Stats and Facts: 10 things to know about the Browns at the bye

1. Baker Mayfield woke up feeling dangerous last Sunday and posted a 151.3 quarterback rating in the Browns’ 28-16 win over the Falcons.

2. Mayfield‘s 151.3 rating is the highest in the storied history of the NFL for a rookie attempting at least 20 passes in a game.

3. “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins was the hit single off the “Top Gun” soundtrack and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard charts for the week of July 26, 1986. Mayfield wouldn’t be born for almost nine years after “Danger Zone” was at the top of the charts.

4. Mayfield completed 17 of his 20 passes for 216 yards and three touchdowns against Atlanta, pulling off the rare feat of having the same number of touchdown passes as incompletions.

5. Browns rookie RB Nick Chubb won the Fed Ex Ground Player of the Week after rushing for 176 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. Chubb also added three catches for 33 yards and the first receiving touchdown of his career.

6. Chubb’s touchdown run was a 92-yard scamper, which is now the longest run in Cleveland Browns history.

7. "Hasta la vista, Baby" 

8. Chubb and Duke Johnson have combined for six touchdowns over the last two weeks. That scoring explosion coincides with the two games called by Browns current offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens, who was the team’s running backs coach for the first half of the season.

9. Mayfield, Chubb and cornerback Denzel Ward have combined to win the NFL’s Pepsi Rookie of the Week in six of the first nine weeks of the year, a feat never before accomplished by one team’s rookies through the first nine weeks of the year.

10. The Saints rookie tandem of Alvin Kamara (seven) and Marshon Lattimore (four) gave New Orleans a Rookie of the Week winner in a record 11 of the 17 weeks in 2017, including winning the award in nine of the final 10 weeks of the season. The Browns need one of their rookies to capture the award in six of the next seven games to set the new mark of 12 wins in a season for a single franchise.
