The Browns offense has a Baker Mayfield problem. Here’s how Freddie Kitchens can fix it.

The Browns’ first drive of the 2019 season was everything fans in Cleveland expected it to be.

Despite some minor setbacks, Baker Mayfield led the offense right down the field, executing a beautifully crafted opening script of plays. Mayfield hit Rashard Higgns after a quick three-step drop to get Cleveland going. The next play was an RPO flare screen to Jarvis Landry that picked up a chunk of yardage. That was followed by another RPO which opened up a running lane for Nick Chubb to run for 10 yards and another first down. Then Odell Beckham checked in with a 16-yard reception after some Mayfield improvisation. Two plays later, the second-year quarterback fired a strike down the seam to Higgins, who was sprung free by a brilliant play design from first-year head coach Freddie Kitchens. A perfectly executed counter play helped Dontrell Hilliard find the end zone.
