Cleveland Browns dare to dream as ‘ice cold’ Baker Mayfield comes of age

Baker Mayfield and Myles Garrett celebrate against the Pittsburgh Steelers

“I don’t think we can hang our hat on winning one play-off game, thinking, ‘we’re good now,’ because we’re not. In our mind we have three more games. I don’t think we can relax. We want more than that.”

Stefanski will hope to lean on his bruising run game, led by the hulking Nick Chubb, boosted by the returning Joel Bitonio, a vital piece is the fortress Cleveland has built in front of Mayfield this season.

But it would be naive to expect the Kansas City Chiefs to keep the fireworks in the box for long, which will inevitably task Mayfield with trading blows and taking inspiration from that famous college game four years ago where he felt the need “to score on every single drive in the second half to win that game”.

Patrick Mahomes has rested during week 17 and the bye

Despite being in awe of Mahomes’ “unbelievable arm strength”, Mayfield is focusing on the details to ensure the Browns pull off a shock and advance to Championship weekend.

“I would say it’s about everybody being on the same page and just doing their job, and that makes everybody’s job easier,” Mayfield says.

“Don’t try and do too much. You stick within the plan, do the little details right and stay efficient. The guys up front and the skill guys around me have made my job extremely easy.”

One suspects no matter what, his job will not be comfortable on Sunday, even if his teammates “do their job.” But if Mayfield can pull this off, everybody will start to believe in the Browns.
