National Football League preseason 2018: Giants vs
Aug 10 2018
Since he was drafted with the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, there has been a lot of good things about what Baker Mayfield has done with the Cleveland Browns. The sports book had the Giants-Browns game on one of its main TVs, though according to Ben Fawkes of ESPN the biggest focus on Thursday night was on multiple baseball games. His other four rushing attempts went for no gain, minus-two yards, three yards and three yards.
Mayfield found tight end David Njoku on a 10-yard TD pass to cap a 14-play, 72-yard drive on his second series.
Mayfield calmly stepped up in the pocket and delivered a low but catchable ball to WR C.J. Board over the middle for a fresh set of downs. Mayfield was much better against the second-teamers, hitting Njoku on a 10-yard scoring pass to give the Browns a 13-3 lead in the second quarter. The rookie quarterback completed a pass on third-and-18. Taylor will start under center, though not expected to stay in the game long.
In his very first carry in the NFL, Barkley broke tackles and zoomed out of the backfield for a 39-yard run during the first quarter of Thursday's preseason match against the Browns.
Mayfield made his National Football League debut against the New York Giants on Thursday, and once again was very impressive.
Mayfield finished the night 11-of-20 passing for 212 yards and two touchdowns. I hope you enjoy the show!
