Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson put on a show on Monday Night Football. Mayfield went 28 of 47 for 343 yards and two touchdowns and also had a rushing TD. On the other side of the ball, Jackson went 11 of 17 for 163 yards and one touchdown and also had 124 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
Clay discussed the two quarterbacks on OutKick this morning.
“What an unbelievable performance from Baker Mayfield. What an unbelievable comeback performance from Lamar Jackson, after he missed almost the entire fourth quarter with what he said were cramps, although I’ve seen a lot of men who have to run to go to the bathroom run before, and that looked like a clear ‘run to the bathroom’ move that Lamar Jackson had when he went sprinting into the locker room. He was running like a man who had to sit down on a toilet.
“But it added to the pure bedlam of this game, that down-the-stretch run here. We ended up with such an unbelievable classic between the Cleveland Browns and the Baltimore Ravens. Baker Mayfield has come into his own over the past several weeks. This was a game that he could not have done much more in than he did. And the offense for the Browns seemed like it was flowing and moving and everything seemed as if it were working. And you had Lamar Jackson. Suddenly, the Ravens are stalled, Trace McSorely looks like he suffers a severe injury on third down trying to run the read-option on–
Let’s be honest, there are a lot of bad football fields, it seemed, this weekend. And on Monday night, where guys couldn’t keep their footing, this is the time of year where a lot of the fields are suffering. Growing grass is difficult. But man it seemed like there were a lot of guys slipping and sliding all over the field in Cleveland last night.
“–Trace McSorely goes down with a serious injury. He’s not able to play. Everybody is looking around and trying to make, you know, a decision. ‘Oh my goodness. What do the Ravens do in this situation with the injury, potentially to Trace McSorely?’ When out of the tunnel comes Lamar Jackson. He basically runs straight onto the field, drops in a dime to Hollywood Brown, who actually caught this one (because he had dropped an earlier good throw from Trace McSorely.) And then, you think, ‘Oh my goodness. Okay, Baker, put your helmet on. Let’s see what the Browns can do.’ And the Browns go back down the field so incredibly quickly that they left enough time for the Ravens to come back down and kick a field goal.”
