The Cleveland Browns are attempting to win their first game in over 600 days tonight as the team takes on the New York Jets. Will the Bud Light cases open tonight and rain free beer over those in Cleveland?

We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, ahead of kickoff one member of the Browns will be coming straight to the stadium from the hospital.

Browns running back Carlos Hyde is currently at the hospital awaiting the birth of his child. According to Omar Ruiz of NFL Network, Hyde's son is expected to be born any minute now.

Here's the report.

Today just so happens to be Hyde's birthday as well. This is setting up to be one crazy day for the former Ohio State star. Cleveland and New York are set for an 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff time and the game will be broadcast on the NFL Network. Can Cleveland win its first game of the season? UPDATE: Carlos Hyde has arrived at the game.

However, baby Hyde has yet to arrive. We'll update this post when more becomes known.
