We’re three games into Baker Mayfield’s third year, so what do we really know about the Browns quarterback. The topic came up when Mary Kay Cabot, Doug Lesmerises and I talked about the good, the bad and the unknown from Sunday’s Browns win over Washington. Mayfield is still somewhat unknown as he works his way into yet another new scheme and played efficiently if not spectacularly on Sunday.
Even before the opening kickoff, the Cleveland Browns and Washington Football Team made history on Sunday. With Callie Brownson serving as Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski's chief of staff, Jennifer King working with Washington and NFL official Sarah Thomas calling the game, Sunday's matchup between Cleveland and Washington marked the first game in NFL history with a female coach on each sideline with a female official calling the game.
So what were the biggest takeaways from the win on Sunday? I think we had all hoped that the Browns would be at least 2-1 at this point in the season, but history shows that we've often been disappointed. Over the last two weeks, the Browns have done exactly what they are supposed to do, beat a weaker opponent.
