Cleveland Browns rookie tight end David Njoku showed off some Odell Beckham Jr. -level one-handed skills Sunday against the New York Jets. The Browns are far from a success, but their "salt the earth" rebuild may have inspired the New York Jets (2-2). Muhammad Wilkerson and Leonard Williams have not recorded a sack yet this season, which is a little concerning. In that Cincinnati game, Browns QB DeShone Kizer went 16-of-34 for 118 yards and a pick, while Isaiah Crowell led a meager rushing game on seven carries and 20 yards. Needless to say, being 0-4 is bad but they are a team that is easily a few years away from everything coming together.
Cleveland Browns rookie defensive lineman Myles Garrett began his pro career with a sack on his first National Football League play early in Sunday's game versus the New York Jets at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Last season was a bit of an outlier, but on average Cleveland wins its first game of the season in Week 4.6 which we will round up to 5.
"Let's watch the tape and see where we are, but again, we weren't functioning as well as I thought we could on offense", Jackson said. He practiced fully on Friday and will play against the Browns. If the Jets do not play down to their opponent this week and continue the momentum they have right now, they should walk out of Cleveland victorious.
Crowell fumbled a pitch inside New York's 10, Gonzalez missed two field goals and Kizer threw an interception at the goal line. It was the Jets' first scoring opportunity of the game.
But when Cleveland Browns rookie defensive end Myles Garrett takes the field for the first time in the regular season today against the New York Jets at FirstEnergy Stadium, they want him to be himself, do what he does best and create some havoc in the backfield when possible.
For anyone not in Cleveland, here is all the information you need to catch the game, Jets fans.
Jackson has denied reports of a rift between him and the front office and batted down separate reports that his players have quit on him.
Garrett added another sack and made an impact on plays that he didn't record any official statistic. That relationship in itself is something that I've used as a mentor tool, but also, I'll go elsewhere.
Jets: RB Bilal Powell exited in the second quarter with a calf injury, forcing third-stringer Elijah McGuire into action.
"You don't get to relax until the season's over", he said.
