friday night against the Green Bay Packers.
In the first play of the first preseason game of the season, Cleveland Browns quarterback Robert Griffin linked up with Pryor for a 49-yard reception, beating Packers cornerback Damarious Randall.
Height, speed, and play-making ability: Pryor showed all the reasons the Browns brought him back after his transition to wide receiver last year.
Though the Browns lost the game, 17-11, Pryor finished with two receptions for 59 yards on three targets.
“We came out right off the top and we wanted to get a big play,” Pryor told ohio.com after the game about the catch. “It was a great throw. We had the exact defense that we wanted. It was cover one, press man. I got off of press, beat the guy and just made a play on the ball.
The next time Pryor takes the field will be Thursday against the Atlanta Falcons. The Browns' regular season starts Sept. 11th with a trip to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles.
