A long time supporter of the Browns franchise, LeBron James and the rest of the fan base are being treated to what has been the team’s most successful season since the organization was restarted in 1999.
Winning what had been back-and-forth game between the AFC North division rivals, the Browns were keyed by a resurgent Mayfield that had only last week been forced to the bench in a 38-7 blowout against the Pittsburgh Steelers. In the said Week 6 contest, the third-year quarterback gave up two interceptions and was sacked four times.
Now, in Week 7 against the Bengals, he threw five touchdowns, even completing 21 straight passes at one point to get the Browns back on track for a potential postseason berth.
For what it’s worth, the touchdown reception was the first career score for Peoples-Jones, a sixth-round pick in this year’s NFL draft. With Cleveland already boasting blue-chip talent in their receiving corp, in Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry, the Bengals had little recourse in preventing Peoples-Jones from getting position downfield and reeling in the throw.
