Hue Jackson will wait until Monday to announce his starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns next game against the Oakland Raiders.

"Just the mentality, the attitude that he has always approached it since he stepped into this building", Landry said. "I know everybody wants to think that, we've had that in our back pocket for awhile". That is why he was the first pick. You saw it tonight first hand. The victory was made all the bit sweeter by an inspirational debut by quarterback Baker Mayfield. "It is awesome to be a part of it".

When the clock hit triple zeros, it may have seemed like a dream for Browns fans to see their team win a game for the first time in 635 days.

Cleveland Police also got caught up in the moment, but did issue a polite warning to the fans.

Mayfield played the final two minutes of the second quarter and the second half, and completed 17-of-23 for 201 yards.

As for ending a drive in a touchdown, that took a while. Mayfield ran wide to the end zone, turned - and gathered in a pass from Jarvis Landry. Seven of those receptions came with Mayfield throwing to him.

The team later said of the game's unsolicited mascot, "Shout out to this guy".
