Browns vs Jets: Offense shines in 31-10 victory
In the Browns vs Jets game, it was all about the battle of the defenses and which team would capitalize on costly mistakes. The Jets’ defense was absolutely on fire today, causing interceptions, miscues and sacks. Both David Harris and Muhammad Wilkerson each had a sack as Marcus Williams had an interception off of Johnny Manziel.
One area that had a big question mark was the Jets’ offense. Needless to say aside from the lone interception off of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, the Jets’ offense was indeed clicking on all cylinders. Fitzpatrick ended his game with 15/23 for 179 passing yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.

The rushing attack of the Jets was on point as Chris Ivory led the assault with 91 yards on 20 carries for 2 touchdowns. Bilal Powell also totaled 62 yards on 12 carries in relief of Ivory.
It was also great to see the impact wide receiver Brandon Marshall had on offense as him and Eric Decker formed quite the duo.
Marshall totaled 62 receiving yards on 6 receptions and a touchdown while Decker totaled 37 receiving yards on 2 receptions and a touchdown. Overall, if this offenses plays as efficiently as it did in this game, the Jets will definitely be a contender in the AFC East.
One area of concern was the rash of injuries that hit the Jets. Lorenzo Mauldin had a bit of a scare as he was taken to a local hospital after suffering a serious neck/head injury. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie also had another scare as he went down with what looked like a severe knee injury. Once the official updates are out, we’ll keep you posted here at The Jet Press.
Overall, it’s great to see Todd Bowles get his first victory in his head coaching debut. All the players looked like they were having fun and everything came together nicely throughout the course of the game. The Jets’ offense achieved 333 total yards in total which is a great chance of pace from their abysmal efforts of last season.
