Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is now six games into his second season in the NFL. Surely, the former No. 1 overall pick was imaging a different start to the year.
The Browns fell to 2-4 on the season today. Cleveland lost to Seattle, 32-28, in fairly heartbreaking fashion.
Mayfield was 22 of 37 on the game, throwing for 249 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. The final pick was the costly one.
This pass turned into an interception, allowing the Seahawks to run out the clock with an ensuing eight-play drive.

Mayfield was not at fault for that interception, of course, but that doesn’t matter. What does matter is the Browns are now 2-4 on the season, looking far from the Super Bowl contending squad many expected to see in Cleveland.
The former Oklahoma quarterback now has 11 interceptions on the season, though. His stats through six games are pretty embarrassing.
- 1,532 passing yards
- 5 touchdowns
- 11 interceptions
- 58 percent completion

The Browns have time to make a push for the playoffs, as Cleveland is two games back of first place in the AFC North. The schedule lightens up a bit, too – but not immediately.
Cleveland is set to play at New England in two weeks. Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. E.T. on CBS on Oct. 27.
