The Cleveland Browns will look to improve to 2-0 on the new NFL season when they take on the New York Jets on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Cleveland is coming off a dramatic Week 1 win over their former quarterback Baker Mayfield and the Carolina Panthers, and it is hoping to build off that momentum and take another step towards possibly having a real shot at reaching the postseason.
The Browns jumped out to a 14-0 lead last Sunday versus the Panthers, but they blew their lead when Mayfield found Robbie Anderson for a long touchdown reception in the fourth quarter, which was followed by a field goal by Eddy Pineiro to but Carolina ahead 24-23.
But rookie kicker Cade York converted a 58-yard field goal as time expired to give the Browns the win, making him an instant celebrity.

The Jets got blown out in Week 1 by the Baltimore Ravens, and although they don’t have a very talented roster, the Browns will need to maintain their focus, as they won’t have a large margin of error as long as quarterback Deshaun Watson is suspended.
The last time Cleveland started a season with a 2-0 record was all the way back in 1993, when Bill Belichick was their head coach.

A Golden Opportunity For The Browns
A win over the Jets on Sunday would create lots of good vibes throughout Northeast Ohio about the Browns and the possibility of only their third playoff appearance since the franchise was reestablished in 1999.
The formula will likely be the ground game and a strong defense, as Cleveland got 141 rushing yards from Nick Chubb while holding Carolina to just 261 total yards, fifth-best in the NFL in Week 1.

Wide receiver Amari Cooper will need to play a bigger role than he did last week, however.
He had just 17 yards on three catches, and the team as a whole had only 138 passing yards on Sunday, which was next-to-last in the league.
