Baker Mayfield on 10th win: A notch on the belt and then move on
After Brown's head coach Kevin Stefanski lost a 47:42 thriller to the Ravens on Monday night in Week 14, he said the team wasn't interested in moral victories.
The Browns got a real win against the Giants on Sunday night, but Stefanski wasn't interested in making more of the win than he did with last week's loss. Stefanski said the team "didn't really think about" what their 10th win meant for their place in the AFC playoff picture as their focus was only on the game.
Stefanski's quarterback shares this approach. Baker Mayfield said his thoughts are on the next steps for the team rather than the results for other clubs around the conference.
"We are at the moment of the mentality that we control our own destiny," Mayfield said of the team's website. "[It's] a notch on the belt, and then on. We're not done yet."
Mayfield was 27-of-32 for 298 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday night. This was the third-best degree of completion in the history of the franchise and prompted the broad receiver Jarvis Landry to say that Mayfield is just playing "Lights out". As long as it stays that way, the Browns stand a good chance of adding notches to this belt before the season is over.
