Mayfield went 21/37 for 247 yards, two touchdowns and had two interceptions in the win. Cleveland is now 4-1 on the season.
Mayfield’s status is something to watch. Case Keenum is the Browns’ backup quarterback in case Mayfield needs to miss any time, though it doesn’t sound like the Cleveland starter plans to miss any action.
