Baker Mayfield Loses Badly to Titans at Home in between Commercial Shoots
The Cleveland Browns' relentless hype machine was unplugged this past Sunday, at least for one week.
QB Baker Mayfield had a particularly grim day, featuring three picks and five sacks, among other disturbing numbers.
But despite the Browns falling ,43-13, at home to the Titans in a game that wasn't even that close, at least their young chucker was able to squeeze three hours into his busy production schedule.
Part of the endless Browns positive off-season spin was Mayfield becoming a marketable celebrity, and as such he's been in demand.
For example, the Progressive people have him pimping home and auto insurance in a series of moderately clever ads.
But back to the game for a moment.
While there's plenty of blame to pass around for this debacle, dude really played like shit.
Take a look at this late pick-six:
Mayfield was probably thinking about his next Hulu spot.
Or another one from Progressive.
Maybe Flo should be under center for the Browns.

Then it all fell apart in Q4. 3-9 for 21 yards, 3 INTs, and 2 sacks.
If he could only just clean up that fourth quarter.
