Baker Mayfield helps Browns end long losing streak

  • Baker Mayfield Cleveland Browns New York Jets

He then rallied the Browns back from a two-touchdown deficit to a 21-17 comeback win over the Jets - snapping Cleveland's 19-game winless streak.

Rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield rallied the Cleveland Browns from a 14-point deficit to win 21-17 over the New York Jets, snapping a 19-game winless drought dating back nearly two years. The process was accelerated when starting QB Tyrod Taylor left the Thursday Night Football game with the New York Jets. Taylor had a miserable game before his exit, completing only 4 of 14 passes for 19 yards while being sacked four times.

Mayfield finished the game 17-of-23 for 201 yards.

Mayfield was drafted to lead the Browns to the promised land and after tonight's performance, there won't be any questions as to who will start at quarterback moving forward. Cleveland, behind the arm of Mayfield, put on a second half to remember. The No. 1 overall pick hit Jarvis Landry over the middle for a first down. The Browns really sparked when rookie cornerback Denzel Ward caused a fumble to give the offense good field position to start the second-half scoring with a field goal.

Using their data, we can reveal the estimated values of every player in the current City squad, and it is an incredible list. Depay bears no ill feeling towards United and admits he still feels the old rivalry.

This was the scene when a 40-yard field goal split the uprights in warmups. On the two-point conversion attempt, the Browns went full Philly Special (or is that Baker's Special?) - with Landry connecting to Mayfield in the end zone after a reverse handoff to tie the game, 14-14.

The Jets will likely focus on their ground game and if rookie quarterback Sam Darnold does pass in this Week 3 matchup, it'll be to premier players like Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson.

"I have always told myself that I am different", Mayfield said. "I believe this was his coming out party".
