At 1-2-1, they’ve had chances in all four of their games. They have to be excited about the future with Baker Mayfield.

Hand it to Baker Mayfield: He’s fun to watch. The Browns carry an entirely different energy with No. 6 under center. Mayfield’s four giveaways hurt on Sunday, yet his resilience was equally on display. For example: His on-time, on-point throw to Antonio Callaway on a deep slant that went all the way down to the 1, setting up the touchdown to give Cleveland a fourth-quarter lead. Ultimately, it was the Browns’ coverage that got them deep-sixed. Not T.J. Carrie’s best day at the office.

The Browns should have won on Sunday, but they’ve been in every game this year and they’re going to win a few more.

Did the Browns get cheated on the reversal of what would have been a game-clinching first down? Maybe. There was not enough evidence for a reversal in my opinion, but it was a close call. Still, when you’re punting to a team with no timeouts, leading by eight points, with 1:38 to go, you still should win. Reversal or not, the Browns had plenty of chances to finish and couldn’t get it done.
