The Cleveland Browns got demolished Sunday afternoon by the Tennessee Titans. Will the pompous morale of QB Baker Mayfield will remain unwavering?
The Cleveland Browns aired their front office dramas during HBO's Hardknocks series before the 2018 NFL Season. Changes, more changes, and the acquisition of WR Odell Beckham Jr. from New York gave hint to the fact that Cleveland would be improved this season. It's not wise to write them off, however, they did get destroyed on their home field in the 2019 NFL season opener vs. the Tennessee Titans.
Head Coach Freddie Kitchens named 2nd year QB Baker Mayfield the captain of the Cleveland Browns during the 2019 during preseason so it's isn't unseemly for analyst to zero in on his gesturing prior to their whooping this past weekend. Mayfield's over-confident demeanor doesn't suggest that he is capable of aspiring the humility, professionalism, and dedication it takes to be an NFL team captain. This is my opinion.
Sunday he had 3 game interceptions, which actually should have been four, if Kareem Jackson hadn't drop Mayfield's ill-advised throw on the 1st snap of the game. 38 pass attempts is too many for Mayfield against a top ranked defense like the Titans who sacked Mayfield a total of 5 times Sunday afternoon. Hopefully this sort of embarrassment will bring humility, seriousness, and respect for the NFL into the heart of Mayfield.
Be advised, the Tennessee Titans are no hoax. Despite their absence from the 2018 NFL Playoffs, the Titans did finish last season 9-7. Their defense, as I expounded on in Mike Vrabel & Marcus Mariota ranked top 5 last year.

With Andre Luck retired and QB Nick Foles out for the season, there is no doubt in my mind that the Titans are favorites to win the AFC South over the Texans.
