No. 1 draft pick Myles Garrett set to make National Football League debut

No. 1 draft pick Myles Garrett set to make National Football League debut”

The Browns, behind the strong running of Crowell, moved to the Jets' 4, but they came up empty again when Jets safety Marcus Maye intercepted a pass intended for tight end Seth DeValve at the NY 2.

If they can get the running game going, it will take a ton of pressure off rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer, who ranks near the bottom of every statistical category. Powell and McGuire formulate an explosive tandem, and fans should expect to see more long runs in the future as long as the offensive line continues open gaps. The Browns need him to dominate the way Aaron Darnold dominates for the Rams.

Kevin Hogan took over for Kizer and guided the Browns to their first lead of the season. Hogan threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end David Njoku.

Cleveland went 1-15 last season, and McCown was 1-10 as a starter for Cleveland already, a washed up journeyman who simply fills his role on a poor football team. He also has two rushing touchdowns, tied for second most among NFL QBs.

"Myles has to walk out there and just play", Jackson said.

Here's how Jets special teams coordinator Brant Boyer described Peppers, the MI product: "He's a game breaker". That drive ended with rookie Zane Gonzalez missing a 52-yard field goal wide left. Kiser has won just four of his past 16 starts at quarterback, dating back to Notre Dame starts, and he has failed to complete 50 percent of his passes in three of his past eight games. Cleveland had two red-zone turnovers in the half and missed two field goals.

Later in the half, Garrett brought down McCown again for a second sack.

The two teams may not be the most interesting to watch on Sunday, but if you're looking for a potentially close game to follow in Week 5, this may be your best bet. As of Sunday morning, the Browns are one-point favorites and the over/under is at 40.5 for the teams.

The highly anticipated debut of Myles Garrett, the Browns' 2017 No. 1 draft pick, will happen Sunday against the Jets and it could give 0-4 Cleveland a glimmer of hope.

"But it's just about maintaining your focus", said Garrett, whose parents will travel from their home in Arlington, Texas, to attend the game at FirstEnergy Stadium.

McCown went just 1-10 in two seasons as a starter for the Browns, who released him on February 7 in a cost-cutting move. We're going to execute and do our job. Personally, I told him to just go out there and have fun.
