While the Cleveland Browns quarterback has typically discussed his team's -- as well as his own -- performance during its 9-3 season, he's also managed to work pop culture references into his answers on a near-weekly basis.

From lines from Will Ferrell movies to Snoop Dogg lyrics to quotes from "The Office," Mayfield's colorful references have come from anywhere and everywhere. With that in mind, let's take a look at all of the pop culture references that Cleveland's quarterback has made to this point in the season:

Week 5: Ricky Bobby

The scenario: Mayfield is asked how he felt after taking a big hit in the Browns' 32-23 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

The quote: "A little sore right now. We will find out tomorrow when we look at it. I earned that one. I said it after the game on the field, I think that was the worst game I have played out of the five so far. I have to get better. A lot to learn from, but we learned on that defense and we got the yards when we needed it. The good thing about it is we do not have to learn from a loss – we can get better after a win. Just the mindset of trying to be just a bunch of big hairy American winning machines is important."

Week 7: "Ruff Ryders Anthem"

The scenario: Mayfield is asked about bouncing back from a slow start to set a franchise record for consecutive completions in the Browns' 37-34 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

The quote: “It is just a necessary mindset of doing whatever it takes to win. Having to watch that first quarter – Stop. Drop. Shut ‘em down. Open up shop. Like, oh no. That’s how Ruff Ryders roll.”

The reference: The chorus to DMX's 1998 song "Ruff Ryders' Anthem."

Week 10: "6 Foot 7 Foot"

The scenario: Mayfield is asked about star defensive end Myles Garrett's performance in the Browns' 10-7 win over the Houston Texans.

The quote: “Yeah, they made great plays when they needed to. I think Myles took the approach that real Gs move in silence like lasagna.”

The reference: A line from Lil' Wayne's 2011 song "6 Foot 7 Foot"

Week 11: "Nuthin' But a 'G' Thang"

The scenario: Mayfield is asked about Myles Garrett's absence in the Browns' 22-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

The quote: “Yeah, obviously that is not a one-man job to fill those shoes. I know that is probably the most cliché thing, but it is just the truth. We had a ton of guys step up. When they knew that Myles was out, they knew they had to get funky on the field, and just like an old batch of collard greens, they just played well together.”

The reference: One of Snoop Dogg's lines in the 1992 Dr. Dre song "Nuthin' But a 'G' Thang"

Week 12: Ron Swanson

The scenario: Mayfield is asked about some of his missed throws in the Browns' 27-25 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The quote: “No, I really feel like we left a lot of points up on the board. I truly do. There were a ton of missed opportunities just from my perspective, a lot of missed throws. There are only two things I hate more than missing throws, and that is lying and skim milk, and skim milk is just water lying about being milk. I have to make those throws.”

The reference: A line from Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) in the 17th episode of Season 5 of "Parks and Recreation."

Week 13: Dwight Schrute

The scenario: Mayfield is asked about what's changed about him in the past month following the Browns' 41-35 win over the Tennesee Titans.

The quote: Whenever I am about to do something, I think, ‘Would an idiot do that?’ And if they would, then I don’t do that.”

The reference: A line from Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) in Episode 16 of Season 3 of "The Office."
