5 reasons to watch the Jets take on the Browns on ‘Thursday Night Football’

The Jets and Browns meet tonight on Thursday Night Football for their 25th all-time meeting in the regular season. While both teams roster first round rookie quarterbacks, only one will start in tonight’s game.

That’s the No. 3 overall pick, Sam Darnold. After throwing a pick-six on his first NFL pass, Darnold has looked pretty good through two weeks.

Darnold became the youngest player in NFL history (21 years, 103 days old) to throw for at least 300 yards in a game, when he passed for 334 yards and one touchdown in the Jets’ Week 2 loss to the Dolphins.

The Jets and Browns were two of the NFL’s worst teams last year, but in Week 1 both looked relatively good. The Jets trampled over the Lions, while the Browns tied with the Steelers. Then in Week 2, the Jets lost to the Dolphins while the Browns’ (now-cut) kicker cost them a win over the Saints.

Tonight’s matchup is another Thursday night game that will only be broadcast on NFL Network, and while it would be easy to write these teams off, the game might actually be fun to watch!
