Baker Mayfield had himself a day!
His first quarter Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals couldn’t have gone any worse, but from then on, he was damn near perfect.
Mayfield rebounded from an 0-of-5 passing start to break a franchise record with 21 consecutive completions, propelling Cleveland to a thrilling 37-34 comeback victory over the Bengals in Cincinnati.
After the game, the 25-year-old channeled DMX by quoting one of his songs:
“Just got back on track. Whatever it takes to win. Stop, drop, shut ‘em down, open up shop,” he said in his Zoom postgame with reporters, causally dropping in lyrics from DMX’s Ruff Ryders’ Anthem.
Mayfield finished the game completing 22 of 28 passes for 297 yards and five touchdowns, including the game-winning score on a 24-yard pass into the end zone with 15 seconds left in the game.
