Baker Mayfield is a quarterback who thrives on confidence, and if you ever needed a read on whether the rookie was playing confidently, look no further than this play.
During the final regular season game for the Browns Sunday against the Ravens, Mayfield was able to connect with WR Jarvis Landry for a 48-yard TD, but it’s what he did before throwing the ball that go everyone’s attention.
Instead of simply having a WR come across the line, Mayfield threw the ball into the air and caught it, Baltimore’s safeties in. After the defense realized it was a fake, it was too late.
