"Each year we go through the season and they say, 'Wait for next year.' So here I am, watching the game to see what's going to happen," said lifetime Browns fan, Robert Freeman.
This was a chance for fans to check out the new team, and all eyes were playing close attention to one rookie: Johnny Manziel. With the new additions to this year's roster, fans are riding high off excitement.
