Baker Mayfield is just the gift Cleveland fans needed, especially with LeBron James gone – Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland.com
"The love affair between Mayfield and the fans began the moment he came bounding off the bench to win the Jets game in Week 3, and continued through Sunday’s 26-18 victory over the Bengals in the home finale that improved the Browns to 7-7-1 overall and 5-2-1 at home."
If it was not obvious how the much Browns fan base loves Mayfield, hearing the entire crowd chant “Baker” at the end of the game Sunday should be all the evidence anyone needs. With the Browns looking to compete for the playoffs in 2019, Mayfield will have an entire city behind him in support.
