Insult to injury: Jets’ Isaiah Crowell scores against his former team

The first touchdown of Thursday’s game was scored by the New York Jets. But the Cleveland Browns are quite familiar with the man who scored, Isaiah Crowell.

On the first play of the second quarter, Crowell, the former Brown, took a handoff from Sam Darnold and cruised in for a seven-yard touchdown run.

The score gave a little jolt to a game that really needed one. The first six possessions of the game each ended in a punt.

Crowell’s touchdown was set up by a partially blocked punt from┬áKevin Pierre-Louis, which set the Jets up deep in Cleveland territory.
