The Browns will focus on stopping the run first with their front seven and mix their coverages to try and confuse Jets rookie QB Geno Smith into mistakes downfield. Offensively, the Browns can't rely on consistent production from the ground game, leaving QB Jason Campbell in long passing situations. While he does push the field vertically to WR Josh Gordon, Campbell still is quick to check down.
MATCHUPS TO WATCH:
--Browns FS Tashaun Gipson vs. Jets QB Geno Smith -- Smith has thrown 21 interceptions, second in the NFL only to the 25 thrown by Eli Manning. Gipson has the best hands in the secondary. He intercepted two passes last week and returned one for a touchdown.
--Browns RT Mitchell Schwartz vs. Jets LDE Muhammad Wilkerson -- Wilkerson leads the Jets with 10 sacks. Schwartz is under a microscope because the front office isn't enamored with him. This game is his chance to show he should be part of the plan for 2014.
