The Jets have not gotten to the quarterback at all this season.
If they can get the running game going, it will take a ton of pressure off rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer, who ranks near the bottom of every statistical category.
For the Browns, some see this game as maybe their best opportunity for a win the rest of this season.
The Cleveland Browns suffered a blow-out loss in Week 4 to division counterpart Cincinnati, losing 31-7. The one sustained drive was by the Browns but they fumbled inside the Jets' five yard-line as if it was on cue. Of course, anything can happen on any given Sunday but for the most part, on paper, the Jets have the advantage. This is not a joke, the Jets were actually trash-talking another team.
The Browns have two red-zone turnovers today and five this season, the most in NFL. Former Browns LB Demario Davis leads the Jets with 49 tackles.
DirecTV is available as well and you can stream the game through the NFL Sunday Ticket. The Jets looked like they would meet the Browns there in the spring, but instead, the team ripped off two big wins and has started heading in the opposite direction. Could that all be changing after the Jets' recent wins? The Jets did have success rushing the football, as Bilal Powell carried 21 times for 163 yards with a 75-yard long-run and a TD.
Garrett admitted afterward his ankle was sore but vowed it would get better with time. Crowell's chances have been limited because the Browns keep falling behind early and Hue Jackson abandons the game plan. "It's nice to have stats, but you have to get the dub (W) at the end of the day".
Neither one of these QBs have been setting the world on fire, but that doesn't mean that they won't be pivotal in the outcome of this game.
On his first trip back to Cleveland, Josh McCown experienced something new - and something unexpected. Maye wisely baited Kizer into throwing an interception.
Since a 33-30 overtime win at Baltimore in 2015, the Browns are 2-29, matching the worst 31-game stretch in league history.
Kizer was understandably upset following the game. He has received six targets in his last two outings and is averaging 17 yards per reception. "It is just about doing what I can, making the plays I am supposed to make and be who I am supposed to be on the field". The passing game centers around Robby Anderson (12 receptions, 204 yards, 1 TD) and Jermaine Kearse (18 receptions, 182 yards, 2 TD).
"It would be valuable to have a guy who's been through this and understands it all, but when you have a quarterbacks coach in Coach Jackson, essentially I already have that", Kizer said.
The team said the move was not injury-related.
