Thursday Night Football Week 3: New York Jets vsCleveland

      The last time they won was December 24, 2016. After going 0-16 last year, you wouldn’t think an 0-1-1 start would inspire confidence, but it has in the Browns. It wasn’t that they tied in their first game or lost by 3 in their second, it was whom the opponents were that inspires confidence.

they tied the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-21 and then lost by only 3 points last week (21-18) to the New Orleans Saints. Even more inspiring, they had chances to win both games, if it wasn’t for the difficulties of their kicker. 

The schedule makers were not kind to the Jets, though, as this will be their third game in 11 days. They played the Monday night game in week one, followed by Sunday in week two and now Thursday in week three.

NFL team, that can be both brutal and exhausting, but coach Todd Bowles won’t look at is as an excuse.

Thursday night when the Jets travel to FirstEnergy Stadium to take on the Browns. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 pm ET. The spread comes in with the Cleveland Browns as 3-point favorites in this one.

the Jets would really like to secure this victory, mostly because they then have the daunting task of taking on theJacksonville Jaguars in week 4.

Crowell has 22 carries for 137 yards and 2 touchdowns while Powell has 17 carries for 66 yards. With a tenacious Browns’ defense and defensive coach Gregg Williams, it is very likely that Darnold will feel a little pressure Thursday night.

There are signs that is starting to change, though. The Browns defense is actually beginning to be pretty formidable, especially with budding star Myles Garrettleading the way.

the Browns did lose a weapon earlier this week. They traded wide receiver Josh Gordon to the New England Patriots. While there is no doubting Gordon’s talent, his off-field issues became a constant headache and the Browns are hoping it is addition by subtraction. Still, quarterback Tyrod Taylor has options around him in running back Carlos Hyde (38 rushes, 105 yards, 2 touchdowns), Jarvis Landry (12 receptions for 175 yards), and Antonio Callaway (3 receptions, 81 yards and a touchdown).

Showing promise in the first two weeks against teams that, at least on paper, seem much better than the Jets, the Browns have taken it down to the wire. This week, it will finally translate to a win. I think it is a defensive game (so taking the under may not be a bad play), but ultimately I think the Browns win it by a touchdown and cover the spread.
