Interesting Stats / Notes

  • RB Carlos Hyde - With a rushing touchdown, becomes the first Browns RB since Peyton Hillis in 2011 to have at least one rushing score in each of the first three games of a single season.
  • The last time the Browns forced multiple fumbles in three consecutive games was Weeks 8, 10-11 in 2003.
  • With any defensive player securing at least 2.0 sacks, it would be the first time in franchise history that a Browns player has at least 2.0 sacks in each of the first three games to start a season.
  • The Browns forced two turnovers against the Saints last week. Paired with the six the team had Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team’s eight takeaways are the most by a Browns squad through the first two weeks of a season since 2001 (nine).


  • Jets QB Josh McCown was with the Browns from 2015-16. He set the Browns single-game passing record with 457 passing yards on Oct. 11, 2015.
  • Jets RB Isaiah Crowell spent the first four years of his career with the Browns (2014-17).

  • The Browns have a 12-12 all-time record against the Jets.

  • The last time these two teams met was on October 8, 2017, when the Jets beat the Browns by a final score of 17-14. It was the debut for DE Myles Garrett, who registered a sack on his first career snap. The Jets led 3-0 at the half, which led to Hue Jackson benching DeShone Kizer in favor of Kevin Hogan. Hogan led a touchdown drive, capping it off with a 2-yard pass to TE David Njoku to put Cleveland up 7-3. The Jets got 14 unanswered to lead 17-7, and RB Duke Johnson’s 41-yard touchdown catch-and-run with under two minutes to play made it 17-14. The onside kick failed, though, allowing the Jets to hold on.
