Baker Mayfield: I woke up feeling real dangerous

The Browns snapped a four-game losing streak against the Falcons on Sunday and quarterback Baker Mayfield was a big reason why they prevailed.

Mayfield was 17-of-20 for 216 yards and three touchdowns in the 28-16 victory. It’s the first three-touchdown game of his brief career and his 151.8 quarterback rating is the best that the first overall pick has put up during his rookie season.

After the game, Mayfield said that he had a feeling things were going to go well early on Sunday.

“I woke up this morning feeling real dangerous,” Mayfield said, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.

The teams left on the Browns schedule will likely feel the same about Mayfield when they watch tape of his performance on Sunday. There are also likely a few coaches who will watch that tape and want to throw their names into contention to coach with that kind of danger on their side in 2019.

  1. This isn’t a good look for the Brown’s former coach and offensive coordinator. Finally the team is playing up to their potential and the only major thing that’s changed has been the head coach and offensive coordinator.

  2. Good for him, hopefully they get a good HC and OC so he can become a great player. Browns have too much talent on paper to be where they are.

  3. watching Rosen and Darnold throw interceptions every week, looks at this point that the Browns made a good pick for a change

  4. Baker also said of our new HC and OC “they are calling plays we like”. What was the last regime doing? This team is going to be “dangerous” for a long time. Rookies Mayfield, Chubb, Ward, etc. are delivering. It was fun today.

  5. The Browns did something right, or rather two things right: The drafted the best QB available and didn’t listen to the pundits, AND they finally fired Hue Jackson.

    The Browns are going to be a powerhouse in a year or two.

  6. I groaned when the chatter late on draft day said Mayfield to Browns. Man was I wrong. This kid is a dawg and I’m all in. Love this dude all season.

  7. Please….Bust written all over him.
    ================================

    Dude. Please. Go pluck your brow.

  8. There’s a reason Mayfield couldn’t win the starting job at Texas Tech. I guess it’s because he didn’t feel dangerous. Maybe it was Mahomes?

    ——————————————————
    Mahomes replaced Davis Webb, who had replaced an injured Mayfield. Mahomes had one winning season at Tech and that was a 7-6 record. We know what Mayfield did at OK. Mahomes is also in year two and surrounded by some of the greatest offensive talent in the league. The other guy is a rookie. Relax man.

  10. Keep it up kid! We haven’t had this kind of moxy in Cleveland in a very long time. All the negative Nancy’s here are just jealous he’s not on their team. Good things to come in the land!

  11. As a lifelong Steelers fan who is old enough to have experienced the Browns Steelers rivalry before Modell scumbagged Cleveland I am happy for you Browns fans who are 2nd only to us Steelers fans.! I’m excited for the Rivalry to be renewed. And I can only hope that Mason Rudolph can be the type of Qb in NFL that he was at OK State and that Rudolph Baker rivalry can roll over into pros! That’d be great.

    I know as much as I need to about Mayfield. And it’s true he couldn’t win back the starting job at Tech.
