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

  • Cleveland Browns color rush uniforms

It was just Cleveland's second win in 38 games.

He replaced Taylor who left with a concussion.

Prior to Mayfield entering the game, the Browns' offense sputtered through the first half, as Taylor struggled to find any kind of a rhythm and completed just four of his 14 attempts for 19 yards before the concussion brought his night to a premature end. The Browns sealed the win when cornerback Terrance Mitchell intercepted a deep pass Darnold intended for Anderson with six seconds left.

When the final seconds ticked off the clock, Cleveland fans, who had endured a 0-16 season and waited almost two years to see their Browns win, erupted in celebration. That happened, Bud Light obliged, and voila: Free booze.

The No. 1 overall pick finished 17-for-23 with 201 passing yards, helping Cleveland get its first win in 635 days. He was also sacked three times for a loss of 22 yards.

It was just Browns coach Hue Jackson's second win in 35 games and will go some way to easing the pressure on his position.

While Cleveland is undoubtedly enjoying the victory, Jackson will soon have to answer a tough question - ride Mayfield, or go back to Taylor when he recovers.

The decision might not be as tough now. Then Mayfield took a pass on a trick play from Jarvis Landry to tie things up.

The Cleveland Browns have had quite the Cleveland Browns kind of start to the season, almost defeating two of the better teams in the league, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New Orleans Saints, but blowing it because of so many dumb mistakes. Bud Light had planned to change out the beer with fresh beer if the Browns' losing streak continued.

After three games, Darnold has four interceptions, including two in the first quarter and two in the fourth. Darnold completed 15-of-31 passes for 169 yards and two picks, the last coming in the final seconds of the game. The Jets took the lead on a 12-play, 65-yard field-goal drive, but they might have immediately regretted not going for it on 4th-and-3 from the Cleveland 10-yard line.

"It may or may not have been [called] 'Philly Special, '" Mayfield told NFL Network, "but keep in mind the last game I played I caught a pass, too".

You can also watch Crowell's second touchdown run of the night below, via the NFL's official Twitter account.

Crowell's untouched 7-yard run TD run came five plays after Jets linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis got a hand on Britton Colquitt's attempted punt and NY took over at Cleveland's 28. That play seemed to get the Browns going with Cleveland following up that field goal drive with two consecutive touchdown drives.

It only took three games for Browns fans to drink for free.

Joseph stayed on the field and kicked by himself during the opening coin toss, and each of his makes drew a rousing ovation from Cleveland fans.

Jackson spoke highly about Mayfield after the game, even after he admitted the Browns thought he wasn't ready to start from Week 1. Zegura, who also co-hosts the team's in-house radio broadcast, can't work a game until November 25.

Meanwhile, the Jets will be seeking redemption that same day in Jacksonville.
