Myles Garrett got a sack on his first National Football League play

While McCown wasn't viewed as an asset under center entering the fall, his play has been the most consistently good thing about the Jets' offense thus far. "We have a big game this week". This is not a joke, the Jets were actually trash-talking another team.

Instead, they've reached that mark in five games, with three consecutive wins.

The New York Jets, forecast to be one of the worst teams in the National Football League before the season began, are on a roll they want to continue as long as they can.

So instead of leading by double digits, the Browns went to the locker room at halftime trailing 3-0 after Catanzaro's long boot.

On their next drive, Cleveland drove all the way down to the Jets four, but Kizer was intercepted by Marcus Maye at the goal line to get NY out of trouble.

Jets running backs Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire combined for 256 yards rushing in the 23-20 victory over Jacksonville last week. In fact, after this performance, the New York Jets increased their yards per carry from 3.6 to 4.9 on the season. I really liked him coming out - you see why they have him back there on both punts and kicks. The Browns are now 1-19 under Hue Jackson and have dropped 29 of their last 31, seemingly forever "rebuilding".

Rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer is part of that young nucleus, but the 21-year-old second-round pick out of Notre Dame has struggled a bit in the early going, as rookies are wont to do.

"It's mixed emotions when you playing against brothers on the other side and people you respect", McCown said of Jackson. As of Sunday morning, the Browns are one-point favorites and the over/under is at 40.5 for the teams.

But let's not. This is not 1987 and it was not a championship game and Josh McCown is no John Elway. The Browns then went 34 yards in seven plays with a chance to put up some points before the half.

Not bad for a "bridge to nowhere" who won once in his 11 starts with the Browns.

Now, he leads the Jets having won twice as many games and completing almost 10 percent more of his passes. Whichever QB plays better in could decide who wins this one.

Follow along as we bring you live updates and analysis from the game from kickoff through the final whistle in the comments section below. He has received six targets in his last two outings and is averaging 17 yards per reception.

Myles Garrett brings down Jets quarterback Josh McCown during the Browns' loss to the Jets on October 8 at FirstEnergy Stadium. Although Cleveland wasn't going to win, he did make it interesting as he took a swing pass and weaved his way 41 yards for a touchdown to make the score 17-14! The passing game centers around Robby Anderson (12 receptions, 204 yards, 1 TD) and Jermaine Kearse (18 receptions, 182 yards, 2 TD). Sammie Coates, acquired via trade from Pittsburgh on September 2 and Kasen Williams, a waiver claim September 3 from Seattle, should get more targets Sunday.

The only steps they've taken have been into uncertain murkiness - about many facets of the team.
