-The Browns will be wearing orange tops, white pants, and brown socks.
-The Browns will host more than 25 members from the 1986 AFC Central Championship team for a special tribute to honor the 30-year anniversary of one of the franchise’s most successful seasons. The Browns’ commemoration is highlighted by a special halftime ceremony that will celebrate the group’s team and individual accomplishments, as well as the excitement generated in Cleveland when the team recorded its most regular season wins (12) since joining the NFL and reached the AFC Championship Game for the first time in club history.
There are quite a few former Browns connections on the Jets:
- Jets head coach Todd Bowles spent four seasons (2001-2004) coaching the Browns secondary.
- Jets offensive line coach Steve Marshall spent two seasons (2007-08) in the same role with the Browns.
- Jets assistant defensive backs coach Daylon McCutcheon appeared in 103 games with the Browns as a defensive back from 1999-2005.
- Jets defensive line coach Pepper Johnson played three seasons (1993-1995) as a linebacker with the Browns.
- Jets special teams coordinator Brant Boyer played for the Browns from 2001-2003 and spent time with the Browns as a training camp intern in 2009.
- CB Buster Skrine was drafted by the Browns in 2011 and was with the club through 2014. TE Kellen Davis played for the Browns in 2013.
-ILB Demario Davis was originally drafted by the Jets in the third round (77th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft and spent four seasons (2012-2015) in New York.
-With 105 rushing yards, RB Isaiah Crowell would be the first Browns player to rush for at least 600 yards in three consecutive seasons since Kevin Mack in 1985-87.
-With a sack, OLB Emmanuel Ogbah will be the first rookie to record a sack in three straight game since Barkevious Mingo recorded a sack in the first three games of his career.
-The last time these two teams was on September 13th, 2015 at FirstEnergy Stadium, when the Jets defeated the Browns by a final score of 31-10. QB Josh McCown was in his first game with the club, but then suffered the infamous helicopter fumble play at the goal line on an otherwise effective drive.
The Browns were in the game at the half, down just 14-10. One of the momentum-shifting plays of the first half came when WR Brandon Marshall stripped FS Tashaun Gipson of the football after he had intercepted a pass by QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.
