” It draws to be quite honest with you guys,” Mayfield said.” We did, and I think thats what harms the most,” Mayfield stated.” We got behind a little bit– a couple of charges here and there, a couple of drops and a couple of missed out on tasks,” Mayfield stated.” They popped a Cover 2 on us,” Mayfield said.” Obviously, each year there is turnover inside the locker space, which is regrettable because we had an extremely unique group here,” Mayfield said.
KANSAS CITY, Mo.– Baker Mayfield admitted how tough it was for the Browns remarkable season to end so abruptly with their 22-17 loss to Chiefs in Sundays AFC Divisional playoff video game.” It draws to be quite sincere with you people,” Mayfield said. “It draws due to the fact that many individuals have compromised a lot during this procedure and this really strange season and overcame adversity. Numerous individuals have actually stepped up– households of gamers and households of personnel– and everybody compromised a lot for us to be able to do this. It is just unfortunate for us to come up brief.” It sucks since our companied believe in it. Thats why were here, but trying to discover the positive out of it, were setting a new standard here. Everybody is saying in the locker room and continue to inform people that were going to be back. It draws when you come up short, however you get that taste of it and recognize you discovered lessons. In the meantime, it is absolutely going to sting.” He wished his good friend Patrick Mahomes well after the Chiefs quarterback was knocked out of the video game in the third quarter with a concussion. However Mayfield was sorry for the Browns missed opportunity to make it to the AFC Championship Game for the very first time considering that the 1989 season– 31 years ago.” Hopefully, Pat is OKAY,” Mayfield said. “You never want to see that. (Chief QB Chad) Henne can be found in which [13-yard] go to get fourth and inches and after that fourth-down conversion, they made the plays. It draws. Looking at everybody from our side of the ball, we provided it our all. We just came up brief.” He regreted the fact the Chiefs went for it on that 4th and inches instead of punting and offering the Browns the ball back with just over a minute left and the Browns down by five. The Browns had actually heated up in the second half and felt great about their chances to pull it out.” We did, and I believe thats what harms the most,” Mayfield said. “They went for it since I believe they might feel that, too. It is what it is.” Mayfield (23-of-37, 204 backyards, 1 TD, 1 INT, 74.6 score) was likewise great with Kevin Stefanski punting on fourth and 9 on the Browns final drive from their 32. The Chiefs got the ball back with 4:09 left and iced the victory when Chad Henne ran for 13 lawns on third and 14 with 1:14 left and then transformed the fourth and inches with a gutsy 5-yard pass to Tyreek Hill out of the shotgun.” Obviously, when you get the ball with momentum beginning to swing our method, we were confident that we were going to head out there [and score], “he said.” They chose to bring a number of pressures and made the plays, and we did not. No, by the method the game was going we thought (in) the way we dealt with that circumstance giving the ball to them and trusting our defense the way they were dipping into the time to get to stop. Like I said, there were an excellent couple of plays by Henne to transform there.” Mayfield acknowledged that the Browns shot themselves in the foot early and had a hard time to dig out of the hole. They opted for a 46-yard Cody Parkey field objective on the opening drive after a Jarvis Landry drop, a 3-yard loss on a brief pass to Landry and a sack that put them in 3rd and 21. On their 2nd drive, they had a holding call, two stop by Nick Chubb and a batted pass that Mayfield captured himself for an 8-yard loss.” We got behind a bit– a couple of penalties here and there, a few drops and a few missed out on tasks,” Mayfield stated. “We were not ourselves in that very first half and got behind a bit.” The half ended with Rashard Higgins fumbling through completion zone for a touchback after a perfect strike by Mayfield.” They popped a Cover 2 on us,” Mayfield stated. “Obviously, it was going to be a huge play. Its the easy finger-pointing response, but there are a lot of other plays we could have done. Certainly, I did the cardinal sin and threw across my body in the middle of the field on the very first drive coming out in the second half. We harmed ourselves in the first half, and they capitalized. Thats what the great teams do so they were much better than us.” His message to Higgins after that fumble?” The ball constantly discovers a method to come back to you after things like that happen, and were depending on him, “he said. “Theres a great deal of video game left– certainly, an entire half considering where we remained in the video game. We understood we were going to get the ball coming out in the second half, and we had whatever we wanted. Like I said, we hurt ourselves and they took benefit. They played extremely well and made plays when they needed to.” He could not speak to the Daniel Sorenson helmet-to-helmet hit on Higgins on that play.” I didnt look at it so not actually,” he said.Mayfield likewise kicked himself for the interception on his opening drive of the 2nd half. He threw short to Landry, but Tyrann Mathieu jumped the route and selected it off to begin the Chiefs at the Browns 19. Mayfield had tossed just one interception in his previous 10 games.” Obviously, like I stated, the cardinal sin of throwing late on the move over the middle of the [field], “he said.” Obviously, Tyrann (Mathieu) is an excellent player. Jarvis did not see him or Im sure he would have battled for it. Thats the type of gamer he is. I said it previously in the week, you need to understand where he is. Ill reflect on that. Perhaps a pump fake and run, and it is a different story, however the defense did a terrific job of not enabling any points and keeping us because video game because 2nd half. We simply have to capitalize. Like I stated, we did not make sufficient plays to win today, and the Chiefs did.” Mathieu dropped another near-pick in the fourth quarter when a ball deflected off Landrys hands. Overall, it was a rough day for Landry, who captured 7-of-10 targets for 20 lawns. The Chiefs also restricted Chubb to 69 yards rushing on 13 brought and Kareem Hunt to 32 lawns and a touchdown on 6 carries.On the Browns first play, left take on Jedrick Wills Jr. was lost to an ankle injury, and then his replacement Kendall Lamm was lost to one of his own.The Browns still handled to pull within five with 11:07 left in the video game on an 18-yard drive that ended with Hunts 3-yard TD run.” Obviously, each year there is turnover inside the locker space, which is regrettable due to the fact that we had an extremely special group here,” Mayfield said. “Like I stated, I told some of the men that understand for sure going to be back that well be back. As I have stated and reiterated throughout as the season has actually gone on, there is a brand-new standard here and that is to be expected.” This is going to leave a bad taste in our guys mouth for additional inspiration through the offseason, but yeah, we have come a long method considering that I first got here. We are refrained from doing yet, and that is the best part. Obviously, it harms to need to wait up until next September to have to play, but it is what it is.” Mayfield knows the young team, which went 11-5 and made the playoffs for the very first time in 18 years, will gain from this uncomfortable loss.” I think it will be incredibly important for our men to take a look at each play matters, you need to be extremely secured and function and undoubtedly, the atmosphere boggled the mind today. Those are important finding out experiences that we need to truly take in and grow from.”- Browns playoffs shirts, hats for sale: Heres where Cleveland Browns fans can purchase hats and shirts celebrating the team getting approved for the 2020 NFL playoffs.More Browns coverageBrowns lose 22-17 nailbiter to Chiefs in AFC divisional playoffs after Patrick Mahomes knocked out of the video game with concussionCleveland Browns didnt punt away a win against Kansas City, they filled their franchise with purpose: Doug LesmerisesIn a loss vs. Kansas City, the Browns showed they should get quicker on both sides of the ball this offseason– Film ReviewWhat a ride!
