Which team can grab their first win? The New York Jets and Cleveland Browns both are coming off bad losses and are looking to get first their first win.

When the New York Jets take the field Monday night against the Cleveland Browns the first thing that will pop into my head is Bud Light.

No, I am not an alcoholic, but do you remember Bud Light’s promotion last year where they placed coolers all over Cleveland that would open when the Browns won a game? Yeah, they opened on a Thursday night after Baker Mayfield and company beat the Jets.

This is not the same Browns team from a year ago. This is not the same Jets team either. Gang Green has added pieces such as Le’Veon Bell and C.J. Mosley to be big pieces on each side of the ball.

However, one drastic change from a year ago is that the Jets will not have quarterback Sam Darnold available. Darnold, as everyone knows, is out this week and maybe a few more with mono.

This was going to be a matchup of two top-three picks from a year ago looking to improve on their first-year successes. Both Darnold and Mayfield gave their tormented fan bases one thing that they have not had in a long time: hope.

There was so much hope in fact with all the new additions to these two teams that both were being talked about as playoff contenders. That hope went to disgust after both teams suffered week one losses.

The Jets were handed a loss by the Buffalo Bills last Sunday. The Jets led the game 16-0, only to see that lead dwindle away as sophomore quarterback Josh Allen led his team to a victory in the final minutes.

Newcomers Bell and Mosley each scored a touchdown in the loss which will continue to fuel our hope, but the Jets still found a way to lose just like old times.

The Darnold to Jamison Crowder connection looked strong in week one, but with Darnold sidelined, former Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian will step in looking to try to keep things afloat in the middle of a gauntlet schedule.

A win this weekend by Gang Green would be a big step in the right direction. There are pieces on both sides of the ball and even with Darnold sidelined, Gotham football can continue to fight for wins.

There is no bigger stage for professional football than in New York and right now, the spotlight is shining on the Jets. Will they struggle or will they shine under the pressure?

I know one thing for certain, when the Jets meet the Browns Monday night, there will be stars all over the field and only one team can come out on top.

The Browns brought in a ton of big names this offseason, but coaching can beat talent and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will be up to the task.

I still have hope for this young season. I hope the Jets learned a few lessons from last week. I hope Trevor Siemian can drive the car. I hope the Browns are not drinking celebratory Bud Lights Monday night.
