Ben Tate on jumping into the Dawg Pound after his score:

“Honestly, it felt good to jump in the Dawg Pound, but I can’t really wait to see what it’s like during the season because I know there aren’t a lot of guys here right now. I really can’t wait until the season to jump into the Dawg Pound. That’s what I’m excited about.”Brian Hoyer on leading Browns to touchdown to start the game for for the first team offense.

"It was great to get out there and just move right down the field. We said tonight wasn’t about them. It was about us. Regardless of who’s playing for them – they were nameless and faceless opponents – we just wanted to go out and make everything about us. It’s good to go down and have an 85-yard drive and just execute and get in the end zone.”
