On Thursday night, the Cleveland Browns looked like a high school team taking on an NFL squad against the New York Jets for the majority of the first half. Then Baker Mayfield happened.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft finally found his way onto the professional field during the regular season - and he didn't disappoint. Tyrod Taylor got the start at QB, but struggled to find a rhythm behind a terrible offensive line.

Once Mayfield came in the Browns settled down and battled back for a 21-17 win after falling down 14-0 early. After the win, Mayfield's former coach at Oklahoma, Lincoln Riley, sent out a tweet that quickly went viral.

Check it out.

In case you missed it, Baker planted the flag at Ohio Stadium after taking down the Ohio State Buckeyes in 2017. Now, he's winning games for the Cleveland Browns.

Will Hue Jackson hand Baker the keys for the rest of the season?
