Taylor, who completed 10 of 11 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown, played for Cleveland for the first time since 2018 – when he was a member of the Browns – After injuring himself in Week 3 from a concussion, then-rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield took over. The Browns won the game and Mayfield kept the starting job.
