INDIANAPOLIS – Andrew Luck and Brandon Weeden spent their rookie years trying to prove they could win in the NFL.
The two second-year quarterbacks have come a long way in a year, and both are entering Saturday night's preseason game more like grizzled veterans.
Both are expected to play into the third quarter, and both plan to use their most extensive playing time of the preseason to fine-tune a few things before the regular season.
Luck, Indy's franchise quarterback, wants to get the Colts' new power-running game in sync.
Weeden, who was selected as the Browns starter on Tuesday, wants to show everyone that new coach Rob Chudzinski made the right call after seeing Weeden lead Cleveland on six scoring drives in two games.
