The (0-1-1) Cleveland Browns host the (1-1) New York Jets for Thursday Night Football in week 3. Kickoff is at 8:20 PM ET on the NFL Network.
The Browns are favorites at home for the first time since December of 2015 (they were also favorites on the road in week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts in 2017). The New England Patriots want the Browns to win to push the Jets down in the AFC East rankings and also because it’d be funny.
Yes, the Patriots own the Browns 2019 seventh round pick so any Cleveland victory would negatively impact that draft ranking, but the pick will be so late that it doesn’t even really lose any value if the Browns play well in 2018.
Use this as the open thread for discussion.
