Jets Win a Close One Against the Browns
Well the New York Jets are now 3-2, this was the season that the Jets were going to only win that many games at best. Granted it is still very young in the season and their schedule is only going to get tougher from here on out. Their schedule is going to get tougher and if they played like they did today, you may need to step away from the TV for awhile. They go on to win 17 to 14 against the winless Cleveland Browns and let’s say they are winless for a reason.
The Jets defense was all over the Browns as they made three goal line stops and got the ball back to their offense. Marcus Maye and Morris Claiborne recorded an interception and Freddie Bishop recovered a fumble. The Defense only gave up 14 points to the Browns and their run defense was very much improved from the first two weeks. They gave up 139 yards rushing in total, Crowell ran for 60 yards on sixteen carries. Quarterback DeShone Kizer was benched in the second half of the game and Kevin Hogan came in his place and did a better job going 16 for 19 with 194 yards, 2 TDs and an INT. Kizer finished 8/17 with 87 yards and an INT. The defense had a solid day and looks like they are getting better week after week.
The offense on the other hand looked awful today as they turned the ball over after they got it back from the defense the previous drive. McCown finished the day going 23/30 with 194 yards, 2 TDs and an INT. The run game was nonexistent as they had a combined total of 34 yards on the ground and only scored 17 points in a game where honestly they should’ve beaten the snot out of the Browns.
I know the Jets are technically not supposed to be 3-2 right now but they looked decent the past two weeks and I as well as everyone else thought this game was a breakout game for the Jets, but regardless a win is a win and they are now tied for first place with Buffalo and New England. The Jets will play the Patriots next week so they really need to get things straightened out if they want any chance of beating the super bowl champs.
