Baker Mayfield has played a Pro Bowl video in the last 4 games

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Baker Mayfield did not make the Pro Bowl in the third season of the NFL, but he certainly played in a Pro Bowl clip his last four games.

During that stretch, the Browns went 3-1 on 10-4, and Mayfield threw 10 touchdowns against a single interception. It also completed 70% of its subscriptions and obtained a rating of 117.7.

The torrid stretch, which included victories over the Jaguars, Titans and Giants and a loss to the Ravens, catapulted him to 11th place in the NFL with a score of 99.4. That increased by 13 places compared to the clogged quartet, when he checked in at 90.0.

Three ratings above 100.0 are included, and the Browns are 15-1 in Mayfield’s career when they post a rating of 100.0 plus. These ratings were 116.7, 147.0 and 126.2.

During Sunday night’s 20-6 victory over the Giants (5-9), Mayfield set a completion percentage record of 84.3 for players with a minimum of 25 tries. For players with at least 15 attempts, it is the third best mark in the history of the team.

“Baker was very, very sharp,” said coach Kevin Stefanski. “[But] the percentage of completion is not a perfect state to tell the whole story. Not. 1, I didn’t have any drops last night and I had a few contested catches, so play.

“Teams that play large areas where you work the areas below a high clip play in that. I saw over a bunch of ball games that he put the ball in tight windows – I think of Jarvis [Landry’s] touchdown last night. It’s an all-encompassing statistic, which is really a statistic of the team between Baker and the boys at the end. “

But Stefanski would not admit that Mayfield’s accuracy is improving.

“I should really study him during the season,” he said. “This is one of his strong suits, it’s his accuracy.”

With new Pro Bowl teammate James Bradberry – tied at the top of the league with 17 breaks – placed at home on the Giants’ COVID-19 reserve list, Mayfield chose the secondary differential, one that featured a safety in Julian Love who moved for night and a corner defender in Isaac Yiadom, who had been on the bench for three games earlier this season. The Giants played a zone, but it was not a match for Mayfield and Co.

“It has definitely changed some things,” said Logan Ryan, Giants safety. “You can’t replace James Bradberry, but everyone has to act differently, doing a little more. Honestly, our hats to the Browns. I think our coverage has been tight; they made a few contested catches. We really loaded up to stop the running game, which we did, but we really weren’t good in the third down or in the red zone, which is, situationally, the way you win football games. “

With Mayfield’s accuracy, protection and offense, the back-to-back defensive has no chance against him – especially with the gameplay working perfectly, as it did against the Giants.

“Baker’s hats,” Ryan said. “He played very effectively today and, if we didn’t respect him before, we definitely have him now. He was one of the most efficient defenders we faced this year. “

The Giants, who have pressured Mayfield with just eight of its 33 players, are not the only team to have said that lately.

In fact, the difference from Mayfield at the start of the season, when he came on the learning curve in Stefanski’s offense so far, is amazing. In the first six weeks, he was ranked 28th in the 57.3 pass among the NFL’s starting defenders, according to Since then, he is No. 2 only for Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay, at 91.9.

Against the Giants, Mayfield (27-of-32, 297 yards, 1 sack, 2 TDs, 0 INTs, 126.2 rating) led all starting defenders in Week 15 with a passing score of 92.4 , the biggest of his career.

His qualifier in throwing more than 10 meters down, thanks in large part to the action, was also the second best season. He completed 12-of-14 for 189 yards and two TDs in his 10-yard attempts with four big throws.

Mayfield was so effective that he climbed to 5th place in ESPN’s QPN ranking with a score of 76.6. He is in a top 5 company with Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes of Kansas City, Josh Allen of Buffalo and Ryan Tannehill of Tennessee, among whom he may meet in the playoffs.

“I didn’t want to expand the plays,” Ryan said. “I didn’t want it to come out of my pocket, we think it’s great. We sold ourselves to stop the race, we made Baker Mayfield a pocket defender and he was extremely efficient in that regard. He played well. “

If you keep it that way, anything can happen when I get into the postseason.
