Drop Everything… The Cleveland Browns WON a Game
Something happened last night that hasn't happened in 635 days. The Cleveland Browns actually won a game. Yeah, the Browns played and the other team lost.
It didn't catch everyone by surprise. Vegas had them as three-point favorites against the New York Jets, and that was the first time in three seasons the Browns were favored to win a home game.
But they needed help, from back-up rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield.
The Jets were up 14-0 just before halftime, when Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor left the game with a head injury. Taylor had been horrendous, and Browns fans were chanting for Mayfield to make his big debut.
Baker entered with 1:45 left in the half, and this breathed life into the offense. The Browns went down the field and got a field goal, and when they came back out in the second half, Mayfield proved it wasn't a fluke.
Mayfield finished the game completing 17-of-23 passes for 201 yards. He didn't have a touchdown pass, but pretty much all of his throws were right on the money.
Next up... The Browns winning TWO games on the season for the first time in a long time!
