Baker Mayfield throws 4 first-half TDs

As Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns showed on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, the team can do more than simply run the football. As a result, the NFL’s longest active playoff losing streak will most likely end after 18 seasons.

In the game, Mayfield threw for 334 yards and four touchdowns in the first half to lead the Browns to a 41-35 victory. It was Cleveland’s fourth straight win.

Mayfield became the first Browns quarterback to throw four touchdowns in the first half of a game since Otto Graham did it back in 1951, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer noted.

Baker completed passes to nine different players to lead the Browns to a 38-7 halftime lead, which was a franchise record for points in a half. In addition, he has now thrown 156 passes without an interception

“Our defense played lights out,” said Mayfield. “To be able to shut the run game down to where we could get up by that much to where they were having to throw the ball, that was our most complete game. I know we did not finish the way we wanted to by any means, but in the first half, that was the most complete game or complete half that we have played.”

The Titans (8-4), who were leading the AFC South, dropped out of first place in the division after the Colts beat Houston, 26-20.
