For the first time in 635 days, the Cleveland Browns won. Baker's arrival sparked the Browns who battled back from a 14-0 deficit to tie the New York Jets.

With the national spotlight on the Browns' game vs. the Jets on Thursday, the rookie quarterback made his NFL debut on Thursday night and he didn't disappoint. Since then, Cleveland had 19-game winless streak.

Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor has been ruled out of Thursday's matchup with the Jets with a concussion.

Running back Carlos Hyde's second 1-yard touchdown, with 2:07 remaining in the fourth quarter, put the Browns ahead for good at 21-17.

Mayfield led four scoring drives and finished the game connecting on 17 of 23 passes for 201 yards. Linebacker Joe Schobert and cornerback Terrance Mitchell intercepted Jets quarterback Sam Darnold on the next two possessions, sealing the game.

When the final seconds ticked off the clock, Cleveland fans, who had endured a 0-16 season and waited almost two years to see their Browns win, erupted in celebration.

Browns fans finally have something to look forward to as the Bud Light coolers around Cleveland open with free beer. It's no coincidence that first win was also the first time Mayfield saw the field.

The decision might not be as tough now.

Mayfield made his National Football League debut with 1:42 left in the second quarter, replacing an injured Taylor after Cleveland's starter was sacked for the third time. He completed his first two passes - a 14-yard pass to Jarvis Landry and a 17-yarder to David Njoku - to move the Browns downfield.

Cleveland's plan was to have Mayfield watch and learn behind Taylor, but the injury could change things dramatically. He has thrown five interceptions through three games. At the time of his exit, he had only completed four of his 14 passes for 19 yards. Up next for Cleveland is a trip to play the Oakland Raiders.

Mayfield shifted to the left and the ball was snapped directly to running back Duke Johnson, who ran right and gave the ball to Landry on a reverse. A turnover led them to another three points, but then Mayfield and the offense found the end zone and made it a two-point game.
