Two Interceptions. One fumble. 100 passing yards. 13.4 passer rating. Four sacks. Eight quarterback hits. One fake flag planted at mid-field. Zero touchdowns.

Baker Mayfield, a quarterback who has the luxury of throwing to Pro Bowl receivers, played his worst professional football game yet in last night’s embarrassing 31-3 loss to the 49ers.

If you feel bad for one second about Baker’s dogshit start to the season, consider how he’s hurt his poor fantasy owners. Last night, Baker redefined rock bottom, scoring NEGATIVE fantasy points no thanks to three turnovers.

Let’s allow these unfortunate owners to vent.

Things will not get easier for Baker and the Browns. They take on the 4-1 Seahawks before a bye week, then will rev their season back up against the unbeaten Patriots. Gulp.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
