Not the best game in Week 1 of the NFL season but I see enough value here where I will make it my first pick of the season. I like the Jets at home giving a field goal. Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the start at quarterback and I think he is slightly better than Geno Smith. Fitzpatrick has been inconsistent in his career but he has been successful early in his stints with the teams he has played on. I really like the Jets defense with a solid front seven, and the return of Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie at cornerback.
I think the Browns will struggle early this season with Josh McCown under center. They have very little talent in their backfield and at receiver. I see this being a low-scoring game early and then the Jets will pull away in the second half while playing tight defense.
Pick: Jets (-3) over Browns
