On Cleveland’s first drive of the game, quarterback Josh McCown scrambled toward the end zone and was hit by Jets linebacker Demario Davis sending him flying just before crossing the goal line. The collision forced McCown to fumble and spin into the end zone crashing down hard.
The Jets recovered the ball, and Josh McCown was taken to the locker room for evaluation. He was ruled out for the rest of the game with a concussion.
Johnny Manziel took over on the Browns next possession in the second quarter and led the Browns on a touchdown drive, throwing a 54-yard touchdown pass to Travis Benjamin. The touchdown was Manziel's first NFL touchdown pass, and his longest career completion. The score put the Browns up 7-0 over the Jets.
