Josh Rosen wanted to skip Rookie Premiere

Because he’s smart and rich, Josh Rosen has had to explain to people that he actually likes football.

This week, he showed it, or at least tried to.

While the minutiae of the interpretation of the CBA might not move the needle, it’s at least a bit of evidence (such that he should have to provide any) that Rosen wanted to stay in Arizona and work on his craft.

That’s the kind the thing that people who care about football do.

Hue Jackson is back, and the coach will have to show some progress after compiling a 1-31 record over the last two seasons. The goal should be simple against the usual AFC North rivals and cross-over games against the NFC South and AFC West: Win one game and go from there.

Toughest tests: The road schedule features a brutal outdoor game at Denver and indoor game at New Orleans. Those are tough places to play for any team. The home schedule features playoff teams from last season in Kansas City, Carolina and Atlanta. The Chargers, the last team the Browns beat in the regular season, also visit FirstEnergy Stadium.

Biggest breaks: The Jets present one clear chance for the Browns to score a victory. Cleveland played three games against AFC North teams in the first four weeks last season and hung with the Steelers in a 21-18 loss in Week 1. Look for Cleveland to get a division opponent early in the same situation.

The Houston Rockets, tied 1-1 in the best of seven NBA Western Conference Finals, met the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 on Sunday, May 20, 2018, at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

The Rockets are led by guard James Harden, who averaged 30.4 points per game in the regular season. The Warriors are led by small forward Kevin Durant, who averaged 26.4 points per game, and guard Stephen Curry.
