3. Baker Mayfield
2018 No. 1 pick vs. 2020 No. 1 pick. Mayfield vs. Burrow. Both quarterbacks were held in check last week but it is time for one to step up. This has to be Mayfield.
There is a ton of pressure on Mayfield since he entered the league. It has only grown because of the fact that he has severely underachieved. Week 1 gave the same feel that Browns’ fans are used to.
Yes, they were playing one of the top teams in the league but can Cleveland at least try to compete? Mayfield needs to be better and he will have a chance to expose a Bengals’ defense on Thursday night.
Cincinnati played well on Sunday as they held the Chargers to just one touchdown.On paper, the Chargers’ offense is not impressive. The Browns have some weapons within their offense and they will have to show up.
