Their running game has been poor, but they also haven't featured the run almost enough.
In short, Jackson believed in his players.
Another takeaway by the Jets thwarted Cleveland's next scoring drive.
Jackson said Garrett woke up Monday a little sore but should be able to assume a greater workload as the recovery continues.
"Too much" came in the first half against the Jets, with Kizer's goal-line interception putting the coach over the edge. Officially, the down and distance was fourth-and-2.
"Like every game in the National Football League, it's going to be a dogfight", cornerback Morris Claiborne said. But under Jackson, he has yet to do that for his young signal callers.
Jackson said he'll wait to watch the tape before making a decision on his quarterback for next week when the Browns visit Houston. They were like, 'Coach, go for it.
So, what was learned in Cleveland's 17-14 Week 5 loss to NY? In the first three quarters, NY had gained 103 yards on eight possessions. I won't be playing this game, but a Patriots blowout is more likely than the Jets hanging around. LB Jamie Collins (concussion) has been cleared to return to practice, head coach Hue Jackson said Monday.
However, the ball bounced off of the rookie's hands and onto the ground, leaving Rams fans in disbelief.
"Some of them are ticky-tacky, some of them are legit and some of them you can question", Bowles said. "It's always tough with the Jets and we know it'll be tough this week".
"My decision is what is best for the team, what is best for our team to put us in position to win, also, what is best for DeShone", Jackson said.
"I felt good about what we were doing on offense, that we could knock them off the ball there", the coach said. We can not overlook that and place the entire blame on you.
Of course it is not all on Jackson since he doesn't make every personnel call, but his play-calling needs work.
The statistics actually favored Jackson.
By winning three games in a row, the Jets have saved football season around here, for now at least, and pending the Yankees' fortunes in the ALDS soon could be the unquestioned stars of our sports show. Inside the 5, teams were 64 percent (7-for-11). They're averaging 28.8 points and 357.4 yards per game on the offense while the defense is holding foes to 26 points and 335.4 yards per game.
"If that is the decision that we make, then I think it will benefit him tremendously because he would get a chance to get a breather and take a look at it from a different lens and not from that pressure", Jackson said.
They've been beaten for huge plays by Dallas Cowboys wideout Brice Butler (two catches for 90 yards and a touchdown) and Philadelphia Eagles wideouts Nelson Agholor (72-yard touchdown) and Torrey Smith (59-yard score). The Browns still went on to lose, though the 24-year-old proved to be a bit more effective than the rookie.
The Browns will travel to face the Houston Texans in Week Six and Deshaun Watson, the QB Cleveland might have drafted with the 12th overall pick. "It's both, but winning is first because that's what we do this for".
ProFootballReference's calculator had the Browns' win probability at 50.3 percent before that fourth down. "If you turn the ball over, you don't have a chance to win".
Had the Browns kicked a field goal, their win probability would not have changed a lot. "I'm just happy we stopped them".
