Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns played an incredibly exciting game against the division rival Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7. With a lead that was bouncing back and forth, Mayfield and the Browns ultimately pulled off a last-second win.

Mayfield himself ended up having a great game after getting off to a fairly slow start. After failing to complete a pass in his first five attempts, Mayfield only threw one more incomplete pass the rest of the day and finished 22/28 with 297 yards passing and 5 touchdowns.

When he was asked about how he got into that rhythm after the slow start, he channeled the words of none other than rapper DMX.

Some younger NFL fans might not immediately recognize this reference, but it's surely an interesting response from Baker. After all, he has been known to provide those during interviews from time to time.

Baker and the Browns have a Week 8 matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders where they will again look to "shut 'em down open up shop."
