Baker Mayfield's first National Football League pass

Baker Mayfield's first National Football League pass

And on Thursday night, the Browns beat the New York Jets 21-17 to go 1-1-1 on the season, giving them their first win since December 24, 2016 - a total of 635 days. He completed his first two passes - a 14-yard pass to Jarvis Landry and a 17-yarder to David Njoku - to move the Browns downfield.

Former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield appears to have taken over in Cleveland.

Cleveland now trails 14-3 just before the half.

Browns' coach Hue Jackson said they will be using all the notes they gathered pre-draft on Sam Darnold in their plays and efforts to win.

In the second half, Mayfield took some time to get into a full rhythm, but once he did, the Browns offense looked like a real, live National Football League offense, something we haven't seen in Cleveland in years. On Thursday night against the Jets, Taylor struggled mightily and the Browns fell behind 14-0.

If Taylor's night is over, he finished the contest 4-of-14 passing for just 19 yards through the air.

In the second half, Mayfield showed even more promise. Jackson could also be faced with a hard choice either stick with Mayfield or go back to Taylor when he's healthy. He led the Browns on three more scoring drives, including the eventual game-winning touchdown by Carlos Hyde with just over two minutes to go.
