Final: Browns 28, Jets 31
CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cleveland Browns were leading the New York Jets 20-7 at halftime on Sunday afternoon at First Energy Stadium in Cleveland.
Browns quarterback Josh McCown got the start against the Jets on Sunday, then found Andrew Hawkins for a 5-yard touchdown in the first quarter to give Cleveland a 7-0 lead.
Later, the team extended their lead off of a 41-yard field goal from Cody Parkey, to 10-0, before the Jets answered back with a touchdown in the second quarter, shortening the Browns’ lead to 10-7.
Isaiah Crowell’s touchdown lengthened the Browns lead to 17-7 in the second quarter, before Cody Parkey hit another field goal from 27 yards, to make it 20-7.

Last Sunday, they fell to the Bengals, 17-31.
