Cleveland Browns 21, New York Jets 17 Analyst Takeaways Rookie QB Baker Mayfield did a tremendous job following the early departure of Tyrod Taylor.
He orchestrated the late second quarter drive that put the first three points on the board and led scoring drives both ending in Carlos Hyde touchdowns.
To top it all off, he collected a two-point conversion following their third-quarter score on a trick pass from Jarvis Landry.
The Browns came into the game coming off two defensive performances that arguably should have netted two wins.
The Browns defense were a historically great (in terms of yards per rush allowed) run defense in 2017 and lost every game.
Against the Jets, they gave up two touchdowns and many chunk plays but it didn’t matter in the end as the Browns coverage on the back end was excellent holding Darnold 5.5 yards per attempt and forcing several incomplete passes.
Rookie QB Sam Darnold struggled, to say the least, against Gregg Williams and the exotic and aggressive Browns defense.
Left tackle Kelvin Beachum is not a household name by any stretch of the imagination but he held his own against Garrett when facing him.

Analyst Takeaways

Rookie QB Baker Mayfield did a tremendous job following the early departure of Tyrod Taylor. He orchestrated the late second quarter drive that put the first three points on the board and led scoring drives both ending in Carlos Hyde touchdowns. To top it all off, he collected a two-point conversion following their third-quarter score on a trick pass from Jarvis Landry. Mayfield may have found playing time due to an injury but this performance should clear away a path to securing the starting job, moving forward.

Making fantasy owners happy across the nation, Landry’s involvement increased exponentially with Mayfield under center, and ended up eclipsing 100 receiving yards…
