The Cleveland Browns remain undefeated at home (can you believe it) and these five players saw their stocks jump after the win against Baltimore.

The Cleveland Browns did what many think they couldn’t do, knocking off the favorite Baltimore Ravens for their second win of the year.

This is a big one for the Browns, as it’s the franchise first win on a Sunday since Dec. 24, 2016.

The victory also goes down as Hue Jackson’s first victory over a divisional opponent. Prior to today, Jackson was 0-13 against teams in the AFC North.

The Browns moved to 2-2-1 in victory, and these five players saw their stocks jump.

Baker Mayfield outdueled Joe Flacco. He didn’t light up the scoreboard like Patrick Homes, but the moment never looked too big for the Oklahoma product.

He played like a rookie at times, but on the flip side of that, you see why some want to compare him to Drew Brees and Brett Favre.

He put together a stellar end of the half drive to give the Browns a lead heading into halftime. And then, even though it took him three chances, he connected with Derrick Willies on really what was the play that decided the game during the third drive of overtime.

From 3rd and 8 at the Browns’ 18. Enjoy…

Mayfield 25-45 for 342 yards through the air. He threw a touchdown and interception. He took five sacks. A couple of those were coverage sacks, meaning he just had no one to throw to.

He showed some good chemistry with Rasard Higgins, completing three passes for 66 yards and a score to the fourth-year veteran.

The victory is a step in the right direction following a game in which Mayfield turned the ball over four times against the Raiders.
