TOJ Tweet Summary: Week 5 – Jets vs. Browns

Daniel Essien with a #JetsTwitter Summary for the New York Jets week 5 win over the Cleveland Browns

The TOJ Tweet Summary carries on with the New York Jets week 5 matchup with the Cleveland Browns. Jets fans were on high alert with this being set up as a trap game after the Jets were widely praised all week. It turned out to be a pretty ugly but close game. Let’s see how #JetsTwitter experience this one.

Jets fans knew were hoping the Jets don’t underestimate their opponent.

1st Half

The game started off ugly with both teams looking horrible on offense. Then the Browns got a good drive going that had them at the Jets’ 3-yard-line. And then just as it looked like Cleveland would get their first lead of the regular season…

The Jets couldn’t capitalize on the turnover, however, and punted the ball back to the Browns. Cleveland then drove to the Jets’ 34 and after a third down stop, they attempted a field goal to give them their first lead of the regular season…

Jets got the ball back and then confirmed one man’s premonition…

Then on the Cleveland possession that followed, the Browns drove all the way down to the Jets’ 4-yard-line, again looking for their first lead of the regular season. And then…

Jets offense followed that up with nothing…3 and out…and then the Browns, after taking over on offense, had a chance to take their first lead of the season on a 39-yard field goal shortly before the half…

We all were thinking like Matt. But then the Jets suddenly turned into time management experts and somehow got to the edge of field goal range with 1 second left in the first half and Catanzaro nailed a 57-yard field goal.


2nd Half

The Browns came out strong in the second half after a QB change and finally got their first lead of the season on their first drive of the second half on a Kevin Hogan TD pass to rookie TE David Njoku making it 7-3.

The Jets offense continued to struggle as they again punted on the following drive. However, when they needed a spark, the defense showed up.

Jets then cashed in with a 2 yard TD pass from McCown to Austin Seferian-Jenkins to give the Jets a 10-7 lead.

Browns then mounted another long drive on the Jets’ defense. They had 4th and 2 at the Jets’ 4 yard line and Hue Jackson decided to go for it…

Jets offense then got into a rhythm, orchestrating a long 97-yard drive for TD to go up 17-7 and essentially put the game away.

Browns would get a TD on a Duke Johnson catch and run but it was too little too late as the Jets hung on to win 17-14.

Post Game

The Jets won their 3rd game in a row and even though it wasn’t pretty they found a way to win on the road. Jets fans were still conflicted about the “tank.”
