It's officially Baker Mayfield time in Cleveland! 


In his second career start, Mayfield engineered a potential game-winning drive at the end of regulation and then an actual game-winning drive in overtime. 


He was impressive for most of the game against the Ravens (one of the NFL's best defenses), and already has two wins under his belt. But perhaps the most impressive thing he's done so far came in the middle of the game last Sunday against the Raiders.

Of course, he meant to say took, but...

Mayfield's stats haven't been overwhelming through three games. He's completing 58.9 percent of his passes and has thrown for 838 yards and three touchdowns while also throwing three interceptions and fumbling twice. 


If we've learned anything over the past few years, it's very difficult to win games for the Browns and that's just what he's been able to do. That's just another notch on Mayfield's belt as he appears to be a genius choice by the Browns first overall. He's playing like a veteran and a leader despite being a rookie, and if he continues to win games, the sky is the limit.
