Saturday Dawg Chow: Browns news (10/13/18)

More of the latest Browns news and notes from around the web in a Saturday dose of the Daily Dawg Chow.

NFL: New York Jets at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Cleveland Browns:

  • Key for Browns: Worst to first in takeaways, turnover ratio (ESPN) - The Cleveland Browns’ turnover frenzy has not happened by accident, but it has had a huge impact on the team winning two of its first five games. Through five games, the Browns lead the NFL with 15 takeaways, the most by a Browns team in the first five games since 1989. More important, they lead the NFL in turnover ratio at plus-eight.
  • Browns have a franchise-saving star in Baker Mayfield (Bleacher Report) - Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield had one of his best moments of the season last week, and it didn’t show up on the stat sheet. Mayfield was playing Baltimore, and the Ravens were attempting to get under his skin with some of the usual tricks. There was the occasional trash talk. The extra shove after he threw a pass. All were designed to irritate the rookie QB and knock him out of any potential comfort zone. There was a problem: It didn’t work.
