Five reasons the Cleveland Browns can bounce back from a horrendous opening week with a win over the New York Jets on Monday Night Football.

The Cleveland Browns head into a critical Week 2 battle against a team that may be feeling the desperation just as much in the New York Jets.

The Jets blew a 16-point lead in Week 1to the Buffalo Bills, while the Browns were lucky to hang with the Titans for three quarters.

Hard to call the second contest of the season a “Must-Win Game,” but both teams get into tough parts of their schedules following this matchup. The outcome here could be the game that helps steer things in the right direction, or torpedoes the rest of the season.

The Jets follow up the Browns with the Patriots, Eagles, Cowboys and the Patriots again, while the Browns get the Rams, Ravens, 49ers, Seahawks and Patriots.

I think the Browns fans are too good to start off 0-3 or 0-4, but nobody wants to find out, so that means climbing back to .500 with a win against New York.

This contest will drum up plenty of memories on the ESPN broadcast, as the Jets and Browns were the first two teams to debut on the show back in 1970.

The image of Joe Namath hanging his head is a portrait of “The Agony of Defeat.”

Well, which ever teams loses this one should be hanging their heads, because their season will be viewed by their fanbases as spiraling out of control.

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