In two drives, Taylor went 5-of-5 for 99 yards, including a 36-yard TD down the seam to TE David Njoku (more on him shortly), for a ideal passer rating (158.3).

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry has been asking the Browns to try to trade for New York Giants receiver and his friend Odell Beckham Jr.


He completed four of 11 passes for 70 yards in the first half.

The Browns have said they would consider trying to get Dez Bryant but got the impression that Bryant doesn't want to play for the Browns, according to ESPN. In Tyrod's last drive of the evening, OC Todd Haley figured it was a good time to push the pace and practice their hurry-up offense. He finished the night 5-5 for 99 yards and a touchdown, sporting a 158.3 passer rating. After getting those first drive jitters out, Mayfield imposed his will on the Giants in this drive.


Mayfield was up next and, following a three-and-out, settled in on his second series, finding Rashard Higgins with a pretty back-shoulder throw on the sideline for a 26-yard gain. He converted another third down with his legs, then a 4th & 2 in the red zone by scrambling.

Even tight end Evan Engram, the Giants" first-rounder in "17 who has been much maligned as a run blocker, held his own on the play, teaming with second tight end Rhett Ellison to support Omameh. Mayfield hit fourth-round pick Antonio Callaway over the middle for a 54-yard touchdown in the third quarter.


The Giants decision to take running back Saquon Barkley with the second pick in the draft will be debated for years. He also exited the game as the Browns' leading rusher, with 13 yards on 3 carries.
