Baker Mayfield’s First NFL Preseason Game Is Over

Browns vs. Giants how to watch listen stream the 2018 preseason opener

The Browns might not be counting on too much from Mayfield early on as veteran Tyrod Taylor is Cleveland's starter, but NY expects a huge boost for its offense from the Penn State running back.

Mayfield, the first-overall pick in the draft this spring, finished 11-of-20 for 212 yards and touchdowns, including a long touchdown strike to rookie receiver Antonio Callaway in the fourth quarter.

"They came out with some fire", head coach Hue Jackson said during a halftime broadcast. There's no doubt that topic will come up again after Mayfield used the Giants to add to the dazzling highlight reel that made him a Heisman Trophy victor at Oklahoma.

Welcome to the NFL, Baker Mayfield. Yes, he employed his feet well to buy time to throw and used his legs to scramble for a first down.

The Browns (1-0) responded with 13 unanswered points, a run that overlapped with rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield's National Football League debut.

The Browns let Mayfield play into the fourth quarter after he entered in the second.

On Mayfield's seventh and final drive, he showed he can run an efficient offense, going 3-for-3 through the air, including a 54-yard pass to Callaway for his second touchdown of the night.

Likewise, Landry - a three-time Pro Bowler spent the past four years with the Miami Dolphins - finished with two catches for 36 yards in limited playing time.

In addition to his rushes, Mayfield completed two passes of more than 20 yards on the drive.
