By the Numbers: Browns can't capitalize on dominant defensive display

CLEVELAND — Breaking down Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Jets…

2 — In his NFL regular season debut, rookie defensive end Myles Garrett recorded two sacks — including one on his first play — in limited action. Garrett, the first-overall pick, returned to action for the first time since suffering a high ankle sprain days before the season opener.

194 — In place of DeShone Kizer, the Browns started backup quarterback Kevin Hogan in the second half. The second-year player from Stanford passed for 194 yards, two touchdowns and an interception on 16-of-19 completions.

419 — Despite self-inflicted wounds (turnovers and missed field goals), Cleveland's offense put up a season-high 419 yards.

212 — On the flip side, the Browns held the Jets to 212 yards and 4-of-12 on third down.

3 — Cleveland had success moving the ball but couldn't turn that production into points. It finished 0-for-3 on attempts in the red zone, turning the ball over twice (fumble, interception) and another time on fourth down.

77 — In his return to FirstEnergy Stadium, New York quarterback Josh McCown completed 23-of-30 (76.7 percent) passes for 194 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in his first-ever win in Cleveland. McCown spent the past two seasons with the Browns.

60 — Isaiah Crowell ran for a season-high 60 yards on 16 carries. The running back now has 62 carries for 194 yards.

34 — Cleveland's defense held Bilal Powell and the Jets' ground game to 34 yards and an average of 1.9 yards per carry.
