On Sunday, the coach's indecision on a fourth-and-1 play inside the NY 5-yard line was arguably the turning point in the game.
The only National Football League team to have not held a lead this season, the Browns have been outscored 21-7 in the first quarter and 63-21 in the second quarter. Kizer was 8 of 17 for 87 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.
"I just let him know that I'm thinking about him, that I loved him and to hang in there", McCown said after leading the New York Jets to a 17-14 win.
KEYS TO THE GAME: The Browns revamped their offensive line in the offseason, with the idea of developing a power running game with Isaiah Crowell being the centerpiece. And that's why I love these guys, we show up in those big moments. This organization and this city deserves wins. I'll take the Jets for the cover and win.
Bryce Harper brings Nats back to life with epic two-run homer
The final verdict was a dominating performance behind Kyle Hendricks , who absolutely shut down the Washington Nationals bats. Setup man Carl Edwards Jr . made easy work of the bottom of the eighth, striking out two and getting Bryce Harper to pop out.
If Jackson keeps his rookie on the bench, he won't go head-to-head next week in Houston with one of the quarterbacks the Browns passed on in this draft in Deshaun Watson - but that's as it should be.
While some of Jackson's decisions - he opted to go on fourth down at New York's 4-yard line instead of kicking a tying field goal in the fourth quarter can be questioned, the move with Kizer seemed sound. Like I said, my teammates have all the faith in the world in me. "I think we were close this past week. We just didn't finish it". "Myles is going out there with an attitude that he wants to play and he wants to play really, really well".
"Obviously, I wish we would've won more games and it had gone better", McCown said after practice Wednesday. "Yes, he's a really good player".
Kizer can still provide the Browns "hope" for the future as Jackson recently said he does.
Patriots Team Grades: Somehow, Some Way…The Defense Defeats The Buccaneers
That's how big of a mess their kicking game has been the last two years, and it's been the difference in several games. This game is more of a can't-loss and a win keeps the Bills at least a game ahead of the Patriots come Week 6.
"Can he help? Yes", said Browns coach Hue Jackson after Thursday's practice.
On their next drive, Cleveland drove all the way down to the Jets four, but Kizer was intercepted by Marcus Maye at the goal line to get NY out of trouble. I'm not quite sure what it was.
If they can get the running game going, it will take a ton of pressure off rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer, who ranks near the bottom of every statistical category.

But sceptics also cautioned against piling up expectations on this one solitary reconciliatory move by the NRA. He's never sold them, and says the NRA is right on target calling for more restrictions.
Here is the good, the bad and the ugly... This game could come down the wire, with either team winning on a late score, so I like taking the points here. However, on the Browns' next possession, Hogan was intercepted, and the Jets scored a pair of unanswered touchdowns to seal the comeback win.
