What to watch for: Browns-Packers

The NFL season officially begins in earnest this week with the start of the preseason for all 32 teams. Around The NFL's Conor Orr dissects what you can expect to see from the 16 games this weekend.

Here's what to what to watch for ...

Cleveland Browns at Green Bay Packers (8 p.m.)

» The Browns have a new quarterback, if you might not have heard. Robert Griffin III's re-debut is far different than that of say, Mark Sanchez, though. Griffin's slide was an amalgamation of so many things; regression, a lack of confidence, a change in scheme, a turning of the locker room. This is more than just a journeyman hoping for a Ryan Fitzpatrick moment. This is a player hoping to get born again when it comes to football.

» Does Jeff Janis end the skid? The Packers wideout hasn't had the best of camps and is currently buried on Green Bay's depth chart. Anything can happen in the preseason, though, and Janis is hoping for the type of performance that changes the minds of head coaches.

» The Terrelle Pryor experiment seems closer than ever to actually happening, depending on who you listen to. Pryor will get a chance to prove he belongs in a young rotation against a decent Packers secondary.
