Joe Flacco will start at QB for the Jets vs. the Browns

·1 min read

When the New York Jets roll into FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday, a familiar face will be leading them into Cleveland’s home opener.

Jets coach Robert Saleh indicated that veteran Joe Flacco will be the starting quarterback for Week 2, per Rich Cimini of ESPN. Flacco will start in place of injured Zach Wilson.

There was some thought the Jets would switch to Mike White after Flacco had a poor outing in the Jets’ punchless 24-9 loss to the Ravens in Week 1. the 37-year-old threw the ball 59 times, completing 37 for just 307 yards. He was sacked three times and threw an interception as well as a touchdown.

But it’ll be Flacco, the longtime Ravens starter, trying to take flight against Joe Woods’ defense. The Browns have not had much success against Flacco, who owns a 17-3 record vs. Cleveland as a starter. None of those have come since he left the Ravens following the 2018 season, however.
