Former Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield leads Browns to first win since 2016

It's Baker Mayfield time in Cleveland.

On Thursday night against the Jets, Taylor struggled mightily and the Browns fell behind 14-0.

What made the Browns' outlook for the rest of the contest was the injury sustained by Cleveland starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who was forced out of the game in the first half with a head injury, later reported as a concussion, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Mayfield connected with Jarvis Landry for his first ever career completion, then led the Browns down the field for three points.

He led the Browns to a field goal on his debut drive.

Cleveland now trails 14-3 just before the half.

The Jets will likely focus on their ground game and if rookie quarterback Sam Darnold does pass in this Week 3 matchup, it'll be to premier players like Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson.

On the first play of the second quarter, Crowell took an inside handoff and raced into the end zone before firing the ball into the stands in celebration. It's expected that the Jets will also go back to what worked in Week 1 and focus more on their ground game to beat the Browns. Crowell spent four seasons with the Browns before signing a three-year, $12 million free agent contract with NY as a free agent in March. Zegura, who also co-hosts the team's in-house radio broadcast, can't work a game until November 25. WR Charone Peake sustained a hamstring injury.
