New York Jets vs Cleveland Browns: Analysis & Picks 9/18/2022

September 15, 2022



Game Preview

The Browns’ goal is to simply stay afloat until Deshaun Watson’s suspension ends, and that’s exactly what they did in a narrow week 1 win over Carolina. The Jets, coming off a forgettable loss to the Ravens, will head to FirstEnergy Stadium looking to pull an upset.
The Browns might have to become used to playing close games until Watson returns. The offense isn’t overly impressive with Jacoby Brissett at the helm, but the defense is solid enough to prevent any blowouts. A predictably listless Week 1 performance by the Jets, however, was enough for Cleveland to settle in as definitive favorite ahead of Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Jets’ line didn’t look too stable in Week 1. Joe Flacco was sacked 3 times (in his defense, he did throw 59 passes), and his inability to move out of the pocket consistently hurt the Jets. Flacco’s lack of mobility means the Browns’ potent pass-rush can affect the game even without racking up sacks.
Myles Garrett played like Myles Garrett in Week 1, sacking Baker Mayfield twice. Jadeveon Clowney got in there for a half-sack, and safeties John Johnson III and Ronnie Harrison even registered a half-sack when the Browns brought the house against Mayfield. With Duane Brown on IR, New York’s offensive line needs to make genuine progress to hold up against Cleveland’s defense.
A few weeks ago, the prevailing thought was that rookie Breece Hall would be the Jets’ top running back this season. Enter Michael Carter, the second-year back who got more work on the ground than Hall in Week 1 and outshined the rookie. Carter ran for 60 yards on 10 carries, including a pair of nice breakaway runs. He finished with 100 total yards from scrimmage.
The Jets’ offense might run through him this week, so he needs to make a bigger impact than Christian McCaffrey did against this Browns defense in Week 1. Cleveland held McCaffrey to 33 yards on 10 carries, plus a modest 24 yards on 4 receptions. While the secondary made some mistakes, the defense won the game because it limited McCaffrey’s impact.
