Nick Chubb's third rushing touchdown of the day put the Cleveland Browns up 30-17 against the New York Jets with just under two minutes to go in the fourth quarter. A 2-0 record was in their sights, but it wasn't meant to be. The Jets mounted a furious comeback and snuck out of Cleveland with a win.

Quarterback Joe Flacco hit Corey Davis for a 66-yard TD to make it a one score game. The Jets had to recover the ensuing onside kick to even have a chance and that is exactly what they did. Another TD sealed the win and sent the Browns' Super Bowl 57 odds plummeting on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Cleveland Browns Super Bowl Odds

Cleveland entered Week 2 with odds set at +3400 to capture its first Lombardi Trophy in franchise history. Those odds now check in at +5500, which ranks below 19 other NFL squads. The Browns were jumped by the New England Patriots, Tennessee Titans and Arizona Cardinals after their loss.

Losing a game like that in front of a home crowd is tough, but it's even tougher when considering the rest of the schedule. It was a winnable contest and Cleveland doesn't have a ton of those coming up. The Browns entered the 2022 season with the 14th-hardest strength of schedule in the league.

The Browns have an opportunity to reclaim momentum or dive deeper into the abyss in a Week 3 Thursday Night Football matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Cleveland is slated as a 4.5-point favorite with odds set at -200 on the moneyline, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
