Lamar Jackson clocked his highest speed in the NFL with his touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles but there was an aspect of disappointment in the play for the Baltimore Ravens quarterback.

Reigning MVP Jackson sprinted at 21 miles per hour on his 37-yard TD run in the third quarter of the Ravens' narrow 30-28 victory at Lincoln Financial Field in Week 6.

The third-year signal caller had 108 yards rushing on nine carries, in addition to passing for 186 yards and one touchdown. It was the eighth time in his NFL career – including the postseason – that he has reached triple figures in both categories in the same game, tying the record held by Michael Vick.

Jackson turned back to check if he was going to be caught when he stepped inside the 20, which is something he admitted he should not have done.

Asked what it feels like when you turn around and realise no one will stop you, he said: "I don't like what you just said there because usually when I think I'm not gonna get caught and I start slowing down, people always give extra effort and I'm getting slapped on the foot and stumbling and no touchdown. So, I've got to do better.

"I'm not going to look back next time, just keep my eyes forward and get all the way to the end zone because I don't need no mishaps."

On the speed he displayed, Jackson added: "Well, I slowed down. I just had to burst. A lot of guys did a great job with their assignments, I just had to be ready and do the rest. My number was called and I'm gonna try to finish it."

Jackson's third-quarter score put the Ravens up 24-6, but Carson Went found Jason Croom and Travis Fulgham for touchdowns that were followed by two-point conversions.

Wentz scored a one-yard touchdown inside the final two minutes, but Matthew Judon and L.J. Fort stopped him and Boston Scott running in a game-tying two-point conversion.

"I was thinking 'read zone' because they had run it multiple times earlier," said former Eagles linebacker Fort.

"Me and Judon were able to make the stop. You always want to make big plays, especially coming from a team that let you go. So, that was a great feeling, and to be able to get the closer was the cherry on top."

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. dashed the Dallas Cowboys' comeback hopes in Week 4, while the Seattle Seahawks improved to 4-0. 

Rookie quarterback Joe Burrow claimed his first win as the Cincinnati Bengals overcame the Jacksonville Jaguars 33-25, while the Carolina Panthers caused an upset, beating the Arizona Cardinals 31-21. 

Both the New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens rebounded from Week 3 reverses, but Los Angeles Chargers passer Justin Herbert came up short as he became the latest rookie QB to lose to a team led by Tom Brady. 

Elsewhere, in a battle between two previously winless teams, it was the Minnesota Vikings who triumphed, dropping the Houston Texans to 0-4.

 

BECKHAM OUTSHINES DAK WITH BIG DAY

Dallas knew all about Beckham's brilliance - it was against the Cowboys when he performed his astonishing one-handed touchdown grab as a rookie with the New York Giants - yet they failed to stop Cleveland's receiver grabbing two first-half touchdowns - one thrown by fellow wideout Jarvis Landry. 

The Browns were 41-14 up by the end of the third quarter but the Cowboys, who rallied from 29-10 down to beat the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2, came roaring back thanks to Dak Prescott, who had 502 passing yards and four touchdown throws. 

However, Beckham scored on a 50-yard end-around run to seal Cleveland's 49-38 win, with Dallas' nemesis going off for 154 yards from scrimmage and three scores.

SEAHAWKS SURVIVE MIAMI TEST

Seven teams began Week 4 with a perfect 3-0 record and Seattle became the first to go 4-0, securing a 31-23 win over the Miami Dolphins. 

Russell Wilson threw for 360 yards and two touchdowns - giving him 16 already for the season - while running back Chris Carson also found the end zone twice and the Seahawks defense picked off a couple of Ryan Fitzpatrick passes. 

Fellow preseason Super Bowl favourites New Orleans and Baltimore got back on track, the Saints triumphing 35-29 over the Lions while the Ravens defeated the Washington Football Team 31-17, during which Lamar Jackson becoming the quickest in NFL history to reach 5,000 career passing yards and 2,000 yards rushing.

BURROW GETS FIRST W, HERBERT COMES CLOSE TO UPSTAGING BRADY

First overall pick Burrow led the Bengals to their first victory of the 2020 campaign, though it was Joe Mixon's 181 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns that really made the difference against the Jaguars. 

Herbert, another opening-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, looked on course for his maiden NFL win too, the Chargers racing into a 24-7 lead thanks in part to a Brady pick-six. 

However, Brady, whose teams had won their previous 10 straight games against rookie QBs, would end the high-scoring contest with five touchdown passes, Tampa Bay triumphing 38-31. 

Week 4 scores:

Seattle Seahawks 31-23 Miami Dolphins
Cincinnati Bengals 33-25 Jacksonville Jaguars
Minnesota Vikings 31-23 Houston Texans
Cleveland Browns 49-38 Dallas Cowboys
Baltimore Ravens 31-17 Washington Football Team
New Orleans Saints 35-29 Detroit Lions
Carolina Panthers 31-21 Arizona Cardinals
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 38-31 Los Angeles Chargers

Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson will do battle on Monday Night Football in Week 3 as the Kansas City Chiefs face the Baltimore Ravens.

Mahomes, the Super Bowl LIV MVP and 2018 season NFL MVP, and fellow quarterback Jackson, the 2019 season's NFL MVP, will hope to get the W that moves their team to 3-0.

That clash, one of a number of enticing Week 3 matchups, will provide an early indication of which franchise might be in the best shape to be the AFC's Super Bowl LV representative too.

Here, using Stats Perform data, we break down that game and the other top Week 3 showdowns.

 

FEATURE GAME

Chiefs at Ravens - Monday, 8.15pm (All times Eastern)

- There have been 13 games featuring the reigning and previous NFL MVPs starting against each other at the quarterback position (including playoffs). The reigning MVP has led his team to victory in eight of the last 10 such matchups, and is 8-5 overall.

- Mahomes hooked up with Tyreek Hill for a 54-yard touchdown in the win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2. That was Mahomes' 11th career touchdown pass of 50-plus yards (most in the NFL since 2018). The Ravens as a team have only had nine such touchdowns since 2015, four coming from the arm of Jackson.

- The Chiefs are 6-3 against the Ravens, including wins in each of the three most recent matchups and they have a 4-1 record in Baltimore.

OTHER KEY GAMES

Texans at Steelers - Sunday, 1pm

- The Steelers are 2-0 for the seventh time since 2000. They made the playoffs in each of the previous six seasons, reaching three Super Bowls and winning two titles. Pittsburgh's last 3-0 start was in 2010, when the Steelers made their last trip to the Super Bowl.

Raiders at Patriots - Sunday, 1pm

- New England are tied for ninth in the NFL in rushing yards per game (142.0) and are eighth in passing offense (268.5 yards per game). They are one of three teams in the league's top 10 in both categories, joining the Green Bay Packers and Los Angeles Rams. In Sunday's loss at the Seattle Seahawks, Cam Newton passed for 397 yards, including 312 in the second half.

Rams at Bills - Sunday, 1pm

- Buffalo are attempting to start 3-0 for a second straight season, a feat they have accomplished only twice previously in franchise history (1964-65, 1991-92). The Bills have won 10 straight games since December 2018 when scoring 20 or more points, the longest active streak in the NFL. 

Cowboys at Seahawks - Sunday, 4.15pm 

- Dak Prescott enters this weekend with 99 career touchdown passes in 66 career games. With another touchdown pass on Sunday, Prescott would be the fastest Cowboy to reach 100 TD passes – Tony Romo currently holds the record at 79 games.

Packers at Saints - Sunday, 8.20pm

- Since 2018, Davante Adams - who could miss this game through injury - has accounted for 27.8 per cent of Green Bay's receiving yards, the fifth-highest mark in the NFL. The player with the highest percentage during this span is Saints star Michael Thomas (34.5 per cent), who is out this week with an ankle injury.

ELSEWHERE...

Titans at Vikings - Sunday, 1pm

- Ryan Tannehill threw for four touchdowns and no interceptions in the win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, extending his streak of regular season games with multiple touchdown passes to a franchise-record nine games. Tannehill has a 118.1 passer rating since joining Tennessee in 2019, the best mark in the NFL over that span (minimum 250 attempts).

Buccaneers at Broncos - Sunday, 4.25pm

- Melvin Gordon has tallied 148 rushing yards on 34 attempts this season, 124 more than the Broncos' next-leading rusher (Phillip Lindsay, 24). Gordon also has five receptions and has accounted for 41.9 per cent of the Broncos' touches this season, fifth highest in the NFL.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes heaped praise on Baltimore Ravens counterpart Lamar Jackson ahead of Monday's blockbuster NFL showdown.

It will be a battle of two former MVPs and two of the hottest teams in the league when Jackson's Ravens host Mahomes and the Chiefs in Baltimore.

The Ravens and Super Bowl champions the Chiefs are both 2-0 heading into Week 3 amid plenty of hype as reigning MVP Jackson and 2018 Most Valuable Player Mahomes go head-to-head.

Mahomes – the Super Bowl LIV MVP – hailed Jackson, telling reporters on Thursday: "He can make all the throws; he can run with the ball; he can really do it all.

"It's always fun to watch guys like that -- that work hard, put in the work, and they're able to go out there and have success on the field.

"And then as far as our relationship, talking and stuff like that -- we kinda have the same endorsements with Oakley and EA Sports, and so we've seen each other through that.

"Then when you play this quarterback position, there's kinda like a group; it's a tight group where you kinda shoot ideas off each other and stuff like that. So he's a great player, and I look forward to the contest this week."

"It's a little different 'cause when you're on offense, you're never gonna go face-to-face; you never get to go straight-up against Lamar, but you know that he's gonna go out there and put up points," added Mahomes.

"So you just have to trust in your defense that they're gonna make stops when they're needed, they're gonna find ways to do whatever they can to stop all the great stuff that he does. And then as an offense, you're facing a great defense, and so you're gonna have find ways to put up points on the board if you want to get the win."

 

Baltimore Ravens star Lamar Jackson said facing Patrick Mahomes and Super Bowl champions the Kansas City Chiefs is "just like any other game" as he downplayed the blockbuster NFL clash.

It will be a battle of two former MVPs and two of the hottest teams in the NFL when the Ravens host the Chiefs in Baltimore on Monday.

The Ravens, who lost in the divisional playoffs last season having posted a 14-2 record, and the Chiefs are both 2-0 heading into Week 3.

But speaking to reporters on Thursday amid plenty of hype regarding the showdown, Ravens quarterback and reigning MVP Jackson said: "It's just like any other game."

The Ravens will come up against former MVP and Super Bowl MVP Mahomes – who finished 27 of 47 for 302 passing yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 54 yards in Kansas City's 23-20 overtime win over the Los Angeles Chargers last week.

"I don't have to focus on Mahomes," Jackson said. "I got to focus on their defense. I got focus on scoring. I got to focus on my job and making my offense do our thing. But my defense has to worry about him."

The Ravens overcame a slow start to extend their regular-season winning streak to 14 games – the longest run since the Carolina Panthers reeled off 18 successive victories in 2014-15 – after topping the Houston Texans 33-16.

Jackson threw for 204 yards and a touchdown, while he rushed for 54 yards.

The Ravens and Chiefs were on track to meet in the AFC Championship game last season before Baltimore were upstaged by the Tennessee Titans as Kansas City went on to defeat the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.

Asked if the Ravens eventually need to beat the Chiefs, Jackson said: "Yeah, eventually. And they're in our way right now, so that's our goal."

Two days after asserting he was "without a doubt" the NFL's best quarterback, Russell Wilson backed up his big words with a big primetime performance.

The New England Patriots could not prevent 'Mr Unlimited' from throwing a quintet of touchdown passes, to five different receivers, before a goal-line stand from the Seattle Seahawks defense at the death earned Pete Carroll's team a 35-30 victory.

Pats head coach Bill Belichick, who doesn't throw praise around lightly, had suggested in the build-up that Wilson - a man who has never had an MVP vote in his eight-and-a-bit-year career - was the league's finest QB, but do the numbers back that up? 

Using Stats Perform data, we took a look at how Wilson's regular season and postseason numbers compare to the NFL's other leading passers since Week 11 of 2018, when reigning MVP Lamar Jackson made his first start.

 

PASSER RATING - 111.0 (1st)

Only seven QBs have posted a combined passer rating above 100 in this time frame and Wilson leads a septet of Ryan Tannehill, Drew Brees, Patrick Mahomes, Jackson, Jimmy Garoppolo and Dak Prescott. Wilson has played 28 games - the most of that group - but has attempted fewer throws (847) than both Prescott (1,000) and Mahomes (982). 

PASSING YARDAGE - 7,036 (7th)

Before the Seahawks caved in to the 'Let Russ Cook' movement in 2020, a rush-orientated offense meant he was simply not afforded as many opportunities to shine as his peers. Wilson is 10th in attempts - 198 behind leader Tom Brady (1,045), though they have played the same amount of games. It is therefore impressive that he ranks seventh in yardage, even if he is well behind leader Prescott (8,065 yards).

YARDS-PER-ATTEMPT - 8.31 (1st)

What Wilson does with those throws is a far better reflection of his talent. There is no better deep-ball thrower in the NFL than Wilson - though Mahomes' Sunday touchdown bomb to Tyreek Hill might give his case some credence - and it is no surprise to see Wilson top the yards-per-attempt list.

PASSING PLAYS OF 25-PLUS YARDS - 66 (3rd)

That big arm naturally leads to big plays - and Wilson has had 66 completions of at least 25 yards in this time frame. Only Mahomes (71) and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston (68) - the very epitome of boom or bust - have more such plays.

TOUCHDOWNS - 57 (2nd) and TOUCHDOWN PERCENTAGE - 6.7% (3rd)

Mahomes (63) and Wilson are way ahead of the rest in touchdown passes thrown but the Seahawks QB shades the 2018 MVP when it comes to how many of their attempts end with TDs (6.7 per cent to 6.4 per cent). Wilson trails the uber-efficient Tannehill (7.5 per cent) and Jackson (6.9 per cent) in that category.

INTERCEPTION PERCENTAGE - 0.9% (2nd)

Not turning the ball over is another important part of being a QB and Wilson is as safe as they come on that front. Only Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers - arguably the best ever when it comes to taking care of the football - has a better interception percentage (0.7 per cent), with Wilson tossing just eight picks on 847 attempts.

COMPLETION PERCENTAGE - 66.9% (10th)

A quick look at those above Wilson here - Derek Carr, Nick Foles, Teddy Bridgewater - shows this stat is not as important when it comes to determining who is the NFL's best. What is more illuminating is that, again, he has a better figure than Mahomes (64.9 per cent) and Jackson (63.2 per cent).

Consider too that only Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans has had more sacks (98) than Wilson (82), and you realise that the Seattle superstar has been doing all this without a stout offensive line.

Belichick isn't often wrong, and he was probably right when he said of Wilson "I don't really see anyone better than this player".

Lamar Jackson is encouraged by what he has seen from Dez Bryant on social media amid reports the former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver is in Baltimore for a tryout with the Ravens.

Bryant, a three-time Pro Bowler who led the NFL in receiving touchdowns in 2014, has not played a snap since the 2017 season.

He signed with the New Orleans Saints in November 2018 but suffered a torn Achilles in practice after just two days with the team.

The 31-year-old said this month on Twitter that he just wants "a chance" and it appears league MVP Jackson would have no issue with the Ravens handing him that opportunity.

"We've got a lot of great receivers on the team right now," Jackson said on Tuesday.

"It's up to the front office. I've been seeing Dez Bryant on Instagram and stuff like that, running his routes, competing against cornerbacks.

"He's looking pretty good on social media. If the front office likes him, we'll have to see when he gets here."

The Ravens are inexperienced at the receiver position. They drafted Marquise Brown in the first round and Miles Boykin in the third round of last year's draft and added the third-round selection of Devin Duvernay and the sixth-round pick of James Proche in 2020.

Jackson has been impressed with the effort that group is showing to this point in training camp.

"They're workaholics right now," Jackson added. "It's just the second day. We're just going to have to keep stacking."

The Baltimore Ravens would benefit from the signing of Antonio Brown, according to his cousin Marquise 'Hollywood' Brown.

The older Brown, 32, was released by the New England Patriots in September last year amid sexual assault allegations he has denied.

He has now been banned for eight games due to "multiple violations of the NFL's personal conduct policy".

The wide receiver has been linked with a host of teams ahead of the new season, though, and worked out with both his cousin and Ravens team-mate Lamar Jackson in the offseason.

Star quarterback Jackson has spoken of his hope of bringing Brown to Baltimore in a move that the team's second-year receiver - a first-round pick in 2019 - would also welcome.

"AB, he's a guy that's going to bring the best out of you," Hollywood Brown told reporters.

"I feel like he would fit in this locker room. He's a guy that's competitive and he's going to go out there and give 100 per cent.

"Seeing stuff like that is going to make other guys want to do the same."

Former Pittsburgh Steelers star Brown, who had a controversial stint at the Oakland Raiders last year without playing, is a seven-time Pro Bowler.

His 23-year-old relative scored seven receiving touchdowns for the Ravens in a rookie 2019 season, although Baltimore were again beaten in the playoffs.

Lamar Jackson is "tired of going home" in the NFL playoffs and wants to make sure the Baltimore Ravens do not fall short again in 2020.

Ravens quarterback Jackson won the MVP award last season after a spectacular year that saw him lead Baltimore to a league-best 14-2 record.

However, a year after the Ravens were undone by the Los Angeles Chargers in the postseason, Baltimore suffered a shock 28-12 loss to the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round.

Jackson received the MVP award the night before Super Bowl LIV in Miami but told NBC Sports' Peter King of that ceremony: "I'd rather have made the speech on video.

"Like, 'Sorry I couldn't be there.' But, I had to be there. I really didn't want to be on that stage."

On the playoffs, he added: "I think about it a lot, to be honest with you. That's where I wanna be.

"That's when everything gets... crucial. It's tough. I remember [three-time Super Bowl winner] LeGarrette Blount DM'd me on Instagram.

"He was like, you know, playoffs is different from regular season. I'm like, nah. But it is, because it's win or go home. And I'm tired of going home.

"I just can't wait to get back in that same spot and perform at a whole 'nother level.

"I just want to get back to that situation so I can perform different.

"Just put it on my shoulders and go from there. I gotta fight to get back to that situation. It's gonna be a different result this time."

Lamar Jackson is still hoping the Baltimore Ravens sign star wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Brown, 32, was released by the New England Patriots in September last year amid sexual assault allegations he has denied.

Jackson worked out with Brown in April, and remains hopeful the Ravens will sign the seven-time Pro Bowler.

"I was hoping we would get him. I'm still hoping – a little bit," the Ravens quarterback told reporters on Wednesday.

"Around us, he was a great guy. You don't really see anything going on at all. He's a cool, down-to-earth guy and he's passionate about the sport of football.

"When he was working, you could tell, this man, he's going to go 24/7. And after the workout, he still went and lifted. He already – prior to the workout – he lifted.

"We go out there and go to throwing routes, after that, guys went and lifted some more. I'm like, 'Man, this guy, there's no quitting with him.' That's the type of guy we need in our locker room. And I feel like the locker room here is different from any other locker room. It's like a brotherhood going on. It's none of that outside noise; it's strictly inside.

"We worry about each other; we worry about what we have going on. We want to win, and I can just tell in him that he wants to win. He wants to play ball."

The Ravens are scheduled to begin their NFL season against the Cleveland Browns on September 13.

Lamar Jackson's focus is on winning the Super Bowl before he considers negotiating for a contract to rival that given to Patrick Mahomes.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Jackson followed Mahomes in winning the MVP award in his second season in the NFL in 2019.

But it was the Kansas City Chiefs superstar who was celebrating come the end of the year after leading his team to a Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Miami.

Mahomes was subsequently rewarded with a record 10-year extension worth $503million, the largest in North American professional sports history.

Jackson would appear likely to be set for similarly lucrative improved terms, but he insists he first must prove himself and deliver a ring.

"My reaction is that I've just got to win a Super Bowl," Jackson told reporters. "I don't really focus on what he has going on, because I've still got to prove myself.

"When that time comes, we can negotiate after a Super Bowl. But until then, I'm focused on winning right now."

The Ravens fell to a surprise loss to the Tennessee Titans in the playoffs, having been beaten by the Los Angeles Chargers the previous year, leaving Jackson still waiting on a first postseason win.

There is certainly no complacency heading into the new season, however, as the 23-year-old refuses to look beyond Baltimore's season opener against the Cleveland Browns.

"I've just to go out there and do my job, go out there and win games, and make it to the playoffs," he said. "Our job is to focus on the Cleveland Browns right now.

"I can't really dwell on the playoffs, because those games were my rookie season, where people didn't even expect us to go to the playoffs at all, and last year, where none of us expected to lose.

"They [the Titans] came out and played well. We didn't.

"But now we've just got to focus on the Cleveland Browns. When we get back to the playoffs, we'll go from there."

Patrick Mahomes has signed a sensational 10-year contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs.

The quarterback agreed a deal reportedly worth $503million with the Super Bowl champions, with $477m in guaranteed mechanisms, keeping him tied to the franchise through the 2031 season, when he will be 35.

The NFL MVP in 2018 and Super Bowl MVP in 2019, Mahomes was always expected to reset the QB market when he signed a new deal this offseason.

But for him to sign the richest contract in North American professional sports history on such a long contract was a huge development.

While it will likely see him sit top of the league's salary chart for many years to come, his new deal would have been music to the ears for some of the other QBs nearing a negotiating window.

Here, we look at those who also could be in line for a huge payday.
 

Deshaun Watson – Houston Texans

The man drafted just two spots below Mahomes at number 12 in 2017, Deshaun Watson, has ended years of quarterback woe in Houston.

Two consecutive AFC South crowns and a first playoff win last year have highlighted his credentials, with Mahomes and the Chiefs ultimately stopping the Texans in the divisional round in 2019.

Mahomes is second all time for yards-per-attempt among quarterbacks with at least 1,000 attempts and Watson is an impressive fifth on that list, averaging over eight YPA.

Dual threat Watson has 71 touchdowns to 29 interceptions in 38 career games, plus 1,233 yards and a further 14 scores on the ground.

The Texans are desperate to retain him and Mahomes' deal means the price-tag just went up, although the loss of number one target DeAndre Hopkins means the new season may prove to be more challenging.


Dak Prescott – Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott is in the midst of a long contract negotiation with the Dallas Cowboys which dates back to last year.

He has signed the franchise tag which is due to see him play the 2020 season on a one-year pact worth $31m, unless a long-term deal can be struck before the deadline. 

Prescott enjoyed a superb statistical season in 2019, throwing for 4,902 yards and 30 touchdowns to just 11 picks.

The 26-year-old will be eyeing similar production this year after the team retained wide receiver Amari Cooper and added CeeDee Lamb to the mix.

But whether he deserves top-tier QB money is a subject that divides opinion, as the Cowboys have only won one playoff game since he was drafted in 2016, while his career record in games decided by three points or fewer is just 7-7.
 

Lamar Jackson – Baltimore Ravens

One player who may be on a similar trajectory to Mahomes is Lamar Jackson, who has been revolutionising the QB position with his rushing ability.

He won the NFL MVP in 2019, rushing for 1,206 yards and seven touchdowns in addition to 3,127 yards, 36 touchdowns and just six picks through the air as part of an offense that is tailored to his strengths.

Having only played two seasons, he still is one year away from being eligible to receive a contract extension on his rookie deal.

After the Baltimore Ravens were shocked by the Tennessee Titans in the playoffs, Jackson will be aiming to follow the path of Mahomes in winning the Super Bowl the year after being named MVP.

If he does that, a life-changing deal surely awaits, though the standard he set last year will be very hard to repeat.
 

Baker Mayfield – Cleveland Browns

Baker Mayfield was picked atop the same 2018 draft that saw the Ravens get incredible value to land Jackson at number 32.

The Cleveland Browns QB faces a huge third season in the NFL, one which will determine whether or not he will be seen as the franchise's future.

An excellent rookie season saw him earn a 93.7 QB rating, prompting the Browns to surround him with talent including receivers Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry, plus Pro Bowl running back Nick Chubb.

But a sophomore slump saw him throw 21 picks as the team failed to live up to high expectations, slumping to 6-10, with Mayfield's QB rating dropping to 78.8.

In response, the Browns fired their head coach, bolstered a poor offensive line and assembled another impressive array of weapons around him for 2020.

Mayfield therefore has the opportunity to bounce back and earn a big contract, but if he does not produce, there will be fewer excuses available this time around.
