Mayfield managed to put together four scoring drives and led the Browns back from a 14-3 deficit to beat the New York Jets 21-17 on Thursday night, and will make his first-ever regular-season start against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
“He has that magnetism,” Browns coach Hue Jackson said following last week’s win over the Jets. “He has it. He is still a young player. He has a lot of work to do. He has got to keep working. It was his coming out party. It is just really ironic that it happened that the quarterback on the other side was a rookie, too. Baker did some good things tonight. He truly did.”
