According to DraftKings Sportbook, the New York Jets are 6.5 point underdogs on the road against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. That’s a pretty fair spread. The Browns have a good defense, an outstanding running game, edge rushers that project to give the Jets all kinds of trouble, and a quarterback in Jacoby Brissett who can conservatively manage a victory if not asked to do too much. At home, against a Jets team that unfortunately features a statuesque Joe Flacco under center, a rookie at right tackle, and an offensive line that was terrible in pass protection last week, the Browns should have enough to take this game. Browns over the Jets.
