Be careful of Baker Mayfield debut, but it was impressive

It might only be the preseason, but one game in, Baker Mayfield showed why the Cleveland Browns made him the No. 1 overall pick in this year's National Football League draft.

Mayfield said he didn't experience any jitters in his preseason debut, but did acknowledge that he was glad to get the first game under his belt. In two drives, Taylor went 5-of-5 for 99 yards, including a 36-yard TD down the seam to TE David Njoku (more on him shortly), for a ideal passer rating (158.3).

Mayfield calmly stepped up in the pocket and delivered a low but catchable ball to WR C.J. Board over the middle for a fresh set of downs.

Granted that the game featured plenty of third and fourth stringers on both ends of the field, Barkley's explosiveness can't be understated.

Boris Johnson quit? Burka ban comments ruled not criminal
Sources close to Johnson said earlier this week that calls for him to apologise for the comments were "ridiculous". It's not the job of the Prime Minister to tell backbenchers what to do.


Leading up to Thursday night's preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns, there was an implication that New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. might suit up for the first time since Week 5 of last season.

The Giants went on to kick a 42-yard field goal, putting them ahead 3-0 after twelve minutes into the first quarter.

Mayfield closed 11-of-20 for 212 yards with two scores on the night. On the first series of the fourth quarter, he hit fellow rookie Antonio Callaway on third and four for a 54-yard touchdown pass.
