CLEVELAND — On Sunday, fans finally returned to Westeros after waiting more than a year and a half since Season 7 of Game of Thrones ended. Even the Cleveland Browns couldn't contain their excitement and tweeted some GOT-inspired photos of Baker Mayfield.
The photo shows QB Baker Mayfield dressed in a cloak he appears to have borrowed from Jon Snow, complete with the hashtag #ForTheThrone.
The Brown’s post garnered 13,000 likes and more than 2,000 retweets.
Mayfield, a Heisman Trophy winner, was picked by the Browns in the first-round draft in 2018. He started 13 games and set a new NFL rookie record with 27 passing touchdowns.
The season 8 premier was watched by a 17.4 million viewers, a record-breaking number that surpassed Season 7’s premier in 2017, according to the Associated Press.
