McCown won only one game as a starter in two seasons with Cleveland, and that came in Baltimore. He went 0-7 at home for the Browns (0-5), who released him on Feb. 7 in a cost-cutting move. The 38-year-old wasn’t looking for payback, but he got it with two second-half scoring tosses.
Little was expected this season of the Jets (3-2), but they’ve become a shocking success story.
“We haven’t done anything,” coach Todd Bowles said. “We’ve won three games. By no means are we perfect. We’ve got to play a lot better to beat New England (next week) or anyone else.”
Kizer was understandably upset following the game.
“Frustrated for sure,” said the second-round pick, who has nine interceptions and a league-low 49.5 rating. “This is all new to me. Being 0-5 is new to me. This organization and this city deserves wins.”
Kizer stood on the sideline next to Jackson wearing a baseball cap and blank expression as Hogan completed five straight passes, including his scoring pass to Njoku, who snared the pass with a diving, one-handed grab.
Jackson said he’ll wait to watch the tape before making a decision on his quarterback for next week when the Browns visit Houston.
