The Cleveland Browns will host the New York Giants tonight at FirstEnergy Stadium. Here is how you can watch or listen to the game.

The Cleveland Browns return to the field tonight for their second preseason game of the season as they host the New York Giants.

With another game coming up on Saturday, when the Browns travel south to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the next six days are going to be key in shaping the final roster.

Defensive tackle Danny Shelton is expected to be out with a knee injury for up to six weeks, Larry Ogunjobi, Trevon Coley and Caleb Brantley a chance to earn more playing time.

Starting left guard Joel Bitonio and backup offensive tackle Cameron Erving will also miss the team, with John Greco (no worries) and Rod Johnson (potential big worries) taking over the starting roles, respectively.

What’s that? Oh, yes, the quarterback situation!

For the second consecutive preseason game, Brock Osweiler will get the start, but this time rookie DeShone Kizer will be the second quarterback up.

Everyone associated with the Browns – from head coach Hue Jackson to quarterback coach David Lee to left tackle Joe Thomas to Kizer himself have said that Kizer is not ready to take over the starting quarterback role, but people hear what they want to hear, so with a good showing tonight and again on Saturday, Kizer can keep alive the idea that “there is still a chance” that he could open the season as the starting quarterback.

It is going to be a heck of a week for the Browns, and it all starts tonight against the Giants.  Here’s how you can watch or listen to tonight’s game:
