By the Numbers: Browns snap 635-day winless streak against Jets in primetime

CLEVELAND — Breaking down a 21-17 win (!!!) over the Jets by the numbers…

635 — For the first time in 635 days, the Browns secured their first victory since Christmas Eve 2016.

201 — Cleveland’s quarterback of the future was its star tonight. Rookie Baker Mayfield was brilliant in his regular-season debut, passing for 201 yards on 17-of-23 throws. Mayfield received the nod when veteran starter Tyrod Taylor suffered a concussion in the second quarter.

3 — The Browns added three more takeaways — two interceptions and a forced fumble — against New York. They have 11 turnovers in three games.

103 — Running back Carlos Hyde combined for 103 all-purpose yards, including 98 rushing, and two touchdowns on 23 carries.

108 — Jarvis Landry led the Browns’ wide receivers with eight catches for 103 yards. Landry, the three-time Pro Bowler, also threw a pass to Mayfield for a two-point conversion to tie the game at 14 in the third quarter. 

8 — Second-year defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi was a force on the interior defensive line, registering eight tackles and two tackles-for-loss.

169 — Mayfield’s draft-mate, Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold, passed for 169 yards and two interceptions on 15-of-31 throws against a Browns defense that pressured him all night.

3 — The Browns got to Darnold twice. One time, it was defensive end Myles Garrett, who now has three sacks this season. ​
