Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield proved Sunday that games aren’t won and lost in the first quarter no matter how much noise is made on social media during the game.
Mayfield, who was reportedly playing with a cracked rib, started the game against the Cincinnati Bengals, 0-for-5 with an interception. But it was the three other quarters where he really shined.
