The Cleveland Browns opened as early 7-point favorites over the New York Jets ahead of their Week 16 match-up on Thursday Night Football, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The over/under on the game is currently 36.5.

The Browns (10-5) are coming off of a dominant 36-22 victory over the Houston Texans. Joe Flacco had an awe-inspiring performance through the air, and Amari Cooper broke the franchise record for most receiving yards in a game. The defense was also lights out. The only concern heading into next game involve the injury to kicker Dustin Hopkins.

The Jets (6-9) are coming off of a 30-28 victory over the Washington Commanders. The Jets had been up 27-7, but then Jacoby Brissett led the comeback for Washington, before the Jets got a game-winning field goal to end regulation. It'll be an interesting game because while the Jets have the worst-ranked offense, they have one of the top-ranked pass defenses, which is a contrast against the poor pass defenses that Flacco has been thriving against.

The over/under for the game is 36.5.
