Week three of the NFL season kicks off on Thursday night with two teams who very well could finish near the bottom of the AFC standings. Sam Darnold and the New York Jets will make the trip to FirstEnergy Stadium to take on the Cleveland Browns.
The last time these two teams faced off was last year when the Jets came out ahead 17-14.
New York Jets
There was a lot of confidence around the New York Jets after what they did in the first game against the Detroit Lions. They created all kinds of turnovers and Sam Darnold looked good and it led to an easy victory over the Lions.
In the second game they took on the Miami Dolphins and it didn’t go as well and a lot of that fell on the quarterback.
He finished the game going 25/41 for 334 yards one touchdown and two interceptions. The Jets were down most of the game which meant a lot of throwing for Darnold which is why he finished with so many yards.
The interceptions are concerning though. It was his issue with the USC Trojans and it doesn’t look like it’ going to be any different than last year.
On the defensive side, they are going to need to force a few turnovers in this game. They also need to play well late in the game.
The Browns have kept each of the first two games close and chances are that will be the case in this one. They are going to need to make the plays on their last few drives if they want to win.
On the other side of this matchup is the Cleveland Browns who could easily be 2-0 at this point of the season but instead they come into this game with one win and a tie.
In their first game it came down to a missed Zane Gonzalez field goal that ended with a game in the tie and the Browns lost against the Saints because of a missed extra point and a field goal.
There is a very good chance a change gets made with the Kicker but if there is not it’s something that needs to be watched going into this game.
The Browns defense has actually played well this year and against the Saints they only gave up 21 points and gave the team a chance to win.
On the offensive side, they aren’t terrible but they haven’t looked particularly sharp so far this year. Against the Saints Tyrod Taylor threw for 246 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
To win this game the offense needs to play well and they need to get some good drives going early. They also need to see more success from the kicking game.

The Browns have been so close to winning and I think this weekend they finally break through and the beer fridges open in Cleveland.
