Since the Cleveland Browns made the decision to part ways with head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley, there has been a notable uptick in offensive production in the weeks that have followed.
Most notably, rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield has played at a higher level, proving to be a capable starting quarterback that can lead his team to success in the process. According to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk, Mayfield has had a huge uptick in his production under the guidance of interim head coach Gregg Williams and new offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens.
With Jackson and Haley running the offense, Mayfield completed 58.3 percent of his passes, averaged 6.6 yards per pass, had eight touchdowns and six interceptions, had a 78.9 passer rating and was sacked 20 times. Since Jackson and Haley were fired, Mayfield has completed 73.2 percent of his passes, averaged 9.2 yards per pass, thrown 11 touchdown passes and four interceptions, has a 114.5 passer rating, and has been sacked three times.
