Hey, Cleveland. How great did that win over the Ravens feel? I admit I was a little concerned when we went to overtime if any NFL team can get two tie games in a single season. Well, we have that ‘special’ sort of luck.
Aside from some painful special teams moments and the obligatory blown calls by the zebras who need guide dogs, I was happy with the team’s play. Not perfect by a long shot, but it is just so good to see our guys really hang in there and pull together.
This week my Top Dawg distinction goes to the NFL’s number one draft pick for 2018 and the guy I may almost forgive for planting that flag in Ohio Stadium, quarterback, Baker Mayfield. While we saw some game-changing contributions by Denzel Ward, Baker passed for over 300 yards including a touchdown strike to Rashard Higgins. Mayfield made some heads-up decisions, especially when running the ball. He is growing into the quarterback the Browns need now and in the future. Well done, Baker Mayfield. I think I can speak for Browns fans everywhere when I say, winning feels great!
Week 1: Denzel Ward – 2 INT
Week 2: Larry Ogunjobi – 2 Sacks
Week 3: Carlos Hyde – 2 TD’s 98 yards rushing
Week 4: Nick Chubb- 100+ yards rushing and two TD’s
