Get to Know: Cleveland Browns
Rookies restructuring Browns offense: The last time Carolina faced Cleveland, the Panthers walked away with a 17-13 win at home. The Browns that will take the field in Week 14 have no recollection of that last meeting in 2014, primarily because, outside of left guard Joel Bitonio, none of them were there for it.
Back in '14, quarterback Baker Mayfield sat out after transferring from Texas Tech to Oklahoma. Fast forward four years (and a Heisman) later, and Mayfield finds himself as "the guy" for a franchise that has long been without one at the most important position on the field.
Veteran Tyrod Taylor started over him the first two weeks, but when Taylor suffered a concussion in Week 3, Mayfield got his shot and didn't disappoint. With the Browns down 14-0 to the Jets, the rookie went 17-of-23 for 201 passing yards and helped set up three scoring drives to give Cleveland a 21-17 victory. Keep in mind, it was the team's first win since Week 16 in 2016. That alone should be enough to convince you that Cleveland has something in Mayfield and his non-traditional style.
