The Cleveland Browns have been a massive disappointment this season, and Baker Mayfield is one of the chief reasons why. The second-year quarterback has struggled immensely.
Mayfield’s frustrations came to a head this week when he walked off from a media session after a tense exchange with reporter Tony Grossi. All in all, not what you want to have happen going into a pivotal game against Denver on Sunday.
Don’t expect any sympathy from opponents for Mayfield though, especially not from Broncos’ star Von Miller. Asked today if he knows what’s been going on with Mayfield, Miller didn’t hold back.
““I don’t know what it is. And I don’t want to find out,” he said.

Incredibly, as bad as Cleveland’s 2-5 start has been, they aren’t out of the playoff race. All of their last nine games are very winnable, starting Sunday in Denver.
The Browns probably need a 7-2 finish though to have a shot at a Wild Card, so they have little margin for error. That’s what happens when you spend the first half of the season being largely dysfunctional.
We’ll see if Mayfield and his team can snap out of their collective funk this weekend.
