The Browns lead the all-time series 12-11 including the classic overtime playoff win in January 1987.
It's great that Myles Garrett registered a sack on his first National Football League play after returning from missing a month with a cranky ankle, and it's even better than he finished his debut with two sacks. Bilal Powell is expected to get the start a week after he rushed for a career-high 163 yards against Jacksonville. At this rate, he'll finish the season with less than 600 yards. He missed last week's game after suffering a calf injury in practice.
Jackson also chose to replace Kizer in the second half for backup Kevin Hogan, perhaps a sign the coach is anxious about losing his job.
Week 5's visit to Cleveland presents another entirely winnable game against the Browns (0-4), who've won one game since the start of 2016.
The Browns' receiving corps remains a huge disappointment: Kenny Britt has 8 catches and had 2 big drops last week.
With under two minutes to play in the first half, Garrett brought down NY quarterback Josh McCown for his second sack. Jackson initially called on the field-goal team to try to tie the game.
Can the Jets rise over.500 and score their first three-game win streak since 2015? Two plays later, McCown connected with Austin Seferian-Jenkins on a 2-yard fade for a 10-7 Jets lead.
Fair or not, Garrett will be measured by what Trubisky does against the Vikings, even though they play on opposite sides of the ball.
-Browns LT Joe Thomas vs. Jets DE Kony Ealy. Somebody that can continue to raise the bar for our team. Sammie Coates, who's missed two games with a hamstring injury, was a full participant Friday and is on track to return. While McCown wasn't viewed as an asset under center entering the fall, his play has been the most consistently good thing about the Jets' offense thus far.
-Jets LT Kelvin Beachum vs. DE Myles Garrett.
The top pick in this year's NFL Draft is finally ready to make his regular season debut. Despite their 0-5 record now, the Browns should be hopeful for their defense with how Garrett performed in his debut for the team.
PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Browns MLB Joe Schobert. McCown knows Schobert's strengths and weaknesses because they were teammates previous year. He has compiled a 100-plus rating in two of the past three games. Starting LB Jamie Collins missed his third straight game with a concussion. Nothing has gone their way as it's hard-pressed to see them beat the Jets who are riding some nice momentum after back-to-back wins. He also was involved in two red zone turnovers.
On the season, he has only three TDs and eight picks.
The Cleveland Browns suffered a blow-out loss in Week 4 to division counterpart Cincinnati, losing 31-7.
Gang Green completed the junior varsity portion of their schedule Sunday with a 17-14 victory over the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium. They will get a huge lift with Myles Garrett in the lineup.
