Baker Mayfield is currently leading the Cleveland Browns against the Oakland Raiders. It's the rookie quarterback's first-career start.

The No. 1 overall pick has played pretty well, throwing for 193 yards and 2 touchdowns, adding four rushes for 10 yards.

Mayfield got pretty excited on his long touchdown pass.

Check out this celebration:

Some people might think that celebration is too much, but those who are fans of Baker absolutely love it. ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit says this is what makes Baker a star. "Loves to COMPETE!! That’s why he’s a star. Not about measurables about that big COMPETITIVE HEART!" he tweeted.

It's tough to argue with that.

The Browns are going to need a little more heart and determination down the stretch today, though. Cleveland is trailing Oakland, 34-28, in the fourth quarter.
