Tom Withers Associated Press Published 1:03 AM EDT Sep 21, 2018 Cleveland — For the first time in 635 days, the Cleveland Browns found a way to win. Baker Mayfield showed them how. The No. 1 overall pick replaced injured starter Tyrod Taylor and sparked the Browns, who got two 1-yard touchdown runs from Carlos Hyde and beat the New York Jets 21-17 on Thursday night for their first win since Dec. 24, 2016. And so ends Cleveland’s 19-game winless streak, the NFL’s second-longest since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. The Browns (1-1-1) trailed 14-0 in the first half before Mayfield came in for Taylor and led four scoring drives while winning an unexpected matchup against Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. Cleveland passed on taking Darnold in the draft and instead chose Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy winner from Oklahoma. Mayfield finished 17 of 23 for 201 yards in a little more than a half after coming in after Taylor suffered a concussion. Darnold had one last chance, … [Read more...] about Cleveland Browns beat New York Jets for first win since 2016

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets say they will pay any fines and not penalize players if they violate a new NFL policy to stand or stay in the locker room during "The Star-Spangled Banner." Jets owner Christopher Johnson said Wednesday the team is focused on working with players to advance social justice issues rather than creating club rules or penalties that restrict demonstrations. The ruling approved by NFL owners fines teams for their players kneeling on the field during the national anthem in a move meant to stem widespread debate over protests started by former quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The policy leaves it up to individual teams to decide whether to pass that cost on by punishing players directly. Johnson says he plans to meet with Jets players and coaches to discuss the decision. He says he'll support the players "wherever we land as a team." … [Read more...] about New York Jets to pay fines if players violate anthem policy
NEW YORK (AP) — An arrest warrant was issued for New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson after he failed to appear for a court date in Florida. According to Broward County court records , Anderson was due Tuesday morning for his arraignment stemming from a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving in January. Bond was set at $500 for Anderson. Ed O’Donnell, Anderson’s Florida-based attorney, did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment Wednesday night. According to several published reports, O’Donnell said he was never notified of a court date and planned to try to resolve the issue Thursday. The charge stems from an incident in Sunrise, Florida, on Jan. 19 when Anderson was charged on nine counts. The original felony charge of fleeing and eluding police with lights and sirens active was reduced on April 7 to misdemeanor reckless driving – for which Anderson was due in court Tuesday, according to court records. A felony charge … [Read more...] about Arrest warrant issued for New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson

Last Updated Jan 23, 2010 5:30 PM EST For the insurers who cover the Super Bowl functions - security force, crowd control, concession stands, even the stadium itself - kickoff comes right after the previous Super Bowl ends. But certain things have to be decided at the last minute when they find out which two teams make it, and what their fans are like. And while no one is saying it officially, insurers will probably worry a lot more if the New York Jets beat the Indianapolis Colts and make it to the big game. "Certain teams have reputations for enthusiastic and boisterous followers," says one insurance broker who assists the owners of the stadiums in finding insurance and help to manage these events. From the insurers' perspective, they would probably like it if the crowd was in their '60's, wearing suits and sipping tea. But that is not the case with Jets fans who are the youngest in the NFL and known for their 10-beer tailgate parties before finding those omnipresent concession … [Read more...] about Are Insurers Secretly Rooting Against the New York Jets?
