Final Score

Cleveland Browns 23, New York Jets 3

Cleveland Browns

Odell Beckham Jr. showed some flash tonight, and it wasn't just on his wrist. He lit up New York's secondary all night long, highlighted by a one-handed catch deep down the field as well as a long touchdown on an RPO where he took the ball 89 yards to the house.

Baker Mayfield‘s performance was up and down. He held onto the ball for too long and caused a number of pressures by doing so. Still, he made some good throws and played well enough to win the game on a night where the other side couldn't move the ball much.

Rookie Takeaways

Greedy Williams turned in a strong performance in coverage, picking up multiple forced incompletions and a defensive stop in this one.

New York Jets

Despite missing top pick Quinnen Williams, the Jets' defensive line still generated pressure off of a combination of stunts. Baker also held onto the ball for too long and failed to step up in the pocket when he needed to.

The secondary struggled to contain OBJ and the Browns' passing game, allowing far too many open receptions including one costly miscue at the end of the first half on a pass to Jarvis Landry that allowed the Browns to kick a field goal with the clock winding down.

Rookie Takeaways

Blake Cashman recorded multiple defensive stops and a batted passes in an all-round strong performance for the rookie linebacker.
