McCown went 1-10 in two seasons as a starter for the Browns, who released him on February 7 in a cost-cutting move. "I just tried to get behind the linemen and just push, but we didn't get enough yardage".
The New York Jets aren't quite at "Do you believe in miracles" level, but the thought of them playing Sunday for a chance to move above.500 was nearly unthinkable over the summer. Don't feel like you have to stress coming back and trying to make a wild effect or anything like that.
"Hell, my confidence is shaken", Jackson said when asked if Kizer could be rattled by being pulled Sunday for Hogan.
The Jets took possession and roared down the field, going 97 yards on eight plays for a put-away touchdown. "We have to be smart about our expectations of him this weekend". As an interior rusher, Garrett represents a considerable challenge for guards and centers to slide their feet and shut down gaps against his quickness.
"At the point of attack, I think we could have blocked it better", Jackson said. "We are just focusing on being dominant up front so we can help out the team". Whether you consider the Jets as a "tanking" team or not, it is clear they are rebuilding. "The pressure of playing quarterback in the National Football League for 70 plays a game and making all of the right decisions and understanding defenses and where the ball goes sometimes can be tough". There's going to be a couple that you miss, but obviously a player at my level, I expect to make all of those plays.
"I said this to you guys: It is going to happen at some point in time". Facing a third-and-2, Jets quarterback Josh McCown found a wide open tight end Eric Tomlinson for a 34-yard gain. The two might handle the bulk of the carries again.

For the rest of the game, Hogan at least managed the game at least somewhat well.
The Eagles (4-1) have won three consecutive games. "We were struggling. It was nearly like pulling teeth the whole game".
The Browns signed speedster Bryce Treggs off Philadelphia's practice squad this week and he may face the Jets. When Jackson pulled DeShone Kizer at halftime of the Jets game after talking the QB up since training camp, he made it next to impossible to go back to Kizer immediately.
The Jets defense has found its groove these two weeks.
The 21-year-old further endeared himself to Cleveland fans later in the contest. He's not looking for revenge.
Q: With you needing just one more sack to move into third on the team's all-time list, is the franchise record something you're chasing?
"The way we fought was good".
Sunday in Cleveland, Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap appeared to have one of the easiest sacks of his career. Mack and Jacoby Brissett each scored on TD runs for the Colts (2-3), who have won both games against winless teams. "When he's around the guys, he's the same person and brings the same energy, and I have no doubt he'll continue to do that". "But we got a lot of work to do".
