I did not see Baker Mayfield the QB1 showing up anytime soon. In fact, I was really looking forward to a battle between two of the league’s best running backs today, but instead what we’ve gotten is Baker Mayfield’s coming out party.
4 touchdowns. 290 yards. 6 scoring drives. Numerous dimes that I can’t do justice to with words. Oh yea, he also had an incredible catch that is getting lost in the shuffle of his blazing performance.
This is probably Baker Mayfield’s best highlight of the season. pic.twitter.com/SdglMscy4e

It’s been a shocking afternoon for probably everyone except Baker Mayfield and Kevin Stefanski.
From the first snap, Mayfield seemed locked in and the Titans seemed unsure. The first drive would have ended in a TD had it not been for a bad drop by Donovan People-Jones. Of course, People-Jones would make up for it shortly after.
This is @BakerMayfield‘s FOURTH TD pass in the first half. 🎯

Mayfield looked patient in the pocket, confident, and kept his feet moving. He connected with 9 different receivers in the first half and even used his legs for an important first-down run. More importantly, he’s playing with the swagger we saw back in Oklahoma St. and his first year in the league.
I recently promised myself I wouldn’t start Baker Mayfield on any of my teams for the rest of the season. I’m sticking with that promise, but today may be the day Mayfield begins to look like the No.1 overall pick again. That being said, I’m looking forward to Chubb finishing this game off on the ground for the Browns. He looks dominant on the ground and look for him to finish the game strong. The Browns look like the Monstars today.
Absolute DIME from Baker Mayfield! Looking like a new QB against the Titans 🚨🚨🚨 pic.twitter.com/JhEKwndvKB

P.S. Kevin Stefanski for Coach of the Year.
