NASHVILLE — Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield had a phenomenal first half during the game against the Tennessee Titans, setting a record that hasn’t been seen in nearly 70 years.

With a touchdown pass to wide receiver Rashard Higgins, Mayfield recorded his fourth touchdown in the first half.

He set a record as the first Browns quarterback to record four touchdown passes in the first half of a game since Hall of Famer Otto Graham did it in 1951.

Mayfield had found receivers who went for six three other times, including Jarvis Landry, Donovan Peoples-Jones, and a surprise big guy touchdown by offensive tackle Kendall Lamm.

That's not to mention the fifth touchdown by Nick Chubb that gave the Browns the most points in the first half of a game in franchise history as they took a 38-7 lead over the Titans just before the half.
