The Browns have their first victory since December 24, 2016. Not winning a game for almost two entire YEARS could honestly make a fan go numb to the fact that they are actively rooting for a team anymore.
After coming into the second quarter of Cleveland's game against the Jets for the injured Tyrod Taylor, Mayfield orchestrated a drive that ended in a field goal, giving the Browns their first points of the game. "It was just spur of the moment, but I need to control myself".
Mayfield was 17-of-23 for 201 yards on the way to the win and he also caught a two-point conversion.
Despite his impressive play, Hue Jackson wouldn't name him the team's starter going forward. He was seen getting doused with champagne during the team's impromptu trip to Las Vegas that night and then was shirtless again for the city-wide celebration that followed three days later. His Total QBR of 95.4 was the highest in a game for anyone who did not throw a touchdown pass (minimum 20 plays) in the last five seasons, according to ESPN Stats and Information. According to ESPN Stats and Information, the Browns had been 1-72-1 in those games before Thursday night.
"Like I said a second ago, until I am able to talk to the players".
"We call it the "Philly Special", guard Joel Bitonio said. "I know everybody wants to think that, we've had that in our back pocket for awhile".
