The New York Jets and the Cleveland Browns will face one another on Sunday in Week 5 of the NFL 2017 regular season. The game takes place from FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio and has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET. The game can be watched on TV on the Fox network, or online through live stream (details below).
The Jets will be hoping they can claim a win today against a struggling Browns team, and in doing so move to a winning record and keep up to remain competitive in the race for the postseason spots.
The Jets come into the game on 2-2, where as the Browns are still looking for their first win of the season and are on 0-4 through the opening month of the season.
The Browns had hoped that revamping their offensive line in the offseason could set the stage for a successful season. They had expected their running game to be powerful and intimidating to opponents, led by Isaiah Crowell. However, after four starts, Crowell has rushed for a measly 134 yards from 46 carries, and they are hardly striking fear into the NFL.
Amazingly the Browns have let to lead at any point in any game so far this season, so it's not just victory that eludes them, but they have yet to even experience being ahead in any game yet. They must change that today or they will drop to a fifth successive defeat here.
Earlier this week on NFL Thursday Night Football, the New England Patriots won a tight game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get themselves back to a winning record.
Things were close, however, and the Buccaneers were pushing in the fourth, but ultimately came up short to ensure the Patriots would claim a confidence boosting road win and move to 3-2.
The game came down to the final play, but once the dust settles the Patriots will be satisfied as a win is a win, and the game also saw quarterback Tom Brady tie Peyton Manning and Brett Favre for the most season wins by a quarterback with 186 victories.
Brady had a tough night, but still came up with some good stats. Despite throwing an interception, and losing a fumble, as well as getting hit all night, he managed to complete 30 of 40 passes for 303 yards and a touchdown.
As for the Buccaneers they will be disappointed having fallen just short of completing their comeback. Had quarterback Jameis Winston's final pass to OJ Howard been on target they would have stolen the win from the Patriots. Winston finished the game with 334 yards, completing 26 throws from 46 attempts.
The Buccaneers will also be looking at kicker Nick Folk, who missed three field goals, as a reason they came up short.
