Back in half-filled Raymond James Stadium and facing the team that released him to clear the way to select Winston No. 1 overall in this year's draft, McCown completed 17 of 23 passes for 117 yards. He showed why the Browns (1-2) think the 36-year-old quarterback can help them contend for a playoff berth.
Winston, meanwhile, struggled in his third preseason start. The 2013 Heisman Trophy winner was 6 of 15 for 90 yards, threw one interception and was sacked four times before leaving after one series in the third quarter.
