Week 17 brings us the last Thursday Night Football matchup of the season as the Cleveland Browns host the New York Jets. While the Jets are just playing for pride at this point in the year, the Browns will officially clinch a playoff spot with a win.

Kickoff is at 5:15 p.m. PT and the game will air on Amazon Prime. For my gambling folks, DraftKings Sportsbook offers lines and prop bets for tonight’s action as the spread, total and moneylines are listed below.

  • Spread: CLE -7.5
  • O/U: 34
  • CLE ML: -345
  • NYJ ML: +275

For the injury report, the Jets have several players out; offensive tackle Duane Brown (back), quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles), tight end Jeremy Ruckert (concussion) and quarterback Zach Wilson (concussion). Also, running back Israel Abanikanda (ankle), kicker Greg Zuerlein (right quadriceps) and wide receiver Allen Lazard (illness) are questionable.

Meanwhile, the Browns will be without kicker Dustin Hopkins (left hamstring), linebacker Anthony Walker (knee) and defensive end Ogbo Okoronkwo (pectoral). Punter Corey Bojorquez (left quad) is doubtful while wide receiver and former Raider Amari Cooper (heel), wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (knee) and free safety Juan Thornhill (calf) are questionable.

According to The Weather Channel, the forecast calls for 45 degrees and a 10 percent chance of rain in Cleveland tonight.
