Lamar Jackson played the hero for the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night against the Cleveland Browns and didn't even need a cape or a mask. Jackson exited the game about halfway through the fourth quarter as he reportedly battled cramps.

The NFL is making major coronavirus protocol changes, including team facilities shutting down for two days after games; NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre weighs in on'Fox and Friends Weekend.' Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns can do more than just run the ball, and the NFL's longest active playoff drought is moving closer to an end after 18 seasons. Mayfield threw for a season-high 334 yards with all four of his touchdown passes in the first half, and the Browns scored the first 17 points before holding on to win their fourth straight, 41-35 over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. With both chasing AFC playoff berths, the Browns looked like the team leading a division -- they are second in the AFC North behind the unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers -- as they improved to 9-3 for the third time in their expansion era.

A year ago, the multi-faceted star set an NFL single-season record for yards rushing by a quarterback and threw 36 TD passes. The Browns were incapable of stopping him.
After a long offseason, NFL fans finally got to see their favorite stars play on Thursday … for a few minutes before they were subbed out as a precaution due to the fact that football is incredibly dangerous. Still, there was a bit of action and intrigue, including the debuts of some highly touted quarterback prospects. The usual caveat for preseason is that you shouldn't get too excited, it's just one game, it's nearly impossible to judge a player by a single performance in a glorified exhibition game, blah blah blah. Given all that, it's now time to determine whether the five rookie signal-callers taken in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft will make the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Baker Mayfield (No. 1 pick, Cleveland Browns).
