Baker Mayfield’s pick-six is further proof of his problems in the pocket

The Cleveland Browns came into Sunday with a 4-1 record, their best such mark since Bill Belichick was their head coach in 1994, and quarterback Baker Mayfield has been decent statistically, so an obvious Mayfield problem hasn’t been discussed enough.
