Baker Mayfield: 'this crowd deserved to see that first win at home'

Baker Mayfield: 'this crowd deserved to see that first win at home'

Baker Mayfield made his National Football League debut midway through Thursday night's game against the New York Jets and led the Cleveland Browns to their first victory since 2016.

"We're not looking for breaks", Jackson said.

The Browns trailed 14-0 when Mayfield replaced an injured Tyrod Taylor late in the second quarter.

Many suspect that Jackson's words are more of a professional courtesy for Taylor, who had suffered a concussion.




"It is impressive what he did last night; there's no way around that", Jackson said. Before Thursday night, the Browns long expressed a desire to sit Mayfield, the former Oklahoma star and Heisman Trophy victor, behind Taylor this fall. When asked how he was able to perform at a high level - completing 17 of 23 passes - he said the daunting circumstances were nothing new. I think that this is the best team that I have had since I have been here.

"You guys could feel the energy of the crowd and how badly they wanted it, as well".

"At the end of the day, every player in our locker room knows that everything we do is about winning". Most notably, Mayfield linked up with Jarvis Landry on an incredible pitch-and-catch.

"We saw Philadelphia run it in the Super Bowl and they said, 'Hey, we can do that.' The amusing thing is that Tyrod has taken every rep on it so Baker has not ran it at all".
