Won, won and won! Browns beat Jets for first win since 2016

Anyone watching Thursday night's game between the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets knows that Baker Mayfield stole the starting quarterback job away from Tyrod Taylor. Let's digest that for a moment.

Barack Obama was still president of the United States the last time Cleveland won a game, which was December 24, 2016.

Locked fridges containing free Bud Light were placed all over the city and fans were promised they would be opened when the Browns finally won a game. And people on Twitter had a ball. He and his friends said they plan to keep the beer cans to remember the iconic win.

"From my point of view, I just have to play better, simple as that", Darnold said. He created plays with his legs, he made hard throws look easy, he even caught a two-point conversion on a trick play in which he split out as a receiver and caught a floater in the end zone thrown by wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

The No. 1 overall pick finished 17-for-23 with 201 passing yards, helping Cleveland get its first win in 635 days.

Running back Carlos Hyde scored two second-half touchdowns, including the clincher with 2:04 remaining in the fourth quarter. Taylor underthrew wide-open rookie wideout Antonio Callaway for a potential 75-yard touchdown four minutes into the game.

The Chicago Sun-Times columnist gave Brown the Moonbeam moniker in 1976. "Everywhere you look there's a challenge", Brown said. Perhaps the most significant sign of Brown's global clout was the size of the Chinese delegation at the summit.


Isaiah Crowell insulted Browns fans with an inappropriate touchdown celebration.

I can understand why Crowell might hate the Browns, but rubbing it in like that at the fans is just unacceptable.

Jackson wouldn't commit to staying with Mayfield, but referred to the performance as "his coming out party" several times. But after getting off to a awful start, Taylor suffered a concussion in the second quarter, which opened the door for Mayfield, who woke up a team that was trailing 14-0 when he jogged onto the field to raucous cheers at FirstEnergy Stadium. He was also sacked three times for a loss of 22 yards.

While Jackson hasn't made a decision about whether Mayfield will start next week, it appears Thursday night's game convinced him Mayfield is ready to see snaps in games that matter. Crowell spent four seasons with the Browns before signing a three-year, $12 million free agent contract with NY as a free agent in March.
