Myles Garrett makes National Football League debut

Share

Since 2002 - when the Houston Texans were given the first overall pick - the 2004 San Diego Chargers are the only team that won more than three games and still owned the No. 1 pick in the ensuing draft.

Myles Garrett made his National Football League debut on Sunday against the New York Jets, and he appeared to be worth the wait for the Cleveland Browns.

Duke Johnson vies for yards against Freddie Bishop (50) during the Browns' loss to the Jets on October 8 at FirstEnergy Stadium.

So, the Browns are five games into the season, nearly one-third of the way to another 1-15 season, or worse, with uncertainty again surrounding the quarterback position, a head coach starting to coach like he's aware that ownership's patience isn't limitless, and a schedule that has no more winless opponents in their immediate future. Additionally, Kevin Hogan was the best quarterback for the Browns in this game.

However, the Eagles have the second-to-lowest number of tackles in the league thus far, making it extremely unlikely we will get to see this local National Basketball Association homage in the near future.

McCown threw a 2-yard TD pass to Austin Seferian-Jenkins in the third quarter and a 24-yarder to Jermaine Kearse in the fourth to give the Jets a 17-7 lead en route to their third straight victory. I'm not here just to get players better.

Jackson refused to name his starting quarterback for next week, but with the toothpaste now out of the tube, good luck trying to put it back in.

McCown was 23 of 30 for 194 yards, two touchdowns and one pick.

After missing the first four games because of an ankle sprain suffered during training camp, Garrett was used primarily on passing downs. He didn't stop there as he finished with two total sacks.

"I always want more", Garrett said.

Chandler Catanzaro was ready to kick a 65-yard field goal at the end of the first half Sunday if the coaches would let him.

Crowell fumbled a pitch inside New York's 10, Gonzalez missed two field goals and Kizer threw an interception at the goal line.

RB Bilal Powell left the game in the second quarter with a calf injury.

The backbreaker came on third down, where the Browns had otherwise thrived throughout the day.
