Baker Mayfield will be the Browns’ starter before people think
Baker Mayfield got his first start for the Browns in Cleveland’s final preseason game against the Lions, and was impressive completing 9-of-16 passes for 138 yards while leading three scoring drives, albeit against a Detroit team that sat all of its starters.
Colin doesn’t think there is much to takeaway from the final preseason game, but does think Mayfield’s performance will stick in the minds of Cleveland fans, and management. When Tyrod Taylor inevitably struggles at some point this year, fans last memory of Baker will be of him shredding the Lions, which will lead to a quick hook for Taylor and Mayfield starting sooner than most people are predicting.
