Cleveland Browns starting quarterback Baker Mayfield led his team to a 31-21 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday.

In the second quarter, Texans safety Justin Reid intercepted Mayfield and hit his left shoulder in the process. Mayfield then was aided by the Browns trainers to the locker room.

Running back Nick Chubb was certain that Mayfield would return to the field to finish the job.

“I knew when he was going in to get checked out that he’d be back eventually,” Chubb said.

And he did return.

Mayfield did not let the injury hold him back. The 26-year-old completed 19-of-21 for 213 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.

“(The shoulder) kind of popped in and out, but nothing too serious,” Mayfield said. “It’s my left, though. God gave me two.”

Head coach Kevin Stefanski praised Mayfield’s leadership throughout the game.

“Baker’s an extremely competitive person, as you all know,” Stefanski said. “You don’t want him to get hurt, but then he was right back out there leading this team. He was really sharp.”

Mayfield also praised his teammates, Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, for their role in the win.

“Nick had a few runs that got the crowd going,” Mayfield said. “Kareem was real close, too. We’re really blessed to have the offensive line that we do, and to have those two backs and be able to put one of them in when we’re fresh.”

The Browns will return to FirstEnergy Stadium next week to play the Chicago Bears.
