NEW YORK-- The Cleveland Browns beat a beat-up New York Jets squad in Monday Night Football at the Meadowlands, 23-3.
New York Jets quarterback Trevor Siemian, who was starting as Sam Darnold recovers from mono, was knocked to the ground by Myles Garrett in the second quarter.
Siemian injured his left ankle and did not return, bringing in Luke Faulk, who was promoted from the practice squad before the game. Garrett was penalized for roughing the passer.
Odell Beckham Jr. got the offense started with a 30-yard, one-handed catch to set up a field goal and put Cleveland on the board first. He logged his first touchdown as a Brown in the third quarter when Baker Mayfield found him for 89 yards.
A 19-yard carry from Nick Chubb added to the Browns offense.
Garrett recorded three sacks and T.J. Carrie recovered a fumble.
It was Freddie Kitchens first win as a head coach and the Browns first win in Monday Night Football since 2008.
