Browns QB Baker Mayfield roasted for blowing wide-open TD throw

Baker Mayfield, Browns

Shockingly, Twitter was not too kind to Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield after he somehow missed a wide-open Rashard Higgins coming over the middle for what should have been an easy touchdown.

The Browns settled for a field goal after Mayfield’s miss.

“Baker Mayfield just had the worst miss for a supposedly decent QB you will ever see. That’s horrid,” one user said.

The jokes kept on coming at Mayfield’s expense after his inexplicable incompletion in that Browns play.

Mayfield has struggled with accuracy all season, illustrated by the fact that he currently ranks 30th in completion percentage (60.8%) amongst qualified quarterbacks.

As Robby Kalland of Uproxx Sports noted, Mayfield’s inaccuracy could have something to do with his unpolished footwork, which continues to be a weakness in the former no. 1 overall pick’s game.

As Cleveland.com’s Chris Fedor pointed out, Mayfield actually had two receivers open on the play.

At the time of writing, the Browns lead the tanking Jacksonville Jaguars (1-9), 17-13, late in the second quarter. Mayfield has largely bounced back from his miscue, as he has completed 10 of 15 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns. The former Heisman Trophy winner has tossed TDs to Browns wideout Jarvis Landry and tight end Austin Hooper.

Despite Baker Mayfield’s struggles this season, the Browns have stumbled their way to a 7-3 record and look poised to make the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
