The No. 1 overall pick - and reigning Heisman Trophy victor - Baker Mayfield has been named as the Cleveland Browns starter for their Week 4 matchup against the Oakland Raiders.

"I informed the group this morning that we're going to start Baker Mayfield and Tyrod will be the backup if healthy", Hue told reporters at his morning press conference.

So as we all start prepping for the Browns' first playoff berth since 2002, here's five impacts Mayfield will have on the offense as the reigning Heisman Trophy victor gets unleashed on the NFL. He entered in relief of a concussed Taylor and threw for 202 yards in two-plus quarters of action as Cleveland fought back from a 14-point deficit versus the New York Jets.

"It's 2018, don't really care", he said, according to ClevelandBrowns.com's Andrew Gribble. In turn, it's highly likely Hue Jackson sticks with the first-year quarterback.

"Modric gives us a lot every game", Isco said to Movistar of Modric, who was linked with Inter during the transfer window. Yet, they did fail to create as well as they usually do against a Catalan opponent who came firing from the first minute.

After first defending himself against Colin Cowherd and then trolling the TV analyst after the Browns' recent win, it's obvious Mayfield has no problem saying what's on his mind.

"Baker has worked extremely hard", Jackson added. But I think he can handle it.

There will have been 10 days off before the Browns play the Raiders in Oakland, so offensive coordinator Todd Haley will have had plenty of time to develop a game plan suited to Mayfield's skillset.
