Video: Browns’ Baker Mayfield, Jarvis Landry connect for TD to go up two scores vs. the Steelers
The much-maligned Cleveland Browns offense is rolling early on Thursday Night Football. With a hair under 10 minutes left in their home tilt with the Pittsburgh Steelers, quarterback Baker Mayfield found wide receiver Jarvis Landry open for a one-yard touchdown. The score, after PAT, put Cleveland up 14-10.
Watch below. Mayfield finds Landry wide-open on the left side of the end zone for his 10th touchdown toss of the season. The Steelers appear to have busted coverage.

The play to gain the touchdown is a common one, especially in the Browns’ playbook: mesh. The concept calls for two shallow crosser routes, a corner route and a check-down to the flat run by the running back. Cleveland ran the mesh concept out of their goal-line package, tricking the Steelers into lining up for the run, but actually calling a pass.
Landry’s touchdown reception is his third of the season.
