Cleveland Browns 1-0 1st time since 2004

Start exploring

For the first time since 2004, the Cleveland Browns have started a season with a win. A victory at the cost of former quarterback Baker Mayfield made the victory that much sweeter.

With 8 seconds remaining in his NFL debut, rookie kicker Cade York made a 58-yard field goal to give the Browns a 26-24 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, foiling Mayfield's 

attempt at payback for weeks of buildup and perceived jabs. Myles Garrett, a Browns defensive lineman who recorded two sacks, said, "We were simply ready to get out there and put everything to bed."

Referring to the T-shirts that Mayfield's camp made earlier in the week, he said, "It had us a bit off the leash. "The Browns won their first season opener on the road in 28 years thanks to 141 yards

rushing from Nick Chubb, 70 yards from scrimmage and two scores from Kareem Hunt. Mayfield, who played for Cleveland for four seasons until being traded in July, completed 16 of 27 passes 

for 235 yards and two scores. For the record, Mayfield admitted that his team's slow start cost them the victory. Mayfield came so close to winning anyhow. After falling behind by 13 points

in the fourth quarter, he rallied the Panthers with a touchdown run of 7 yards, a touchdown pass of 75 yards to Robbie Anderson, and a drive of 64 yards in seven plays that set up Eddy Pineiro's

game-winning field goal with 1:13 left on the clock. However, the Panthers wasted too much time. Browns backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, starting in place of the suspended Deshaun Watson, 

threw touchdown passes of 13 and 9 yards to Donovan Peoples-Jones and Amari Cooper, respectively, setting up the longest field goal attempt by the Browns since 1984.
