E-mail them into big plays http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/baker-mayfield-jersey , led Cleveland to its highest-scoring game in more than a decade and showed why the Browns thought highly enough of him to make him the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft.Mayfield's first NFL start would have gone down as a major success if not for some untimely turnovers and a replay review that allowed the Oakland Raiders to rally for the late tying score before winning in overtime.Instead, it ended up like so many other games for the hapless Browns since they returned to the NFL in 1999.Mayfield threw for 295 yards and two touchdowns, but also committed four turnovers that helped the Raiders deny the Browns their first back-to-back wins in four years with a 45-42 overtime victory on Sunday."We turned the ball over too many times, gave them a chance," Mayfield said. "In this league, when you turn the ball over like we did today, like I did, you're not going to win those games. We saw the end result of that."Mayfield put the Browns (1-2-1) in an early hole when his pass on the second drive of the game deflected off receiver Antonio Callaway's hands and went right to Gareon Conley , who returned the interception 36 yards for a touchdown.Then he showed the big-play ability that helped him win the Heisman Trophy at Oklahoma, become the No. 1 pick and convince the Browns to put him in far earlier in the season than originally planned.He got his first career TD on a 49-yard pass to Darren Fells in the second quarter and put Cleveland up 28-14 with a 2-yard strike to Jarvis Landry in the third.But then Mayfield got stripped on a sack by Maurice Hurst and fumbled a snap from JC Tretter to set up two short TD drives for the Raiders, who then built a 34-28 lead early in the fourth quarter."He's going to learn," coach Hue Jackson said. "He's got football intelligence. Today, as he goes through it, he'll understand, and we've talked about it a little bit, just how important those things are. You got to be team-protecting in certain situations, but you don't want to rein him in, because I like the things he's doing."Mayfield then showed his resiliency Authentic Baker Mayfield Jersey , connecting on a 49-yard pass to Callaway that set up Carlos Hyde's go-ahead 1-yard run. Nick Chubb added a 41-yard TD run and Mayfield seemed poised to become just the third of 30 Browns starting QBs to win his first start with the franchise since 1999 when the defense stopped the Raiders at the 9 with less than two minutes left.Hyde appeared to seal the game with a third-down conversion only to have it overturned on replay when the officials ruled his elbow touched the ground before he reached the marker."It had to be a heck of a review to turn that over on the third and short," Mayfield said. "I don't know. Any time you put it in somebody else's hands, it's not always going to turn out your way. You've got to control what you can control and execute better."That forced a punt and Derek Carr led the Raiders on a game-tying drive.Mayfield got the ball back at the 25 and completed two quick passes to move the ball into Oakland territory before his deep pass was intercepted by Reggie Nelson with 7 seconds left, forcing overtime.Mayfield got one drive in OT, but threw an incomplete pass on third down and never got another chance. He was unable to back up his comeback win in relief against the Jets that snapped Cleveland's 19-game winless streak last week with another victory."I feel bad for our defense," Mayfield said. "We gave the Raiders a chance to be on offense too many times. When you give an offense like that, with the players they have, so many chances, it's not going to turn out well for you."Despite the loss, there's plenty of reason for optimism around the Browns, who believe the two-decade search for a quarterback has finally ended."I love Mayfield," Raiders coach Jon Gruden said. "The way he plays, the confidence that he has. He got out of trouble and made some unbelievable throws under fire today. He has a bright future. Cleveland has their quarterback. They've been complaining about not having one for a while. It's pretty obvious they have one." Left tackle Dion Dawkins scans the Buffalo Bills locker room from the vantage point of his corner stall and sees a glimpse of a young and promising future core of a team beginning to emerge."It's just like a freshman class at college, and we all are growing as one," the second-year player said following practice Wednesday.The potential is all around him.To Dawkins' far left is rookie quarterback Josh Allen's locker. To his immediate right is rookie receiver Robert Foster's stall, while second-year receiver Zay Jones sits a little further down.And on the far side of the room, blocked from Dawkins' view, are two newly emptied lockers once occupied by receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes Greg Joseph Jersey Elite , who were cut a day earlier.Their departures are not lost on Dawkins, either. He realizes how the moves have created opportunities for other youngsters over the final four weeks of a season in which the Bills (4-8) are all but mathematically eliminated from playoff contention."Those guys know the table is wide open, so choose wisely and go hard because they could be that guy for us if they choose to," Dawkins said.Call it an audition or "evaluation," as coach Sean McDermott phrased it, the Bills are turning their attention to beyond this season in determining who merits further consideration and which players don't, such as Benjamin and Holmes.Benjamin, whose contract is about to expire, underperformed during his 13-month stint in Buffalo after the Bills acquired the 2014 first-round pick in a trade with Carolina. Holmes, signed through the end of the 2019 season, provided little value beyond being a regular on special teams."It obviously didn't work," McDermott said, referring to Benjamin, who caught 39 of the 89 passes thrown in his direction for 571 yards and two touchdowns in 18 games in Buffalo.McDermott, however, defended the Bills' philosophy behind trading a third- and seventh-round pick to acquire the 6-foot-5, 245-pound receiver who showed potential during three-plus seasons in Carolina."The important thing for us is that we continue to take swings," he said. "Some of those are going to work http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/greg-joseph-jersey , and some aren't. But the only way you get a hit is if you take a swing."Minus Benjamin, the Bills prepare to host the New York Jets (3-9) on Sunday with an offense that could feature as many as five starters with fewer than two full seasons of NFL experience. Buffalo's defense has four starters in their first or second NFL seasons.The youth movement is starting to show signs of gaining traction .Buffalo's once sputtering offense, which averaged 248 yards, 18 first downs and 10.6 points through nine games, is averaging 398 yards, 22 first downs and 27 points in its past three.Allen has combined for 391 yards passing and three touchdowns with two interceptions, and 234 yards rushing and a score in his past two games since missing four with a sprained right throwing elbow.Jones is showing signs of blossoming. He's combined for 12 catches for 160 yards and three scores in his past three games after managing just 29 catches for 299 yards and one touchdown in his first nine.Foster has 226 yards receiving and a touchdown in three games since being promoted off the practice squad.And even Isaiah McKenzie has contributed since being claimed by Buffalo after being released by Denver last month. The second-year speedster, initially projected to return punts and kickoffs, had a career-best four catches for 46 yards in a 21-17 loss to Miami last weekend.Veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams' spirits are buoyed by how he saw the youngsters perform against the Dolphins.It was a game in which Buffalo rallied from a 14-6 deficit to take a lead in the fourth quarter. It was decided when Allen's fourth-down pass landed just out of tight end Charles Clay's reach at the goal line in the final minute.Despite the loss, it instilled a belief in Williams that the Bills are on the right path."The heart they showed," Williams said, referring to the youngsters. "Obviously, the result doesn't come back the way you want it to, but they're growing up, and you feel it and you see it."NOTES: Rookie CB Taron Johnson is in jeopardy of missing the remainder of the season after having surgery to repair a nagging shoulder injury. ... The Bills still have one open roster spot, while signing WR Da'Mari Scott and T Andrew Lauderdale to their practice squad. Custom Chicago Bears Jerseys
