The Cleveland Browns and New York Jets have put together an ugly game so far on Thursday night. Now, NFL fans are used to seeing suspect play on Thursday nights, but these two teams are taking things to a new level.

Baker Mayfield has taken over for an ailing Tyrod Taylor who left Thursday night's contest with a concussion. Mayfield has led the Browns to 14 points so far.

Browns fans in the stands were clamoring for Mayfield in the first half as Taylor went 4-of-14 passing for just 19 yards. They got their wish.

Before the game kicked off, Cleveland fans were up to their usual shenanigans - kind of. One Browns fan went viral after he found a possum hanging out in the stands.

Check it out.

It's not every day you find a live animal in the stands of a stadium. Mascots are one thing, but a random possum showing up at your feet?

Cleveland has rallied from a 14-0 deficit to tie the game.
