Things To Look For

After a shaky start, the New York Jets have righted the ship, per say, and responded with wins over the Dolphins and Jaguars. But now they hit the road again and it’s a place which has not been kind to them.

Meanwhile, the Browns can’t seem to win no matter where they appear. It’s a team that has lost 19 of its last 20 games dating back to the start of 2016. And if rookie quarterback Deshone Kizer doesn’t do a better job of securing the football, Cleveland’s current skid figures to continue.
