Baker Mayfield, Browns players confident ‘we’ll be back’ after AFC divisional round loss

January 18th, 2021

The best Cleveland Browns season in over 25 years came to an end on Sunday. The Browns lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, 22-17, in the AFC divisional round.

It was earlier than the players wanted it to end. But they’re confident they can ascend beyond the standard set by this team in the coming years. Quarterback Baker Mayfield was among several Browns leaders who see the bright future in Cleveland.

“I told some of the guys that know for sure going to be back that we will be back,” Mayfield said after the game. “As I have said and restated throughout as the season has gone on, there is a new standard here and that is to be expected. This is going to leave a bad taste in our guys’ mouth for extra motivation through the offseason, but yeah, we have come a long way since I first got here. We are not done yet, and that is the best part.”

Myles Garrett echoed those sentiments. The defensive end was limited throughout the game with an oblique injury but still bagged a fourth-quarter sack.

“We’ve got a hell of a team all the way around,” Garrett said. “We can make it to the end, we showed that. I like our odds next year just because we’ve got a lot of guys in here that are young and can keep on getting better.”

Wideout Jarvis Landry scored the Browns’ first touchdown Sunday. He’s ready for bigger and better things, too.

“I have always been optimistic since the day I stepped foot in Cleveland. It is Believeland, and we just have to keep believing,” Landry said in his Zoom session. “The right pieces will fall into place. We have a great team as is. If we can add guys, that can obviously help us getter better in certain areas.”

With the core offense nearly all under contract for 2021, it’s easy to see how a few smart moves to bolster the defense — which loses as many as six starters to free agency — can help lift this young team to the next level.
