Browns top pick Myles Garrett set to make National Football League debut

However, on the Browns' next possession, Hogan was intercepted, and the Jets scored a pair of unanswered touchdowns to seal the comeback win. It was one of the plays that led to Kizer being benched. Cleveland outgained NY 175 yards to just 67 yards.
The Browns remember McCown as a great teammate and leader.
The Jets, on the other hand, have already exceeded expectations as they find themselves 2-2 and have their first opportunity of the season to be above.500 when it comes to their standings. "So, there's no guarantee in the National Football League that if you've got the No. 1 pick or you've got a Top 5 pick, that you're going to be able to draft a franchise quarterback". The Browns are just happy to have him on the field. Bad teams do what the Browns do. Facing a 4th and 1 at the Jets' four yard line in the fourth quarter, the Browns passed on a potential game-tying field goal, and tried to convert. "I thought Kevin came in and did some good things".
Gonzalez's inaccuracy struck again with 35 seconds left in the half when he missed a 39-yard field goal. They were successful in that venture and somehow the Browns trailed 3-0 at the half.
Rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer, who has regressed steadily since playing well in the opener, was pulled at halftime after turning the ball over twice inside the Jets 5. The move immediately made dividends. He's thrown three touchdown passes and two interceptions in three quarters of work, and has put 24 points on the board, including all 10 of the Browns' points in the 24-10 loss to the Ravens when he replaced Kizer for a quarter while the rookie was suffering from a migraine. This touchdown gave the Browns their first lead of the season. The score was set up by cornerback Morris Claiborne, who picked off Hogan's overthrow and returned it 28 yards.
New York's first three-game winning streak since 2015 has the Jets flying high. Hogan rebounded from his turnover, but Hue Jackson and his in-game decision-making reared its ugly head.
Jets linebacker Demario Davis, who played for the Browns last season, enters Sunday's game with 40 total tackles, second to Chargers' Jatavis Brown (41) in league. "Myles is going out there with an attitude that he wants to play and he wants to play really, really well". The one sustained drive was by the Browns but they fumbled inside the Jets' five yard-line as if it was on cue.
For anyone not in Cleveland, here is all the information you need to catch the game, Jets fans. Cleveland'sdefense is getting healthier with Garrett and Danny Shelton (calf) both due back this week.
