'One of the greatest nights in Cleveland sports history'


//

A stunning debut from 2018 number one pick Baker Mayfield has sent not only Cleveland, but the entire sporting world into delirium, as the Browns ended their losing streak.

Mayfield was inserted into the game by Browns coach Hue Jackson after a concussion forced starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor out of the game. 

The 23-year-old out of Oklahoma put on a debut to remember, becoming the first Cleveland quarterback to have a quarterback rating of over 100 as well as over 200 passing yards in a win since Josh McCown back in 2015.

 Mayfield converted 17 of his 23 passes for over 200 passing yards in a stunning debut

The Victory Fridge

As Mayfield led the Browns to their first NFL win in 635 days, the focus shifted to the victory beer fridges that had been installed by Bud Light around FirstEnergy Stadium, filled with free beer to be unlocked only after a Browns win.

Even the star quarterback had only had one thing on his mind following his incredible outing.

Fellow stars show Baker love

Mayfield's debut caught the eye of several of the world's biggest sporting stars, including former Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James.

However, the best reaction may have been by current Cleveland Cavalier J.R. Smith who promised to take his shirt off inside the stadium at the start of the night if the Browns broke their streak.

 Mayfield was unfazed by the pressure that faced him upon his entrance into the game

Cleveland Erupts

It is often said that despite the tremendous recent success of LeBron James and the Cavaliers, Cleveland is very much a football town. That was proven to be absolutely correct as thousands of fans poured into the streets of downtown Cleveland, scenes reminiscent of when the Cavaliers won the NBA title back in 2016.

Baker unfazed 

Mayfield's unshakable confidence has been one of his hallmark traits dating back to his days at Oklahoma, and he displayed it in a post-game interview with ESPN's Scott Van Pelt.

From the moment I stepped on the field, I could feel the energy of the crowd," Mayfield said on SportsCenter.

"We were just a couple of plays away from putting it all together and getting back in the game.

"I've always been a high-emotional player, playing with fire and passion. So it's nothing new to me."
