CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Browns are home favorites for the first time since December 13th, 2015. The Browns are hosting the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football. This is only national game the Browns will have this season. Cleveland is 0-1-1 on the season. While the Jets are 1-1 on the season.
Here are three keys for tonight’s game:
1) Pressuring Sam Darnold: Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold was on the Cleveland Browns radar all draft season. Most thought he was going to be the first overall pick for the Browns. Instead, the Browns drafted Baker Mayfield out of Oklahoma and the Jets took the former USC Trojan with the third overall pick. Darnold will have his toughest challenges tonight. He will be facing a Browns defense that has an NFL leading eight turnovers this season. Darnold has thrown three turnovers this season.
