Jets vs Browns History

The teams have met 29 times, including once in the playoffs, and the Browns have a slight 15-14 edge in the series.

The Jets eked out a 31-30 victory over the Browns last season in Week 2 in Cleveland. New York scored the winning touchdown with 22 seconds left on Joe Flacco’s 15-yard pass to Garrett Wilson.

The Jets have split their two Hall of Fame Game appearances. The Browns are 2-3 in Canton, which is just 60 miles from Cleveland.

No Rodgers for Jets

Arguably the biggest offseason move in the NFL was the Jets trading with the Green Bay Packers for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. However, the four-time MVP will not make his Jets’ debut in this game and has not played in a preseason game since 2018.

Coach Robert Saleh plans to start Zach Wilson, who has dropped to No. 2 on the Jets’ depth chart following the acquisition of Rodgers. Wilson has been a major disappointment since being drafted second overall in 2021.

Wilson started 22 games over the past two seasons and the Jets were 8-14 in those games. He completed just 55.2% of his passes for 4,022 yards while throwing for 15 touchdowns and being intercepted 18 times.

Journeymen Tim Boyle and Chris Streveler, who are battling to be the third-string quarterback, are also expected to play. Boyle made three starts for the Detroit Lions in 2021 and Streveler started one game for the Jets last season.

QB3 Candidates Playing for Browns

Browns coach Kevin Stefanski plans to play Kellen Mond at quarterback in the first half and rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson in the second half. Both are competing for the QB3 job behind Deshaun Watson and Joshua Dobbs.

The Browns claimed Mond off waivers from the Vikings just before the start of last season, just a year after Minnesota had drafted him in the third round. Mond did not play in any regular-season games in 2022 and but did come off the bench once for the Vikings as a rookie in 2021, though he threw just three passes.

Thompson-Robinson was the Browns’ fifth-round draft pick this year from UCLA. In college, he played in 49 games over five seasons and completed 63.3% of his passes for 10,710 yards and 88 touchdowns with 36 interceptions.

Jets vs Browns Prediction

A couple of factors work in the Jets’ favor here when making your Hall of Fame Game predictions. First, they will be playing three quarterbacks who have started NFL games. Secondly, Saleh has a 5-0 career record in the preseason and puts a little more emphasis on winning in the exhibition season.

Jets vs Browns Picks: Jets -1.5 (-110)
