Editor’s note: All grades in this article are subject to review. All PFF player grades will be finalized by 12 pm ET tomorrow.
• Gardner Minshew played an efficient game — 14-of-17 for 142 yards — but did make a turnover-worthy play.
• Boston Scott‘s first carries came with the starters, whereas Kenneth Gainwell got his first touch later in the opening period — which could have fantasy football implications. Both found the end zone.
• Gainwell beat out Scott in yards after contact per attempt — 3.1 to 1.2.
• Devon Allen‘s 55-yard diving catch for a score was the highlight of the unit's uneventful day overall.
SPEED KILLS ????

• Rookie center Cam Jurgens was perfect in pass protection across 10 such snaps. He has now allowed one hurry on 31 pass-blocking snaps this preseason.
• Andre Dillard was the lone Eagles lineman to surrender pressure on the day.
• It was a quiet day for Philadelphia's pass-rushers, with the defensive line failing to record a sack or a quarterback hit.
• 2021 seventh-rounder Patrick Johnson did tally a quarterback hurry and beat his blocker another two times.
• Rookie Nakobe Dean continued to look like a draft steal in the third round. He made two run stops on just 11 run-defense snaps.
• Andre Chachere surrendered three catches on five targets for 42 yards, although he is set to be the Eagles' highest-graded coverage defender, helped by forcing an incompletion.
• Rookie Josh Jobe also forced an incompletion and didn't allow a catch on two targets into his coverage.
• Josh Dobbs played into the second half and completed 14 of his 20 attempts for 141 yards. He was particularly efficient when targeting the 10-to-19-yard range, going 5-of-6 for 77 yards in that area of the field.
• Josh Rosen was next up for the Browns. The former first-round pick posted just a 36.8% adjusted completion rate but did make a big-time throw.
• Kelly notched five first-down runs and found the end zone on the back of 14 carries for 66 yards. He averaged a solid 3.4 yards after contact.
• Anthony Schwartz dropped yet another pass, bringing his preseason total to three. He caught his other two targets for 20 yards.
• Rookie David Bell made his preseason debut. He is set to be Cleveland's highest-graded receiver from the contest after grabbing three of his four targets for 46 yards in addition to forcing a missed tackle.
• Cleveland's offensive line kept the Eagles' pass-rushers at bay for the majority of the contest. The unit surrendered only two pressures — both hurries — on 33 team pass-blocking snaps.
• Guard Michael Dunn is on track to lead the team in run-blocking grade across 17 such snaps.
• Just as Cleveland's offensive line held Philadelphia in check, the Eagles did the same to the Browns' pass-rushers. Isaac Rochell tallied two pressures to lead the group.
• Third-round rookie Alex Wright posted three run stops across 14 such snaps and made four tackles overall in the run game.
• Although linebackers are typically picked on in coverage, the Browns' unit gave up just four catches for 26 yards on the day.
• Tony Fields II, despite missing a tackle, tallied two run stops across 24 run-defense snaps in the contest.
• Lavert Hill surrendered two deep catches for a combined 47 yards.
• After a sensational preseason Week 1 showing, rookie Martin Emerson gave up two catches on two targets for 17 yards in this game.
