Baker Mayfield completes first pass of his National Football League career


Once the Bud Light coolers were unlocked in Cleveland, fans who weren't at the game were all in on the celebration. Barack Obama was still President.

It's no secret that FS1 personality Colin Cowherd and Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield aren't the biggest fans of each other.

So this begs the question, where does Mayfield's strong debut rank among the all-time rookie quarterback debuts since PFF began grading every snap of every National Football League game in 2006.

When the fridges opened shortly before midnight, the crowd erupted into cheers, clamoring for the roughly 200 12-ounce Bud Lights in the coolers.

Even former Cavaliers player LeBron James congratulated the Browns Thursday evening.

If nothing else, his reaction was much better than last week's - when James came at kicker Zane Gonzalez after missing two critical field goals and extra points in the Browns' loss to the New Orleans Saints. Cleveland definitely deserved tonight.

"We didn't steal it from the (Eagles)", Jackson said after the game. He's just a special dude. The fan then dropped the animal in a box provided by security. Mayfield, who replaced Taylor, was sharp and accurate in guiding the Browns to their first win since December 24, 2016. The free beer thing.Ok Cleveland.
