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