Winners, losers from Browns’ win over Bengals on Thursday Night Football

  Winners, losers from Browns’ win over Bengals on Thursday Night Football The Browns outlasted the Bengals in the battle of the Buckeye state.After having one of the worst quarterback performances in Week 1, Baker Mayfield responded with a gem in Week 2. Facing a much easier opponent, Cleveland’s offense rolled early on Thursday with big plays from Nick Chubb, Odell Beckham Jr. and Mayfield. By halftime, the Browns jumped out to a 21-13 lead.

Out are TE David Njoku with a knee injury and K Austin Seibert, who was waived. In is K Cody Parkey, just in time to take over for Week 2. With the league's shift to unlimited injured reserve-to-return candidates and its shortening of the timeline to return from eight weeks to three, Njoku could be back

Browns tight end David Njoku will miss at least three weeks with the knee injury he suffered on Sunday against the Ravens. Njoku has been placed on injured reserve, which under the special rules for 2020 means he has to miss at least three weeks.

Njoku reeled in three catches for 50 yards before exiting Sunday’s loss to the Ravens. His one-yard touchdown catch represented Cleveland's only score in the 38-6 drumming. The Browns will now lean even more on No. 1 TE Austin Hooper, with support from fourth-round rookie Harrison Bryant and Stephen Carlson.

The Browns placed tight end David Njoku , noted for his "Chief Slam'' end zone celebration, on injured reserve with his broken wrist, where he’ll miss a Christian Kirksey could be next to go on IR with his chest injury, which could also require surgery.

Odell Beckham Jr. returned to MetLife Stadium Monday night and helped the Cleveland Browns blowout the New York Jets with 161 receiving yards on six receptions and a touchdown. He also spent a key play on the sideline during the first half due to an illegal visor on his helmet.

Njoku missed more than half of the 2019 season with a broken wrist. Now, he’s out for at least the next few games against the Bengals, Washington Football Team and Cowboys. He’ll be eligible to return on Oct. 11 when the Browns face the Colts in Cleveland.

The 24-year-old requested a trade in July, only to rescind it in early August. With a backseat to Hooper, Njoku is under contract through 2021, with manageable salaries of $1.76M this season and $6M next year. When he returns, he’ll look to get back to the form he exhibited in 2018 when he tallied 56 grabs for 639 yards and four scores.

  • a man holding a bat: Just a few days before the Jets’ Week 1 loss to the Bills, Adam Gase preached change was coming to the Jets offense. He said last year’s squad – which went 7-9 and finished 31st in points and 32nd in yards – “was absolutely atrocious” and he planned to “throw all that out. Well, that appears to have been a lie. The Jets offense somehow looked worse than last season in their 27-17 loss to the Bills Sunday. New York opened with three consecutive three-and-out possessions, no one could generate yards, and the two touchdowns came on a screen pass and in garbage time. It was about as bad of a start offensively as we could have had. We did not play well. We did not do a good job as an offense. There’s so much for us to clean up, Adam Gase told reporters. The 2020 season is very young, but it looks like the pattern that began in Gase’s first year in New York spilled into his second season. At some point, Joe Douglas will need to decide if he’s willing to let Gase continue running an offense that has already been proven to fail
