Browns QB Baker Mayfield turns to TLC as Cleveland hits 10-win mark for first time since 2007
The Cleveland Browns notched their 10th win of the season on Sunday as they defeated the New York Giants, 20-6. It was the first time in over a decade that the Browns hit the 10-win mark on the season, and this put Cleveland star quarterback Baker Mayfield in quite a jovial mood. So much so, that the 25-year-old decided to reference ’90’s all-girl pop group TLC in his post-game presser.
When asked to share his thoughts on the performance of Giants quarterback Colt McCoy, who himself put forth a noteworthy effort in a losing cause, Mayfield decided to throw in some TLC magic into his response:
“Colt’s a winner. He always has been. I grew up in Austin watching him play at Texas. He’s a winner,” Mayfield said, via Ben Axelrod of wkyc studios. “He’s going to always have whatever team he’s playing for in the game and so we just have to stay in there and realize that as long as we don’t go chasing waterfalls, we’re going to be in the game.”
For those in need of context, Baker Mayfield was referring to TLC’s megahit “Waterfalls” — arguably the most popular song of the all-female trio.
Mayfield did not stop there, however, he then went on to reference another TLC hit, “No Scrubs”:
“We don’t want no scrubs,” Mayfield said about what he thought of his own team’s performance. “We’ve got some dogs outside. We’ve got some guys that we’re very proud of.”
Two things here. First, Mayfield was clearly ecstatic with the Browns’ historic win. Secondly, it seems that there’s no stopping Mayfield from dropping all these pop culture references.
The Browns will look to get their 11th win in Week 16 against the New York Jets.
