If Browns' Baker Mayfield wants to be paid, he has to do better with the game on the line
Mayfield, ... , has now been involved in 12 games where the Browns trailed by a touchdown or less in the last four minutes. He has rallied to win three times — against the Jets in his pro debut, against the Bills in 2019 and against the Bengals last year in a game that ignited his turnaround.
Nevertheless, when the Browns are trailing by one score or less, Mayfield is now 27 of 49 in his career for 367 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions in the last four minutes of games, according to SportRadar’s advanced stats. Five interceptions in 12 games. That’s a quarterback rating of 66.8 with the game on the line. That’s simply not good enough.
