Baker Mayfield Rams

The NFL world was completely stunned when reports emerged that Baker Mayfield could start for the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday against the Las Vegas Raiders. While he didn’t get the start, he ended up stealing the show when he was called off the bench in a thrilling come-from-behind victory.

It was a struggle for Mayfield and the Rams’ offense for most of the game, but they turned things around in the fourth quarter with a huge 17-play touchdown drive that was capped off by a rushing touchdown from Cam Akers.

The Rams’ defense then went on to get a huge stop, but Raiders punter A.J. Cole did an excellent job to pin the Rams back on their own two yard-line

Mayfield proceeded to lead perhaps the best drive of his NFL career, ultimately capped off by a beautiful game-winning touchdown pass to wide receiver Van Jefferson.

 

While Mayfield will get the majority of the credit for this unreal game-winning drive, perhaps the biggest play of the game came from Rams wide receiver Ben Skowronek, who made an unreal catch to set up the touchdown pass.

The NFL world took the chance to praise Mayfield on social media for his clutch performance in the win.

It was certainly one heck of a way for Baker Mayfield to make his Rams debut, and a huge step in his hopes of revitalizing his career in Los Angeles.
