The Cleveland Browns hope they won’t hear boos Thursday night when they play their division rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers, at home.

But after his performance against the New York Jets, which resulted in a terrible loss in the final seconds of the game, second-year cornerback Greg Newsome II couldn’t blame the fans.

After Sunday’s game, defensive end Myles Garrett said he was disappointed fans booed the team.

“It wasn’t the most optimal ending that we wanted,” he told News 5 Cleveland. “Of course we want to win… We’ve got plenty of time to correct what we’re doing, so we don’t want to see this crowd, this stadium leave us so soon. We want to see them.” completely behind us. And it’s disappointing for everyone, but it’s absolutely disappointing for us as a team.”

Newsome, on the other hand, saw a different side of things.

“I know the fans booed. I would have booed too after a loss like that,” he said.

The Browns lost disastrously. Running back Nick Chubb scored a touchdown that put the Browns up by two with 1 minute, 22 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. All the Browns had to do was play conservative but tight defense, but they couldn’t get the clock to zero.

Instead, Jets wide receiver Corey Davis scored a quick touchdown on a long pass from quarterback Joe Flacco that brought the Jets within six points. Then, on the subsequent onside kick, Justin Hardee, the Jets’ special teams weapon, recovered the ball for a game-winning drive.

Rookie wide receiver Garrett Wilson caught a pass from Flacco in the middle of the field for a touchdown, and the extra point was good to put the Jets up 31-30 with 22 seconds left. Quarterback Jacoby Brissett threw an interception to end any potential game-winning field goal situation.

“Obviously they’re disappointed,” veteran offensive lineman Joel Bitonio said. “I’ve been here nine years and have been booed at least once a year, if not more as a team. They put their hard-earned money to support the team, and they were frustrated and disappointed.” just as we were frustrated and disappointed.”

Linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah even called him “a right move” by fans because he’s “a loving, tough guy kind of guy.”

“My message to the fans is stay with us,” Newsome said. “It was Week 2, we’re 1-1, obviously I feel like we should have been 2-0, but it’s a long season. We’re going to need them, especially down the stretch and especially now. So stick with us, and we’ll make them feel proud at the end of the season.
