With the first full weekend of football in sight, Mike Florio has three things to focus on during the opening slate of preseason games.
1.) Browns-Rams: How does Tavon Austin stack up against NFL corners? The rookie receiver was able to run past anyone who tried to cover him in college, but the West Virginia product will have to create separation against much better players if he hopes to continue his success on Sundays.
2.) Redskins-Titans: What will the "Pistol" formation look like with Jake Locker under center for Tennessee? The third-year quarterback has had difficulty staying healthy during his young career, but he is at his best when he's on the move.
3.) Broncos-49ers: Will Peyton Manning be able to throw the deep ball? The 12-time Pro-Bowler had some difficulty with driving the football down the field in 2012, but if his arm strength returns it will take the Denver offense to another level.
