MINNEAPOLIS — Baker Mayfield runs. He throws. And even ties his teammates' shoes.
As the Cleveland Browns moved up the field during the third quarter of their Week 4 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, offensive guard Wyatt Teller had to stop to tie his shoe. But rather than wait for his 6-foot-4, 314-pound teammate to bend over, loop, swoop, and pull, Mayfield opted to do it himself, deploying the bunny ears method to tie Teller's cleat for him before the Browns ran their next offensive play.
As one might imagine, the clip of Mayfield tying his teammate's cleat for him proceeded to go viral as further evidence that Mayfield does it all.
Unfortunately for the Browns, tying Teller's shoe for him was one of Mayfield's better plays -- at least through the game's first three quarters. Entering the fourth quarter, the No. 1 pick of the 2018 NFL Draft completed just 13 of his 25 pass attempts for 112 yards.
Yet despite Mayfield's modest output, Cleveland still managed to take an 11-7 lead into the fourth quarter, thanks to a 1-yard touchdown run from Kareem Hunt, an ensuing two-point conversion from Mayfield to fullback Andy Janovich and a 48-yard field goal from kicker Chase McLaughlin. The Vikings, however, enter the fourth quarter with possession of the ball, having failed to score a single point since the opening drive of the game.
