OUR PREDICTION: I don't like anything about this game. You're either forced to back a winless Browns team or a Jets squad that has won back-to-back games but was also accused of tanking before the season. In my dart-throw special of the day, I'll back the team that has actually won a game. The Jets aren't terribly talented but they're playing hard for Todd Bowles, whose seat appears to be cooling by the week. The Jets have also won four straight meetings between these two teams, including a 31-28 road win last season in a game that, ironically, Josh McCown started for the Browns. No offense to Deshone Kizer, who does offer some upside, but he's been the anti-Deshaun Watson. Going back to his days at Notre Dame, Kizer is 4-12 over his last 16 starts under center.
