Baker Mayfield’s First NFL Preseason Game Is Over

Tyrod Taylor Browns'have a ton of playmakers on offense

Baker Mayfield did a lot of things well in his National Football League preseason debut Thursday night against the Giants, including prove to his many lazy Johnny Manziel-comparing doubters that he's a lot more pro-ready than they think. By the end of his junior season, a panel of Penn State experts said Barkley had surpassed him.

The Giants open the preseason on Thursday against the Browns. He appeared finished by the second quarter; he had four total carries for 43 yards. Then he bounced it outside and gained the edge on flat-footed Browns CB Damarious Randall.

While that was all well and good, Mayfield's showcase came after Taylor completed all of his pass attempts (5 for 5, 99 yards) in posting a flawless passer rating (158.3) and had the more impressive TD connection with Njoku.

Taylor and Landry are the faces of an influx of talent this offseason following the franchise's first winless season. The second, Mayfield stepped up in the pocket for a 21-yard completion to fellow rookie Antonio Callaway.

Rather than skipping those moments, however, they will be aired later in the broadcast, with the best parts being aired. The final reform will be to hold the ceremony earlier in the calendar year - in 2020, it will shift to February 9.

Taylor lobbed a 32-yard pass to Landry down the opposing sideline in a play that set the tone for an offense that stands to be much improved this fall.

The Browns let Mayfield play into the fourth quarter after he entered in the second.

"If you're not going to work hard, then you're not doing it right", Mayfield said.

Mayfield finished a stellar evening 11-of-20 for 212 yards and two touchdowns. But this is a different year with a lot of different players. That's unlikely, as Hue Jackson and John Dorsey have up until now been steadfast in the support of the starter, Taylor, who couldn't have been more efficient in his own Browns debut. In the meantime, former Buffalo Bills signal-caller Tyrod Taylor will start and serve as Mayfield's mentor.
