Baker Mayfield probably isn't going to be playing in tonight's Thursday Night Football game between his Cleveland Browns and the New York Jets, but the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft seems ready to go anyway.

"Feelin’ Dangerous," Mayfield wrote on Instagram before kickoff tonight.

It's a pretty big Week 3 game for the Browns, who opened the season with a tie against the Steelers and a heartbreaking loss to the Saints. Cleveland is 0-1-1, but it was quite possible for the Browns to have started 2-0.

Mayfield and Co. will be going for the franchise's first win in more than a year tonight. The oddsmakers are actually predicting it to happen, too.

As always, there will be some fans calling for Mayfield to play at quarterback tonight. Tyrod Taylor has been solid behind center, but not good enough to dispel any of the Mayfield talk.

Mayfield will likely have some good support at tonight's game, too. His fiancee, Emily Wilkson, is certainly excited for the contest.

The quarterback posted a heartfelt message for his fiancee last week.

"Without those heels she’s about 5’6”.... On a good day. But that’s completely irrelevant, I just wanted to post this picture of us. Love this girl and doing life with her," he wrote.

Mayfield's fiancee has seemed to enjoy her time in Cleveland so far, too.

"I woke up today feeling so extremely grateful. It’s no exaggeration to say the past six months or so have been a whirlwind. From unexpectedly meeting the man of the dreams, to uprooting and moving my life from LA to Cleveland in the matter of 6 months. Quitting my job, getting engaged, buying a house, leaving my siblings, planning a wedding cross country... the list goes on. Life is so strange, and while all of this could be overwhelming, it has been SO much fun and the best adventure I could’ve asked for. I have the greatest blessing in my fiancé who I love more and more every day.... his family is everything I could’ve hoped for in in-laws...and of course, my biggest cheering section (Mom, Dad, Annie, Ben, and Sammy) still remain the glue that keeps my sanity intact and life so fun. Life is damn good....... and today, while I sipped my lemon water and coffee in my quiet new Cleveland home, I took some time to reflect and be grateful," she wrote.
