What Baker Mayfield had to say after losing to the Patriots

Browns center JC Tretter snapped the ball to Baker Mayfield.

Mayfield bent his legs and gently tossed the ball no more than two yards — right into the arms of Patriots defensive tackle Lawrence Guy. The first-quarter blunder marked Cleveland’s third straight drive that ended in a turnover, following back-to-back fumbles by running back Nick Chubb.

“There were two fumbles and one interception, and they happened: fumble, fumble, interception,” Mayfield said bluntly when asked after the game about the horrific sequence.

Mayfield highlighted New England’s “sound defense” and ability to capitalize on mistakes, excusing Chubb of the blame.
