Perhaps it wasn't quite total redemption.
Browns coach Hue Jackson said he expects rookie quarterback Cody Kessler to start Sunday on the road against Washington after making his National Football League regular-season debut this past weekend in a 30-24 overtime loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase isn't happy with his team.
"I'm always happy to get a win".
The Browns have to be devastated about their quarterback situation, but at the same time, the thought of pairing this type of playmaker in Terrelle Pryor with another one like Josh Gordon and soon - both he and Corey Coleman - is intimidating for defensive backfields. "He just got off a plane with us and I don't know him as well as I know this chair right here". And not only did he sack the Miami QB, he caused Tannehill to fumble and recovered the loose ball at the Dolphins' 27-yard line with 20 seconds left in a 24-24 game. Tannehill finished his day 23 for 35 for 269 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.
We talk about it in this video. Is there reason to think Hue Jackson was right in putting faith in him?

Jets claim tight end Seferian-Jenkins off waivers
The put the Jets positional woes into perspective, the offense has only targeted a tight end twice so far this season. Friday's DUI arrest was the second for Seferian-Jenkins, who was also cited for DUI in 2013 while at Washington.
Fortunately for the Dolphins, Cleveland kicker Cody Parkey missed his 46-yard field goal attempt, his third miss of the day, sending the game into overtime.
"I think he had some mistakes that I know he'd want back", Gase began before excusing his quarterback by adding, "I know there was a couple times where he was in the right position and somebody else broke down". "We make corrections, we get better from the things we have done and I'm looking for our team to make the next jump this week and continue to get better as we chase this win". They took the lead when they went 68 yards in just four plays, Tannehill connecting with Landry, who juked a pair of Browns defenders on his way to the end zone, for a 42-yard catch-and-run score to go up 17-13 with 5:12 left in the third.
Kessler, late in the first half under the two-minute drill, completed three of five passes, resulting in a Parkey 48-yard field goal and a 13-10 halftime lead. His 26-yard completion to Gary Barnidge?
Tannehill threw for 319 yards and three touchdowns for Miami, and Landry caught seven of those passes for 120 yards. Terrelle Pryor had a huge day for the Browns, contributing in every facet of the offense and almost spurring the team to victory.
"I didn't have any discussions with him, I'm done discussing any of that stuff with players", Gase said. "We'll see how he goes through the week".
NOTES: Miami RB Kenyan Drake started in place of Arian Foster, who suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 2 game against New England.
That, in a gist, remains Gase's view of Miami's issues on that side of the ball. "He does have a concussion, so he's going to be in the protocol".
