"It's not the only win we're going to celebrate".

Cleveland passed on taking Darnold in the draft and instead chose Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy victor from the University of Oklahoma.

One way or another, the Browns were destined to make a statement to the rest of the sports world under the bright lights of "Thursday Night Football".

While Cleveland is undoubtedly enjoying the victory, Jackson will soon have to answer a tough question - ride Mayfield, or go back to Taylor when he recovers.

Despite a touchdown taken off the scoreboard when Landry was flagged for an illegal block, Mayfield showed confidence in the young veteran receiver when he found him for a 12 yard gain that got back all of the penalty yardage and then some. "I can't tell you if he would have performed like that week 1", Jackson said.

"I have just been waiting for my moment". Then Mayfield took a pass on a trick play from Jarvis Landry to tie things up.

Isaiah Crowell is having quite a night against his former Cleveland Browns team.

Mayfield was expected to watch and learn this season, but the injury to Taylor and the rookie's impressive comeback could lead to a shakeup in Cleveland's original plan. Bud Light had planned to change out the beer with fresh beer if the Browns' losing streak continued. The second occurred on third down, and after Crowell powered his way into the end zone to give the Jets a 13-0 lead, he chose to taunt the crowd in truly disgraceful fashion.

It would seem Mayfield now has a clear grasp on the job after leading the Browns back from a 14-0 deficit when he replaced Taylor late in the first half. Coming into Thursday night's game, the team had gone 1-32-1 for Jackson, including an 0-16 finish in 2017 that resulted in fans holding a parade to celebrate their shortcomings. Some were calling it Cleveland's version of the "Philly Special" Super Bowl play, but Mayfield was on the receiving end of a touchdown in the Rose Bowl nine months ago that looked similar as well. He completed 15 of 31 passes for 169 yards but did not throw a touchdown and threw two interceptions in the game's final two minutes. A blocked punt set up Crowell's 7-yard waltz on the first play of the second quarter, and he capped the next possession with a 2-yard score.

The Browns defense produced three more turnovers.
