Browns benefiting from 'Bakermania' after win

The Browns are basking in "Bakermania" after rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield helped end the team's winless streak and cause surges in ticket and jersey sales.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

ESPN Stats and Information shows that the Jets blitzed Tyrod Taylor on two-of-three dropbacks, and he was pressured on half his dropbacks (it seemed like more). The blitz number dropped to 45.8 percent with Baker Mayfield playing, and the pressures to 20.8 percent. Amazing what happens when a guy reads and throws quickly.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

One item of concern: The concussion that sidelined quarterback Tyrod Taylor was his third in 13 months.. Taylor left the Buffalo Bills playoff game in January against Jacksonville with a concussion. He had another in a preseason game against Baltimore. When he came back after preseason to start the opener, Taylor told the media in Buffalo he had “one other documented concussion, in 2013.”

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

I'm not prone to exaggerating, but I don't think there's any underselling the way Baker Mayfield played Thursday night. He ran the offense, he was precise in his accuracy, he made players better, he brought excitement and energy, and he showed chutzpah. If this is for real and he sustains it – and it will get harder -- the entire Browns narrative changes.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Following their loss to the Browns Thursday, the Jets dropped two spots to 30th in FPI's rankings -- only ahead of the Bills and Cardinals. Cleveland moved up two spots to 24th.
