Final Score: Cleveland Browns 12, Baltimore Ravens 09
Rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield continued his strong play to start his career, despite another interception that occurred early in the game when there was a miscommunication with receiver Rashard Higgins. Outside of that, Mayfield protected the ball, made timely conversions, and drove the Browns into field goal range multiple times, before the Browns finally won it in overtime.
Much has been made of the improvement of rookie UDFA left tackle Desmond Harrison over the past three games, but he got his first real test against the Ravens Terrell Suggs today. Needless to say, he struggled to block him, as the future Hall of Famer bull-rushed Harrison all game long, which forced Mayfield off his spot for much of the afternoon.
