Baker Mania in Cleveland.
For the first time in 635 days, the Cleveland Browns can call themselves winners. The Browns kicked off the NFL's Week 3 action last night with a come from behind win at home against the New York Jets, marking the team's first victory since December 24, 2016.
The Browns fell behind 14-0 in the first half but when QB Tyrod Taylor exited the game with a concussion, the Baker Mayfield era finally began and it completely changed the energy at the stadium. Mayfield, the former Heisman trophy winner and #1 overall pick in the 2018 Draft, led the Browns down the field for a field goal on his first drive of the game and then added another in the third quarter.
He later guided the Browns on scoring drives of 69 and 75 yards in the final two quarters, capped off by Carlos Hyde's 1-yard touchdown run just before the two-minute warning.
In describing his approach, Mayfield said (H/T ESPN), "Don't overthink it. Live in the moment. It is that time. I have to command the offense. I have to command the team. I have to bring a spark and give us a chance to win."
"Cleveland deserves a win, but we're not done yet," Mayfield said, then turning his words to the Browns fans. "So don't break the dilly dilly coolers too hard; just enjoy it. We deserve it, but at the same time we're just getting started."
