Not quite game balls

When you lose there are no game balls. These guys were contenders.

Mayfield: Baker Mayfield could’ve went into the tank after his pass bounced off the hands of Antonio Callaway for a pick-6 during the first quarter. Lots of Browns’ quarterbacks have folded over less.

Instead, Mayfield rebounded, and had the Browns up 14 in the second half.

Oakland made a comeback and while they weren’t entirely his fault, Mayfield played a part in the Raiders’ resurgence, committing two second-half turnovers.

It also didn’t help that the Browns went five possessions in the second half without getting a first down.

Overall, Mayfield had four turnovers: Two touchdowns and two interceptions. He was 21-of-41 for 295 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 10 yards on the ground.

Yes, he made mistakes, but the Browns’ weren’t in this one without him.

Nick Chubb: What an electric game.. The rookie had seven carries for 41 yards this season before finally ripping off that huge 63-yard scoring play. His second, for 41 yards, sealed the win for Cleveland.

Joe Schobert: A sack and coverage that led to an interception by E.J. Gaines at the end of the first half. He’s not known as a playmaker, but that wasn’t the case today.

Schobert totaled 14 total tackles, had the sack, and was credited with a  hit and a tackle for a loss.
