Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield opened his NFL career with two touchdowns in Cleveland's 20-10 victory over the Giants on Thursday.
Tyrod Taylor started at quarterback for Cleveland with Mayfield coming in for the Browns' third possession. In his first drive, the Browns were forced to punt.
But Mayfield came back in his second drive to lead the Browns to a 14-play, 72-yard touchdown drive.
He showed off his running ability when he escaped a third–and–six jam to run for the first down.
Mayfield threw the 10-yard score to David Njoku. The Browns attempt at a two-point conversion pass from Mayfield to Antonio Callaway failed.
Then in the fourth quarter, Mayfield threw another touchdown pass — this time to Callaway for a 54-yard score.
Mayfield, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 draft out of Oklahoma, finished the night completing 11 out of 20 passes for 212 yards with two touchdowns.
