Myles Garrett will play his first game with the Browns on October 8 against the Jets after missing four games with a sprained ankle. "I can't wait to see him actually go out there and get some snaps and just let him let loose".

Tanking is certainly a real thing in the NBA, but it's far easier to predict which college or high school basketball players will make an impact at the next level. The Browns are off to an ugly start this season (again), posting a 0-4 record and looking like the team is heading straight to the top of the 2018 NFL Draft. "But dang gummit, I got me a win at FirstEnergy Stadium". The Browns are now 1-19 under Hue Jackson and have dropped 29 of their last 31, seemingly forever "rebuilding".

Meanwhile, the Browns are 5-16-1 ATS in their last 22 versus the AFC and 5-17 ATS in their last 22 games following an ATS loss. Bass, acquired off waivers on September 21, leads the Jets with two sacks. He didn't stop there as he finished with two total sacks. "I can move, I can run, I can bend, and if I can do that, I can be out there and I can make a difference". Are the Browns better off just lying down and playing the long game? The Jets are treating Peppers with plenty of respect, and they held a similarly dynamic returner, the Raiders' Cordarrelle Patterson, in check in Week 2.

McCown completed 23 of his 30 attempts for 194 yards and two touchdowns with one interception, while Browns starter DeShone Kizer was successful with just eight of his 17 attempts for 87 yards with one interception and a lost fumble. I think the guy can take it to the house on any play. On third-and-3 from the Jets 4, Kizer threw a bad pass that Jets rookie safety Marcus Maye intercepted, ending another Browns scoring threat. For me, it is about doing whatever I can to grow in whatever Coach (Jackson) decides needs to be the right room for growth for that week. "I think we have to be smart about our expectations of him", said Jackson.

Cleveland out-gained the Jets by a 419-212 margin. If the Jets want to not only win the game, but win over some fans in the process, NY will have to be on its A-game.

"Sacks don't mean anything if you don't win", Garrett said.

McCourty is playing at a high level for the struggling Browns and is now the sixth ranked cornerback in the NFL per pro football focus.

National Football League teams share revenues from online merchandise sales, but Stehlik said they get to keep the profits from their "brick-and-mortar" transactions.
