If you aren't aware of Baker Mayfield's favorite pre-game anthem, then you haven't been paying much attention. Ever since being drafted No. 1 overall by the Cleveland Browns a year ago, the QB been known to belt out Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight." It goes without saying that his favorite part of the tune is the drum solo, which he always personifies during his pre-game routine. However, Mayfield was deprived of his beloved tradition ahead of Monday night's showdown against the New York Jets, who brilliantly cut to another song at MetLife Stadium right before the solo.
On a night where the Jets were thoroughly embarrassed on the gridiron, we have no choice but to give a standing ovation to this troll job.
It's ingenuity didn't necessarily reflect the final box score, but it's worth pondering if it did a number on Mayfield's mindset, as he didn't enjoy a great night at MetLife.
