Hue Jackson somehow not ready to commit to Baker Mayfield

Hue Jackson somehow not ready to commit to Baker Mayfield

Cleveland instantly took the momentum of the game under Mayfield, who ended up throwing for 201 yards in just over two quarters of action, easily outdueling Sam Darnold of the Jets, who was taken two picks after Mayfield in the draft.

"Dilly Dilly to the Cleveland fans", said Mayfield, who led the Browns to the comeback win in his first regular-season game action since being picked first overall in April's National Football League draft.

Cleveland passed on taking Darnold in the draft and instead chose Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy victor from the University of Oklahoma.

To set the promo in motion, beer fridges filled with Bud Lights had been scattered around the Cleveland metropolitan area, secured with chains and adorned with the motivational phrase: "When the Browns win, Cleveland wins". Jackson could also be faced with a hard choice - either stick with Mayfield or go back to Taylor when he's healthy.

Taylor led the Browns to a 0-1-1 record through the first two weeks, but was ruled out due to a concussion early in the second half. "That's my job, that's what I'll do". 'I'm just getting started'. Mayfield drove Cleveland into field-goal position and Joseph, who signed with the team on Monday following a tryout, drilled a low line drive to pull the Browns within 14-3.

Taylor Foy, spokesman for Republicans on the panel, said after the call that Grassley "will consult with his colleagues on the committee".

Taylor's injury may change everything. The former Oklahoma star quarterback, in his National Football League debut, led the Browns to their first win since Christmas Eve 2016.

Then the Browns executed a successful 2-point conversion to tie the score 14-14 when running back Duke Johnson took the snap, pitched the ball to Landry and Mayfield caught Landry's pass in the end zone. It also drew a 15-yard penalty. Coming into Thursday night's game, the team had gone 1-32-1 for Jackson, including an 0-16 finish in 2017 that resulted in fans holding a parade to celebrate their shortcomings.

The Browns play the Raiders next week. He avoided turnovers until the fourth quarter, when he missed two chances to stage his first come-from-behind win. They looked almost the complete opposite in Week 2.

The Browns defense produced three more turnovers.
