JETS/DARNOLD v BROWNS
Week 3 and the NFL season is finding its legs. Here are 16 strong matchups to consider for your weekend viewing pleasure. Hey why not start with the Browns? When’s the last time the Browns got mixed up in the same sentence as the word pleasure?
But the Cleveland defense is set to give Jets QB Sam Darnold a hard time — after making veterans Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger both scratch their heads trying to penetrate the Browns secondary in Weeks 1 and 2. Sure, the Browns still lost, but you nitpick. Can the rookie Jets QB also get a win? The Jets may just give Cleveland the W they’ve been lacking since 2016, if Darnold gets fooled the way he did against the Dolphins when he surrendered possession twice with crucial picks.
