Baker Mayfield Has Been a Disaster in 2019

The Big Lead

Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns fell to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, taking a 32-28 defeat on their home field. Mayfield was awful on the day, throwing three interceptions in a game for the second time this season. The Week 6 loss further demonstrated that Mayfield has been an absolute disaster this season.

Against the Seahawks, Mayfield completed 23-of-37 passes for 249, with a touchdown and three picks. He threw behind receivers all day and the only time he was effective was when he scrambled. He rushed for 35 yards and a touchdown on four carries. Other than that, he was terrible.

Sunday was more of the same for Mayfield who has struggled all season. So far this year he’s completed just 112-of-198 passes (56.6 percent), for 1,496 yards, with five touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Those are not the numbers anyone wanted to see out of Mayfield in year two.

Mayfield’s calling-card coming into the NFL was his accuracy. More than anything else, he had an innate ability to put the ball where it needed to be. He hasn’t done that consistently this season. He hasn’t even been close.
