Enter Siemian: Jets backup QB ready to step in vs. Browns

As the NFL celebrates its 100th season, it rolls out a nod to the Browns-Jets showdown that was the genesis of football's appointment television during the week.

Sam Darnold #14 of the New York Jets reacts in the fourth quarter of their game against the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium on November 4, 2018 in Miami, Florida. The outspoken wideout was far from the only reason Cleveland won, but he was probably the biggest reason with 161 receiving yards, an 89-yard score and a one-handed grab that gave the Browns momentum right out of the gate.

The over is 6-2 in Jets last 8 home games.

Here's five reasons the Browns bounce back with a win against the Jets on MNF.

NY lost quarterback Trevor Siemian to an ankle injury in the second quarter, and Luke Falk - promoted from the practice squad earlier in the day - played the rest of the game.

Injuries are piling up fast for the NFL's New York Jets and Cleveland Browns.

Most believe the Browns will win tonight and should do so convincingly. NY also falls into a 100% ideal 12-0 ATS (since 1995) that backs certain National Football League teams playing in the second of consecutive home games. In this contest, the Jets will be short-handed as some of their key players will be out due to injury.

Symptoms tend to come on suddenly and include chills, fever, malaise, arthralgia, and myalgia. In a typical year, there are just five to 10 cases in the entire US.

The Jets will need to sign a backup for Siemian or elevate Luke Falk from the practice squad. It also comes on the same day that star defenders Quinnen Williams and C.J. Mosley have been ruled out for Monday night's game against Cleveland. Will he play on Monday night?

Siemian was knocked out of the game after throwing a long incomplete pass to Ryan Griffin and Cleveland's Myles Garrett slammed into him, and fell on top of him. Kelvin Beachum (ankle), Brian Winters (shoulder), Braxton Berrios (hamstring), Steve McLendon (hip) and Alex Lewis (undisclosed) are all questionable as well.

Asked about the offensive line communication, Gase said, "They are veteran players that know what to do that are really good".
