Baker Mayfield Would’ve Had Higher Passer Rating vs 49ers If He Spiked The Ball Into Ground Every Play

Baker Mayfield has gone from rookie sensation to Browns fans hoping the sophomore slump is a real thing.

The Browns quarterback had an awful showing Monday night against the 49ers, completing just 8 passes all game on 22 attempts, managing just 100 yards with no touchdowns and 2 interceptions.

That performance earned Baker a quarterback rating of 13. If a quarterback takes every snap, drops back, and throws it into the ground on every play, it equates to a 39.
