The New York Jets head to Cleveland to face the Browns on Thursday night, exclusively live on Sky Sports Action and Main Event from 12.30am. Here's what you can expect...

Form guide

New York shocked the NFL in Week One by stomping the Detroit Lions 48-17, with rookie quarterback Sam Darnold tossing two touchdowns and completing over 75 per cent of his passes. They crashed back down to earth in a home defeat to their AFC East rival Miami Dolphins. They do, however, have a top-five defense through two weeks.

The curse of the Cleveland Browns

We take a closer look at the curse of the Cleveland Browns as their winless NFL streak continues...

For two straight weeks Cleveland have blown the chance to win and finally end a losing streak that dates back to December, 2016. In Week One, it was a blocked field goal in overtime. Last Sunday, it was two missed extra points and a game-tying field goal attempt that sailed right. Kicker Zane Gonzalez was promptly shipped out of town. Also this week, the Browns finally gave up on troubled receiver Josh Gordon, trading him to the New England Patriots.

Stat Attack

The Jets have won their last five games against Cleveland.

Darnold, who in Week One became the youngest QB to start a season-opening game in the Super Bowl era, became the youngest player in NFL history (21 years and 103 days old) to pass for 300 yards in a game during his outing against the Dolphins.
