BEREA, Ohio—Eric Mangini says Cleveland’s starting quarterback derby remains a neck-and-neck race.

Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson began training camp in a dead heat and after two exhibition games, the first-year Browns coach said Monday he is no closer to choosing a starter for the Sept. 13 opener against Minnesota.

Anderson started Saturday’s 27-10 win over Detroit. He led the Browns to their first offensive touchdown in seven games and finished 8 of 13 for 130 yards and one interception. Quinn, who started the exhibition opener in Green Bay, played just two-plus drives against the Lions.
