FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets’ social media department posted a graphic on Twitter on Friday of a sad-looking dog that resembles the Cleveland Browns’ logo wearing a cone around its neck — along with a Jets collar tag.

It also showed four dog biscuits — two of them broken — on the ground. The tweet included the word, “Sit” followed by #NYJvsCLE.

It was deleted about an hour after being posted.

The message didn’t exactly fit what coach Todd Bowles and his players have been saying all week — the 2-2 squad is “not good enough to look past anybody.”

The tweet received over 300 retweets and 600 likes before it was taken down.
