This is not what we expected on tonight's Thursday Night Football matchup between the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets.
The Jets got off to a hot 14-0 lead after two Isaiah Crowell rushing touchdowns and New York's defense was absolutely crushing Tyrod Taylor and the Browns offense. It was so bad, Tyrod left the game with an apparent injury and Baker Mayfield made his NFL debut.
Well, the Baker show will go on. Taylor is out for the game with a concussion.

That's a bummer for the veteran. Mayfield led the Browns on a scoring drive in his first NFL action to get the Browns on the board just before the half, so if he has a strong second-half performance, you can bet the team is going to roll with him moving forward.
And when you're doing stuff like this, it's just not going to help your cause.
Get ready to watch the two top QBs in this year's draft battle it out!
