#Jets - #Browns tonight at 8:20pm in Cleveland on NBC.
• Last week was an all too familiar pill to swallow for #GangGreen faithful as the Jets came into the home opener with all the momentum in the world only to have a winnable game slip away. Things should work out well for the green and white this week if history repeats itself again as New York’s AFC representative is 5-0 against the dawgs since 2007.
• Rookie QB Sam Darnold set another record last week as he became the youngest player in NFL history to throw for over 300 yards in a game. The #Dolphins pass rush had him on the run all night though and expect DE Myles Garrett to have a similar impact tonight. Darnold will also try to notch his first clean sheet in the turnover column as a pro after throwing 3 interceptions in his first 2 games.
• The running game was totally non-existent last week after a big performance in week 1 (again offensive line play was a major issue). Last season the Browns held Jets runners to just 37 yards, including 12 by recently waived WR ArDarius Stewart. Crowell/Powell need to make an impact in this game if the team is going to get back over .500.
• Defensively, things have gone pretty well so far this year. The team is giving up 18.5 ppg but when you consider all the short fields they’ve had to defend and the pick 6 in game 1, they’ve more than held their own. Big plays have also come in bunches through 2 games with a total of 5 interceptions, 4 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 1 defensive touchdown already in the books.
• As for Cleveland, they’ll be without recently traded Wideout Josh Gordon, so that’s one less weapon to worry about. As for the Browns who are playing tonight, a pair of former AFC East rivals Tyrod Taylor and Jarvis Landry will be the ones to stop on offense. Defensively, previously mentioned DE Myles Garrett needs to be the offensive line’s focal point all night long. If the line can keep Darnold upright and open up even a few holes for Crowell/Powell, the Jets should be able to take care of business against a team looking for their first win since 2016.
If Baker Mayfield lives up to his potential, this man will be great for years to come. Highest game grade out of a rookie, passing up Carson Wentz! Hopefully Hue Jackson will choose to start Baker over Tyrod. #browns#brownsnation#nfl#bakermayfield
Die Aktion des Spieltags ist schon gelaufen, obwohl erst ein Spiel durch ist: Die @clevelandbrowns bedienen sich erfolgreich in der Trickkiste der @philadelphiaeagles! 😱😱😱 #Browns
Markiere einen Freund, der diese Aktion verpasst hat! 👏👏👏
The international hand gesture for “set me a browns” first derived in 1357 by Edgar Ronzas, a cigarette sharing enthusiast who encouraged others to often “twos up” or “set him one”. The hand gesture shown here is still used to this day. #Ronzas#twosup#setmeone#Browns
"Dilly, Dilly,'' Mayfield said, happy to provide the fans with both a cold brew and a scorching come-from-behind victory in his NFL debut.
"The best part about it was that we were here at home,'' said Mayfield. "You guys could feel the energy of the crowd and how badly they wanted it as well. We have to play for each other, but at the same time, this city deserves it.'' // #cleveland#ohio#thisiscle#clecomsports#clevelandbrowns#browns#bakermayfield#nfl
