The Cleveland Browns travel to East Rutherford for the second consecutive week; this time playing the AFC East’s New York Jets. A week ago, Kevin Stefanski’s team defeated the Giants, 20-6. Sunday will be the second meeting between Baker Mayfield (the No. 1 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft) and Sam Darnold (the No. 3 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft). Mayfield won the first matchup in primetime two years ago.
If Cleveland reaches 11 wins, it will be the first time since 1994 when Bill Belichick was the team’s head coach and Nick Saban was the defensive coordinator. With a Cleveland win and a loss by the Dolphins, Ravens or Colts, the Browns clinch their first playoff berth since 2002.
Four of eight CBS Sports experts projected that the underdog Jets would cover the 9.5-point spread earlier this week. All eight projected the Browns to win straight up. According to the William Hill Sportsbook, via SportsLine, the spread has moved to New York +10. The Over/Under has been set at 47.5, as of Saturday morning.
