NFL Christmas Day takeaways: Rodgers’ record, Baker melt down, Cardinals collapse

Within the spirit of the vacation season, and since Saturday’s video games are going to rely within the standings, we as soon as once more mix my Sunday FreakOut weekly evaluation column and Soccer Issues weekly preview column…

1. Your Sunday FreakOut: Saturday Version, for the Browns-Packers tilt…

Baker Mayfield Is Enjoying for His Job the Subsequent Two Weeks: The Browns are going to examine in on the big-name quarterbacks this offseason, and possibly the second-tier names too (actually, this season, Jimmy Garoppolo has outplayed Mayfield considerably). And if Mayfield performs like he did on Saturday, it’s not even a tough determination. You can really take subject with three of the 4 interceptions—two have been blatant penalties (whereas it was an unwise and late determination on the deep ball for Donovan Folks-Jones within the second quarter, it’s not markedly totally different than this play) and one his receiver fell down. However Mayfield was late, with the incorrect ball location and velocity on that throw supposed for Landry, he was equally late and too mild on his contact on a crosser to Austin Hooper that ought to have been picked, and all through the sport his ball location simply wasn’t there. At this level, the Browns want Sunday and Week 17 to go chalk (Bengals over Ravens and Chiefs over Steelers in Week 16, then Rams over Ravens and Chiefs over Bengals in Week 17), and Cleveland must win in Pittsburgh after which beat the Bengals at dwelling to get to the postseason. That’s the one method it turns into a greater than 50/50 likelihood that Mayfield is again in 2022.
