CLEVELAND — After one of the best games of his career, Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is up for the FedEx Air Player of the Week award.

Mayfield had an impressive outing against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, throwing a season-high 25 competitions for 334 yards and four touchdowns—the first Browns quarterback to throw four touchdowns in a half since legendary Otto Graham did it in 1951.

In the first half alone, Mayfield found nine different receivers for completions.

Mayfield has not thrown an interception in five straight games and has not thrown an interception in the past 156 passing attempts.

"Just realizing what I am capable of, I have always believed in myself, and I am not going to pay attention to BS. Just put my head down and work. The job is not finished yet. Playing confident, being who I am and not looking for any approval on the outside is how I have always been the best at what I have done. That is how I need to do it,” Mayfield said after the win Sunday. “I can’t let people change me because somebody did it different in the past. I am who I am, and I have always said that, so I am going to continue to do that and improve, but then also trying to elevate the guys around me.”

Mayfield is up for the award against Matthew Stafford of the Lions and Derek Carr from the Raiders.
