Cleveland Backup Quarterback Leads Browns to First Win Since 2016. Throwing a 14-yard dart to complete his first pass, Mayfield replaced an injured Tyrod Taylor and rallied the Browns from a two-touchdown deficit for a 21-17 win over the New York Jets to end Cleveland's 19-game winless streak

CLEVELAND — For the first time in six years, the Cleveland Browns have a winning record.

They want to keep it that way.

“We gotta start changing history and our legacies right now,” defensive end Myles Garrett said.

Baker Mayfield threw two touchdown passes, Nick Chubb ran for two more, Garrett had a key sack and the Browns moved over .500 for the first time since 2014 with a 34-20 win Sunday over the Washington Football Team, which lost rookie defensive end Chase Young to a groin injury.

  Joe Burrow makes 0- 2 Bengals big winners after loss to Baker Mayfield, Browns Despite what the box score said in Cleveland on Thursday night, the brighter quarterback future is in Cincinnati.That didn't make him the better, more impressive quarterback in the game. That honor belongs to Burrow, the rookie No. 1 overall pick.

The Cleveland Browns have won a game of football after 635 days. With the Jets leading 14-0 late in the second quarter, Mayfield quickly got in the groove, leading the Browns down the field for a field goal on his first drive and then adding another field goal in the third quarter.

Oh, and Mayfield also threw three interceptions in what became a laughable blowout loss and may be the most That the Browns have been bad is nothing revelatory. But their opening day record and That led Romeo Crennel to make the rare first half of the first game QB change. And then there's the

With their second straight win under first-year coach Kevin Stefanski, the Browns are 2-1 for the first time since 2011. It's also the first time they've had a winning record since Week 14 in 2014, when they were 7-6 before dropping their last three and costing Mike Pettine his job.

Cleveland had gone 90 consecutive weeks without a winning record. The Browns won just four games from 2015-17.

And while the start is notable, Stefanski downplayed its significance.

“We're just trying to get to 1-0 every week,” he said.

Young, the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft, left in the second quarter with his injury. The former Ohio State All-American had an early pressure on Mayfield, but otherwise had little impact before he went out.

Washington coach Ron Rivera didn't have a specific update on Young, who will receive more treatment and evaluation Monday. Young joined his teammates on the sideline in the second half and was animated while cheering them on.

Led by Garrett, the Browns' defence, which spent the week hearing about Young and Washington's sack-hungry front, intercepted Dwayne Haskins three times and forced two fumbles.

Garrett's strip sack and recovery midway through the fourth effectively sealed Cleveland's win. He had a similar play last week in a win over Cincinnati.

“That is really what we expect from Myles,” Stefanski said. “I know he expects it of himself. We need him to play great, and when it turns into a pass-rush game, he is built for that. You get an honest day’s work out of Myles Garrett.”

Mayfield's 3-yard TD pass to rookie tight end Harrison Bryant with 11:14 left helped the Browns shake off a horrid third quarter, when Washington (1-2) scored two TDs to take the lead.

Chubb then scored on a 20-yard run with 8:40 left to make it 31-20, the TD coming after linebacker B.J. Goodson intercepted Haskins at the Washington 35.

Chubb finished with 108 yards on 19 carries and the Browns leaned on the third-year back to wear down Washington in the fourth.

“We take pride in those 2-yard dirty runs because we know it takes a toll on the team, and eventually, we will bust one," Chubb said. "The whole game everybody kept telling me, ‘Just be patient. It is going to pop. It is going to pop.’ It worked for us.”

Haskins threw two TD passes to Dontrelle Inman, but the second-year QB continued to make mental errors and his two picks before halftime helped Cleveland open a 17-7 lead.

“My teammates did a great job trying to keep my head up knowing there were plays I wish I could have back,” said Haskins, who finished 21 of 37 for 224 yards. “I’m going to make sure I’m better and take the blame for what I did and get better from it.”

Young came into the game tied for the league lead with 2 1/2 sacks, and the Browns spent the week scheming ways to slow him down.

Without Young, Washington's defensive front lost some of its teeth and the Browns took advantage.

Chubb's 16-yard TD in the second quarter was a thing of beauty.

Mayfield set a Browns rookie record with four touchdown passes in another growing-up-fast performance, and Cleveland ended one of the NFL's longest streaks of road futility on Sunday with a 35-20 victory over the hapless Cincinnati Bengals, who lost quarterback Andy Dalton to a thumb injury.

Baker Mayfield came into Thursday night’s game with the Browns down 14–0 and their offense doing just nothing, and he played a brilliant half But apart from the sheer relief of the Browns finally getting a win , Mayfield will be what is remembered about tonight. The restless Cleveland crowd came to life

Taking a handoff and going right, Chubb cut back, made one Washington defender miss badly, ran out of another tackle and then powered his way in to make it 10-7.

WOMEN FIRST

The game marked the first time two female coaches were on the sideline with a female official on the field.

Jennifer King is on Washington’s staff, while Callie Brownson is the chief of staff for Stefanski. Sarah Thomas was the down judge.

“It’s cool and about time that there’s some gender equity in this sport,” said Rivera, who first hired King in Carolina. "Women love this game and a lot of them want to play this game and they play it. A lot of them want to coach it and they’re coaching it.

“All we’re doing is just creating opportunities for people who deserve it.”

UNITED STAND

Haskins, Young, Washington safety Landon Collins and defensive end Montez Sweat raised their fists during the national anthem. However, players on both sidelines stood throughout the playing.
