3. Move into top-5 passing touchdowns for Browns
In addition to already being in the top-10 for passing yardage in Cleveland Browns history, Baker Mayfield is also among the leaders in touchdowns after just two seasons. After setting the rookie record with 27 in 2018, he threw 22 more in his sophomore campaign.
That puts Mayfield at 49, which nearly made him the first Browns signal-caller to throw 50 touchdown passes in his first two years in the league. He’s still on pace to be the quickest to 50 which will also mean he can be the quickest to 75, 100, etc.
As for this season, he has a shot at cracking the top-5 for passing touchdowns in team history, even if he only throws the 22 he had as a sophomore. That’s because he enters this season with just 22 fewer than Bill Nelson’s 71, which is fifth all-time in Cleveland history.
Mayfield has already surpassed players such as Mike Phipps (40), Derek Anderson (46), and Vinny Testaverde (47). He’s 15 behind Tim Couch (64) and 17 behind Milt Plum (66). The top four stand above the rest with Bernie Kosar (116), Frank Ryan (134), Brian Sipe (154), and Otto Graham (174).
As long as Mayfield stays the starter in Cleveland, he should be able to knock all those players down the list. But for this season, he just needs to focus on the top-5.
