When the Browns have the ball
The Browns traded for Tyrod Taylor this offseason so that they would not have to start whichever quarterback they drafted No. 1 overall until that player was 100 percent ready. The thinking was that Taylor would provide a certain level of competence the Browns have not achieved over the past several seasons, and remove the pressure for Hue Jackson and company to push the rookie (Baker Mayfield) into the starting lineup. Through two weeks of the 2018 season, it does not necessarily look like that plan will last all that long.
When the Jets have the ball
Numbers-wise, Sam Darnold came crashing back to earth in Week 2 after an excellent debut against the Lions in New York’s season-opening win. As many have noted, however, the performance Darnold put on tape in Week 2 was actually arguably better than what he’d done in the opener. He’s averaging 8.6 yards per attempt through two games while also completing over 66 percent of his passes, an excellent sign for his ability to push the ball downfield while maintaining efficiency. Darnold has taken too many sacks so far but he’s not been rushed or harried in the pocket. Contrarily, he looks extremely comfortable managing the rush and picking out the open receiver before delivering the ball on time and on target.
Browns hope to kick aside winless streak vs. Jets

They’re still winless, and will once again try to end their long winless streak when they face the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football (5:20 p.m. PT/8:20 p.m. ET, NFL Network or try FuboTV (free trial).
