Mayfield made his National Football League debut with 1:42 left in the second quarter, replacing an injured Taylor after Cleveland's starter was sacked for the third time.
The team had gone 635 days and 19 straight games since their last victory on December 24, 2016. Since then, Cleveland had 19-game winless streak. If anything, he was able to rush for 22 yards on four carries, but it was clear then that the Browns were not going to win the game if Taylor can't turn things around in the pocket. With Mayfield under center, the Browns erased what was once a 14-point deficit and won the game, 21-17.
As Joseph went through his pregame kicking routine for Thursday night's game against the Jets, Browns fans gave the new kicker a loud ovation with each made kick. Carlos Hyde ran in for his second touchdown of the game. Linebacker Joe Schobert and cornerback Terrance Mitchell intercepted Jets quarterback Sam Darnold on the next two possessions, sealing the game.
Darnold, whom many thought the Browns would take No. 1 overall in the April draft, finished 15 of 31 for 169 yards and the two picks.
The Jets (1-2) grabbed a 14-0 lead on a pair of touchdowns by former Browns running back Isaiah Crowell.

Moon and Kim were also expected to hold a joint news conference on Wednesday if their two sets of summit meetings go smoothly. The North often holds off reporting stories until it has had time to review and edit the video for maximum propaganda impact.
Mayfield led four scoring drives and completed 17 of 23 passes for 201 yards in just over a half of play after Taylor suffered a concussion.
This was the scene when a 40-yard field goal split the uprights in warmups. Taking over down 14-0 he led them down the field for three points on his drive. Mayfield caught a pass from Landry on a variant of the Eagles' famous "Philly Special" for a two-point conversion to tie it at 14.
The Browns suspended radio reporter Nathan Zegura eight games for his conduct on the sideline during last Sunday's loss at New Orleans.
