  • Cleveland Browns Tyrod Taylor New Orleans Saints

After a winless streak lasting 635 days, the Browns staged a comeback Thursday night to beat New York Jets 21-17 in Cleveland. The last time they walked off the field with a win, it was Week 16 of the 2016 campaign, as Robert Griffin III led the team to a 20-17 victory over the San Diego Chargers.

The Browns have won a football game. "I have had some great memories, but I am just getting started". Mayfield came in late in the second quarter for the injured Tyrod Taylor and he took the game over. The Browns later announced Taylor did sustain a concussion and would not be returning.

"Dilly Dilly to the Cleveland fans", said Mayfield, who led the Browns to the comeback win in his first regular-season game action since being picked first overall in April's National Football League draft. I have to bring a spark and give us a chance to win.

Anheuser-Busch sponsored the Victory Fridge promotion in conjunction with Brecksville-based distributor House of La Rose, promising free Bud Light to long-suffering Browns fans if and when the team finally won a game.

Refrigerators around the city stocked with Bud Lights were finally unlocked, and there figured to be more than a few beverages consumed in the hours ahead. 'It's not the only win we're going to celebrate'. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor really struggled, completing just 4-of-14 for 19 yards.


It was just Browns coach Hue Jackson's second win in 35 games and will go some way to easing the pressure on his position.

Taylor led the Browns to a 0-1-1 record through the first two weeks, but was ruled out due to a concussion early in the second half.

Isaiah Crowell is having quite a night against his former Cleveland Browns team.

Taylor's injury, however, later turned into a blessing in disguise for the Browns. The rookie gunslinger led the Browns back from a 14-0 deficit, finishing the game completing 17-of-23 passes for 201 yards. Some were calling it Cleveland's version of the "Philly Special" Super Bowl play, but Mayfield was on the receiving end of a touchdown in the Rose Bowl nine months ago that looked similar as well.
