The latest PFF grades show a lot of positives following the Cleveland Browns Week 3 win, starring Baker Mayfield, against the New York Jets.
Pro Football Focus turned its report card for the Cleveland Browns win against the New York Jets, and there’s a lot of positives to celebrate.
First off, as team, the offense received a 67.3 grade, while the passing game grade improved dramatically from the first two weeks of the season when Tyrod Taylor was taking the snaps.
In Taylor’s first two starts, the passing game received 42.9 and 58.5.
It makes you wonder how the Browns’ would’ve fared with Baker Mayfield in from the onset of the season. Competent to good quarterback play may have very well would’v head the Browns at 3-0 right now.
Alas, the Browns are 1-1-1 and set to play meaningful games heading into October for the first time since 2014.
And it’s all because of Mayfield.
Granted, the Browns are vastly improved from the previous two years, as Sashi Brown stripped to roster down to nothing.
The defense is legit with playmakers on the defensive line and in the secondary.
But the quarterback is one who makes it all work, lifting the players around him, driving the momentum of the game.
Here’s how the Browns’ graded out in Pro Football Focus’ recent game grades.
