Stud: Baker Mayfield

It was Week 10 in 2018 when Baker Mayfield said he woke up feeling dangerous. One year later, Mayfield must have woken up feeling dangerous once again because he was able to pick apart the top Buffalo passing defense.

Mayfield looked confident throwing against the Bills defense and was not afraid to go after Buffalo’s No. 1 cornerback TreDavious White. He was also willing to take some shots downfield, which is what the Browns offense has been lacking.

Mayfield completed 26 of his 38 pass attempts for 238 yards and two touchdowns. He finished the game with a passer rating of 102.7. Despite completing 26 passes, Mayfield completed a pass to six different receivers.

Mayfield was on time with most of his throws, which has been one of his biggest issues this season. He also had the confidence to throw into tight windows and the Browns receivers were able to finish off the plays.

Next. Browns can sustain success from Week 10 win. dark

The Browns passing offense thrived against Buffalo because Mayfield was testing the secondary at all levels. He was not afraid to throw over the middle of the field, but was also accurate throwing outside the numbers. It was a major step for the Browns offense and hopefully an outing Mayfield can build on.
