Browns' Decision To Go For A Win Instead Of A Tie Backfires; Jets, With Just Enough Time, Win In OT

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) – Mark Sanchez hit Santonio Holmes for a 37- yard touchdown with 16 seconds left in overtime to lift the New York Jets over Cleveland, 26-20.

The contest appeared to be headed for the first tie in the NFL since the Philadelphia Eagles and Cincinnati Bengals ended in a 13-all deadlock nearly two years ago, but the Jets received the football on the Browns’ 37 after a modest punt return by Jim Leonhard.

On the first play of the series, Sanchez dropped back and found Holmes, who broke free over the middle and raced the remainder of the way down the left sideline for the deciding score.

Sanchez finished 27-of-44 for 299 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for the Jets (7-2), who played back-to-back overtime games for the first time since 2003 and avoided their first tie since 1988.

Holmes ended with 76 yards on five catches and Shonn Greene posted 72 yards on 20 carries for New York, which posted a 23-20 overtime win at Detroit last week.

Colt McCoy wound up throwing for 205 yards and a score on 18-of-31 passing for the Browns (3-6), who haven’t won an OT contest since a 33-30 decision at Baltimore on November 18, 2006.

Peyton Hillis added 82 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries for Cleveland, which had won two in a row including a 34-14 drubbing of New England last Sunday.

On the Browns’ first drive of overtime, Chansi Stuckey had the ball ripped away in Jets territory and New York set up on its own 36. Nick Folk then missed a 47-yard attempt wide right with 4:51 left in OT, his third miss of the contest in five attempts.

Cleveland failed to move the ball past midfield, and after a punt, the Jets started from their own nine with 3:06 to go. New York faced a 3rd-and-14 from its own 46 with 1:46 left and Sanchez threw deep for Braylon Edwards, but Joe Haden came down with the ball at the Browns’ three.

The Browns didn’t move the ball on that series, and it proved costly when the Jets won the game on their next offensive play.

Phil Dawson hit a 34-yard field goal to complete Cleveland’s first drive of the contest. His onside kick went out of bounds untouched just after the 10- yard limit, and the Jets took over on the Browns’ 42. Folk capped the drive with a 27-yard field goal.

Hillis fumbled at his own 31 on the Browns’ next drive and New York took over there, but the Jets stalled and Folk’s 48-yard attempt sailed wide right.

The Browns responded with a 61-yard drive ending with Hillis’ 12-yard TD run for a 10-3 game, but the Jets struck back to tie on a 25-yard connection between Sanchez and Jerricho Cotchery inside the four minutes of the second quarter.

Helped by a 37-yard catch-and-run by Josh Cribbs to the Jets’ five, Cleveland took a 13-10 lead on the following drive when Dawson booted a 23-yarder.

New York then moved ahead 17-13 with 23 seconds left in the half when Sanchez capped an 11-play, 80-yard drive with a one-yard plunge.

The Jets took the second-half kick and worked 19 plays over 10-plus minutes, but failed to add to their lead when Nick Folk clanked a 24-yarder off the right upright.

The Browns failed to convert on their two possessions in the quarter.

Folk managed to redeem himself with a 25-yard make to put the Jets ahead by a 20-13 count with 2:42 remaining, ending a 56-yard, 13-play march, but the Browns had a comeback in store.

McCoy found Mohamed Massaquoi for a three-yard scoring strike with 44 seconds to go, and Dawson’s extra point forged a 20-20 deadlock.

New York racked up 456 yards of total offense to 303 for Cleveland…Cotchery finished with 43 yards on three catches…Cleveland had won four of the last five meetings coming in and despite the loss, has taken 12 of the 20 total matchups since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger…The Jets split those 2003 OT games, losing at home to the Giants (November 2) and winning in Oakland (November 9).

Jets Control The Third Quarter Clock But Do Not Score As Halftime Tally Still Stands

New York took the second-half kickoff and went on a ten-minute drive which ended in a missed Nick Folk chip shot field goal. Needing to give the D a breather, the Browns offense then held the ball for all of one minute before having to punt back to the Jets.

A fine defensive stand followed, and a sack of Mark Sanchez by Mike Adams forced a Jet’s punt with less than two minutes to go in the quarter. As the quarter ended the Browns had the ball at their own 28, facing a third-and-long, with the score remaining what it was at the half — New York 17-Cleveland 13.

Late Jets TD Gives New York Halftime Lead

A Mark Sanchez one-yard run late in the first half as the visiting New York Jets ahead of the Browns 17-13 heading into the locker rooms for halftime.

After an exchange of field goals to open the scoring, Peyton Hillis scored from 12 yards out to put the Browns up 10-3 at the end of the first quarter. The Jets tied the game in the second on a Sanchez TD pass to Jerricho Cotchery. After another Dawson field goal put the Browns back on top, Sanchez scored on the keeper to give the Jets the advantage.

For the Browns, Hillis has 60 yards on ten carries, while Colt McCoy is again playing error-free football. McCoy is 8-12 at the intermission for 112 yards with no picks. New York leads 12-11 in first downs, and the Browns have the edge in yardage, 196-163.

Break It Down: Browns Will Need Big Plays To Beat Jets

 

 "Brother...can you spare a third-down conversion?"

In a game ripe with matchups between ex-employees, it may be the clash of New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan and Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Rob Ryan that generates the most on-field fun when their teams meet this Sunday at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

The twin brothers will face off for the first time since Rex took over the Jets in his own inimitable style in 2009, mixing press-room hyperbole with playtime chaos en route to a berth in the AFC Championship Game. Meanwhile, the lesser-known Rob is climbing the hot list of prospective coaches and could face his brother in a head coach vs. head coach showdown by this time next year.

The Jets' boss said he is ready to unleash some trash talk.

"I'm sure we'll talk about each other's children, wives, whatever," Rex Ryan said. "It's going to get ugly."

The players, meanwhile, will feel the wrath of the rivalry on the field.

"If he's half of what Rex is, it's going to be a major pain for 60 minutes," Jets center Nick Mangold said of Cleveland's Ryan.

Oh, and the man Rex replaced in New York -- Eric Mangini -- has landed as the "other" Ryan's boss with the Browns. The remaining Jets from the Mangini era have acknowledged the impending matchup during game week run-up, but hardly showered their former boss with praise for his work during a 23-25 tenure from 2006-08 that included one playoff appearance.

"There's no hatred with us as the New York Jets organization (from) when Mangini was here," said cornerback Darrelle Revis, a 2007 draft pick who played two years under him in New York. "Smart guy. He did all he could. Now he's in a different place. I'm sure he's looking forward to this game."

The Jets head to the weekend in first place in the AFC East Division, leading the also 6-2 New England Patriots by virtue of an early-season head-to-head win. New York is coming off a 23-20 come-from-behind overtime victory at Detroit this past Sunday.

Cleveland, meanwhile, is 3-5 and third in the AFC North, three games in back of the front-running tandem of Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

"It's going to be special," Mangini said in reference to meeting the Jets seven days after facing another former team in the Patriots, for whom he'd once been an assistant under Bill Belichick. "And last week was special, too."

Cleveland defeated New England by a 34-14 count last week, the team's second consecutive impressive win. Prior to a Week 8 bye, the Browns handed defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans a 30-17 loss in the Superdome on Oct. 24.

Mangini said he's more at ease in all facets of the job in Ohio, particularly facing a media horde less venomous than the one in the Big Apple.

"It's less scripted for me (in Cleveland)," he said. "I know what I want to say. I know the points I want to get across. Not reading it as much as just feeling it and getting the same point across, but from the heart. I think the best thing that I've learned is to take the best things from the people that I've been with who are outstanding, but do it in my way. It's more effective, more authentic."

SERIES HISTORY

The Browns hold an 12-7 advantage in their all-time series with the Jets and have won the last two matchups, the most recent being a 24-18 decision in the Meadowlands in 2007. New York also dropped a 20-13 result in its last visit to Cleveland, which took place in 2006, and last bested the Browns with a 10-7 triumph in Ohio back in 2004.

In addition to the regular-season series, the teams played a memorable postseason game, with Cleveland scoring a 23-20 overtime win at home in a 1986 AFC Divisional Playoff.

Mangini has never previously faced his former employers as a head coach and will be opposing his successor in New York for the first time as well. This will also be Rex Ryan's first meeting with the Browns as a head man.

WHEN THE JETS HAVE THE BALL

It hasn't been as pretty lately, but Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is nonetheless 4-0 on the road this season and completed 56.2 percent (68-of-121) of his passes for 951 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions with a 90.6 passer rating. The team is 5-0 when he throws at least one touchdown pass, and the 336 yards he amassed against the Lions last week were a career best. Things have gone better when Sanchez has turned and handed the ball to others, however, as the Jets have a rushing offense that's fourth in the league with an average of 148 yards per week. In five career games against Cleveland, running back LaDainian Tomlinson has averaged 129.8 yards per game and scored eight touchdowns. Meanwhile, backfield mate Shonn Greene is just 69 yards short of 1,000 for his career. Wideout Braylon Edwards continues the homecoming theme, returning to Cleveland for the first time since being traded by the Browns to New York last season. The third overall selection by the Browns in the 2005 draft, he had a 74-yard touchdown catch against Detroit. Fellow receiver Santonio Holmes recorded his first 100-yard game as a Jet last week, while kick returner Brad Smith is first in the AFC and second in the league with a 30.7-yard average per return.

Among the Cleveland defenders, cornerback Eric Wright had his first interception of the season and tackle Ahtyba Rubin chipped in with his first career sack in last week's victory over the Patriots. Several of their teammates have a New York pedigree, as linebackers Eric Barton (2004-08) and David Bowens (2007-08), end Kenyon Coleman (2007-08) and safety Abram Elam (2007-08) all once played with the Jets. On the numbers, Cleveland has been touched for 105.9 yards per week on the ground and 240.5 per game through the air for a generous 346.4 yards per game total. Additionally, the team has produced 14 sacks and nine interceptions, while foes have gained ground at a 5.5 yards per play clip. Free safety T.J. Ward has a team-best 60 tackles, while linebacker Marcus Benard's 4 1/2 sacks and cornerback Sheldon Brown's and Bowens' two interceptions each also are tops among Browns players.

WHEN THE BROWNS HAVE THE BALL

As much as the Jets have succeeded on the road, the Browns are beginning to mirror it at home, having won five of their last seven along Lake Erie. After downing the Saints and Patriots in succession, Cleveland seeks a third straight game with 30-plus points. The offensive resurgence has been largely triggered by rookie quarterback Colt McCoy, who's 2-1 as a starter and posted a career-best 101.6 passer rating last week. He scored his first rushing touchdown against New England as well, but spent much of the rest of the time handing off to burly runner Peyton Hillis, who rumbled for his third 100-yard game of the season with a career-high 184 yards. Hillis also tied a career- high with two touchdowns and is tied for third in the league with seven scores this year. On the outside, wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi has averaged 17 yards per catch over 47 career receptions and ex-Jet Chansi Stuckey -- a seventh-round pick of New York in 2008 -- had his first career rushing touchdown last week. Also, tight end Ben Watson is averaging 16.3 yards per catch over his last three games.

Individually, chalk Jets defensive end Trevor Pryce as one who'll relish Sunday's matchup, as he's posted 7 1/2 sacks in eight career games against the Browns while then with the Ravens. Statistically speaking, the Jets are allowing 307.1 yards per game, including just 87.4 on the ground and a 3.3- yard average per rush attempt, and 219.8 via the pass while recording 17 sacks and five interceptions. Linebacker David Harris leads New York with 57 tackles, while end Shaun Ellis has a team-best 3 1/2 sacks and cornerback Antonio Cromartie a Gang Green-leading two interceptions.

OVERALL ANALYSIS

The Browns have gone into two straight games as heavy underdogs and made so- called experts look foolish. In spite of that resurgence and a home-field advantage, it's difficult to make a case going in that they should beat a team generally considered among the conference's -- if not the league's -- elite.  Of course, the way the Jets have played the last month - 8 turnovers in 3 games - they are anything but elite.  I was in the building last weekend when the Browns dominated the Patriots - the place was rocking.  Look for the Browns to ride that wave and shock the world again!

Browns LB Marcus Benard Stable And Alert

The AP is reporting that Cleveland Browns linebacker Marcus Benard collapsed in the locker room earlier today during the media interview period.

According to the report, Benard was sitting in a chair when he suddenly collapsed to the floor.  After initially believing Benard was kidding around, teammates, including fellow linerbacker Matt Roth called for team training staff.

No word on Benard's condition has been released by the Browns, though his eyes were reportedly open while being attended to.

Benard leads the Browns with 4 1/2 sacks this season.

UPDATE - Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis said Benard was stable and alert and was taken to a local hospital for further testing. Gulkis would not name the hospital.

NFL Week 10 - What To Watch For

WHAT TO LOOK FOR - WEEK 10

WORKING OVERTIMEIn a season filled with close finishes, 11 games have been decided in overtime in 2010.  Of those 11, both teams had at least one possession in 10 of those contents (90.9 percent).  If that percentage holds, it would be the highest of any season since 1994, when the NFL moved the kickoff spot back five yards from the 35- to the 30-yard line.

Since 1994, the highest percentage of overtime games in a season in which both teams had at least one possession is 71.4, which occurred twice (1995, 15 of 21; 1996, 10 of 14).

SECOND-HALF SURGESSince 2000, 27 teams have reached the halfway point of the season with a .500 or below winning percentage and made the playoffs, including at least one in every season. 

In each of the past four seasons, at least three teams started 4-4 or worse and rebounded to make the playoffs, the longest such streak in NFL history.

The teams since 2006 that started the season at .500 or below through eight games and earned a playoff berth:

GIVE ME FIVE:  Tennessee running back CHRIS JOHNSON, who has 3,955 rushing yards on 787 attempts (5.0 average) in his NFL career, will play in his 40th game on Sunday when the Titans visit Miami.

If Johnson rushes for at least 45 yards against the Dolphins while maintaining his 5.0 yards-per-carry career average, he would become the fourth player in NFL history to rush for 4,000 yards and average 5.0 yards per carry or better in his first 40 games.

SUH-PENDOUSDetroit Lions rookie defensive tackle NDAMUKONG SUH, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, has 6.5 sacks, tops among rookies and the most by any defensive tackle this season.

Through eight games, Suh is on pace for 13 sacks, which would surpass DANA STUBBLEFIELD's record for sacks by a rookie defensive tackle (10.5 in 1993) since the sack became an official statistic in 1982.  Suh is also within striking distance of the rookie sack record, regardless of position.  JEVON KEARSE (14.5 sacks in 1999) is the current record holder.
