Mayfield came into the game late in the first half to replace a concussed Tyrod Taylor and completed 17 passes for 201 yards as the Browns fought back from 14-0 down.

The "Victory Fridges" and free Bud Light beer reigned supreme in Cleveland on Thursday after the Browns beat the Jets 21-17.

It took almost two years, but the Browns, led by rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield, got their first victory in 635 days Thursday night.

If Mayfield keeps it up, there's a good chance Taylor is never going to play another down for the Browns.

The beer was locked inside fridges that were opened by a master control when the Baker Mayfield-led Browns took down the Jets at home for their first victory since December 2016 - - a span of 635 days. Linebacker Joe Schobert and cornerback Terrance Mitchell intercepted Jets quarterback Sam Darnold on the next two possessions, sealing the game. "Bud Light couldn't be more thrilled for the Browns and the city of Cleveland as they savor the taste of this long awaited victory".

Taylor had a miserable game before his exit, completing only 4 of 14 passes for 19 yards while being sacked four times.

For Darnold, a promising start ended with his second loss in three games. The Browns had opportunities to win, and a team that hasn't found a way to win a game can't miss not just field goals, but extra points.

After another field goal by new Browns kicker Greg Joseph cut the deficit to eight, Hyde scored from a yard out to make it 14-12 with 47 seconds left in the third quarter.

"This [game] is definitely up there", Mayfield said, "Being the first National Football League game that I have played in".
