before the Cleveland Browns elevated quarterback Baker Mayfield to the starter’s role.Heading into the regular season the team made the right call in letting veteran Tyrod Taylor open the season as the starter. No one wanted to see a repeat of the 2017 season when head coach Hue Jackson mismanaged the situation and Taylor was the safe choice for a team coming off an historic two-year run of futility.It was clear that Taylor would be the starter unless he was injured or became ineffective Womens Nick Chubb Jersey , and both of those criteria intersected on Thursday night against the New York Jets. Taylor was just four-of-14 for 19 yards while taking three sacks before leaving the game late in the second quarter with a concussion. Everyone knows what came next: Mayfield entered the game and energized a crowd that may have been poised to leave at halftime, and led the Browns to a win.With the Browns not playing again until September 30 against the Oakland Raiders, the coaching staff has a few extra days to ponder the matter, but it seems inevitable that the time has come to name Mayfield the starter, which should come on Monday, as Jackson told clevelandbrowns.com:There is a scenario where Jackson could decide to keep Taylor as the starter. The extra days off will help Taylor deal with his concussion, and having a rookie make his first start on the road could be seen as being “risky.”But that is a nightmare scenario that not even Jackson would be willing to risk. If Jackson were to stay with Taylor, he would have an extremely difficult time selling that to the players in the locker room. The bigger fear is that the Browns will name Mayfield the starter but then waffle on the decision if he has a bad game. Taylor gives the team a security blanket on the bench, but once Mayfield takes over, Taylor should not see the field again unless Mayfield gets hurt. It might not be fair for Taylor to lose his job in part because of an injury, but he was never the longterm answer at quarterback for the Browns. The time has come for the Browns to become Baker Mayfield’s team. It should be one heck of a ride. The Browns came out and dominated the first quarter against the Steelers. The rest of the game Authentic Duke Johnson Jersey , they were out-matched in every facet, losing 33-18 and dropping to 2-5-1. If Jimmy Haslam doesn’t pull the trigger and just fire Hue Jackson after this game, then what the heck is he waiting for?Cleveland started off the game fairly well, scoring their first opening-drive points of the season. It was only a field goal (34 yards out from K Greg Joseph), but that’s better than nothing to give the Browns a 3-0 lead.Penalties played a big factor in the first quarter. Pittsburgh went three-and-out, and on their next drive, QB Ben Roethlisberger was picked off by SS Derrick Kindred on third down off of a tipped pass, giving Cleveland the ball near midfield. Back-to-back runs by RB Nick Chubb of 20 and 11 yards put them in field goal range. The drive stalled after that, but Joseph connected from 45 yards out to give Cleveland a 6-0 lead.Cleveland got a good return from SS Jabrill Peppers and a tripping penalty on Pittsburgh just before the end of the first quarter, followed by a 21-yard catch by WR Jarvis Landry to close out the quarter. They couldn’t get much closer to start the second quarter, and this time Womens Myles Garrett Jersey , Joseph’s 41-yard field goal went wide right.That mistake was all the momentum that Pittsburgh needed to get things rolling. They converted their first first down with a completion to WR Antonio Brown. Several players later, Roethlisberger pump faked and found Brown wide open down the left sideline for a 43-yard touchdown, giving Pittsburgh the 7-6 advantage.Cleveland got into Pittsburgh territory again on their next drive, but this time, QB Baker Mayfield’s deep third down pass for WR Damion Ratley was intercepted by CB Joe Haden. Roethlisberger moved the chains a couple of times with a quarterback sneak leading into the two-minute warning. A controversial spot gave Pittsburgh more incentive to go for it on a fourth down situation:The Steelers converted, and one play later, FS Damarious Randall just missed intercepting a screen pass that Brown took in for a touchdown, putting them up 14-6.Pittsburgh got the ball to begin the second half and continued having no problems moving the football. Inside of Cleveland territory, Roethlisberger floated a dumpoff pass up to RB Steven Ridley. After he made the catch, Kindred stripped the ball from behind, and CB Denzel Ward came up with the recovery.The offense responded with a three-and-out Womens Baker Mayfield Jersey , sending the defense right back onto the field. The defense, in turn, forced a three-and-out, but their punt backed Cleveland’s offense near their own end zone. On second down, Mayfield ran a playaction fake. LT Desmond Harrison was beat by his man and committed holding in the end zone, leading to a safety, making it a 16-6 game.It looked like Pittsburgh would be in control, but then on the safety kick, Pittsburgh inexplicably let the ball go over their head and no one recovered it, leading to an onside kick recovery by Cleveland (when they weren’t even trying for one). Despite the short field, the Browns had the ugliest drive possible to put their first touchdown on the board with WR Antonio Callaway coming down with it.That made it a 16-12 game http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/derrick-kindred-jersey , but then Joseph missed the extra point badly to keep it that score. On Pittsburgh’s next drive, RB James Conner started the drive with big runs of 30 and 16 yards to move into field goal range. He finished the drive later with a 12-yard sprint around the edge, giving the Steelers a 23-12 lead.The Browns then went three-and-out, with the offensive line blocking no one, before punting back to Pittsburgh, who started near midfield. Early in the fourth, K Chris Boswell knocked it through from 42 yards out to go up 26-12. The Browns went three-and-out again, with another quick punt giving Pittsburgh the ball near midfield.The rest of the game saw the rain start to fall. The Browns did nothing, while Pittsburgh ran the clock out for the remainder of the game — the last of which was a 22-yard sprint by Conner to go up 33-12.A 24-yard touchdown pass to TE Seth DeValve with six seconds left made it 33-18, but the two-point try was no good.Quick HittersQB Baker Mayfield: 22-of-36 for 156 yards, 2 TD http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/trevon-coley-jersey , 1 INT. 1 rush, 9 yards.RB Nick Chubb: 18 carries, 65 yards (3.61 YPC). 2 catches, 10 yards (3 targets).WR Jarvis Landry: 8 catches, 39 yards (12 targets).TE David Njoku: No stats registered.SS Derrick Kindred: 1 interception, 1 forced fumble.DE Myles Garrett: 1 sack.
