On Friday night, Robert Griffin III, the new Cleveland Browns starting quarterback, made his debut with his new team. He went four-of-eight for 67 yards in the Browns’ opener against the Green Bay Packers.

He also had an interception, as well. He threw a 49-yard grain to Terrelle Pryor down the right sideline on his first offensive play.

On the same drive, RGIII completed a third down. Then, he made a questionable decision, as he was intercepted — on what could have been a scoring opportunity.

Griffin III did not play a single snap last season as the Washington Redskins had Kirk Cousins as the starter. This was his first action since last pre-season.

He’ll look to build on this week’s performance against the Atlanta Falcons next week.

The 26-year-old didn’t have much of a competition for the starting job from Josh McCown or rookie Cody Kessler. He signed with the team in the off-season after leaving as a disgruntled player from the Redskins.

He last played in nine games with the them in 2014. He went 147-of-214 for 1,694 yards with four touchdowns. He threw six interceptions and had only one 300-yard passing game.
