1. Since Week 9, Baker Mayfield’s quarterback rating of 129.5 is second-best in the entire NFL behind only Drew Brees (142.1).
2. Mayfield completed 19-of-27 passes for 258 yards and four touchdowns against the Bengals on Sunday, which marked only the 6th time in NFL history a rookie quarterback had thrown for 250 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.
3.The other five rookies to accomplish the feat are Deshaun Watson, Marcus Mariota, Marc Bulger, Greg Cook and Fran Tarkenton.
4. Mayfield has now thrown for multiple touchdowns in five straight starts and is the only rookie in the history of the Cleveland Browns to do so. The last Browns quarterback to throw for multiple scores in five straight games was Vinny Testaverde in the 1994-95 season.
5. Mayfield guided the offense to four touchdowns and 28 points in the first half Sunday, which is the highest first half point total for the Browns since they scored 31 at Indianapolis back in 1991.
6. Part of Mayfield’s success can be attributed to the protection he is receiving up front. The Browns have not allowed a sack in back-to-back games after shutting out the Cincinnati defense, something that has not happened in Cleveland since the 2007 season.
7. The Texans have produced at least five sacks in each of their last two games, so one streak is most certainly coming to an end.
8. Myles Garrett recorded another sack Sunday, giving him 10 on the season. That’s tied for the most in Browns history through the first 12 games.
9. The Browns franchise record for sacks in a season is the 14 Reggie Camp racked up in the 1984 season.
10. Since Freddie Kitchens took over the play-calling duties, the Browns have turned all 10 of their red zone possessions into touchdowns, which is the best red zone touchdown rate in the league (100 percent).
