In his young NFL career, Baker Mayfield has already demonstrated exquisite ball skills.
Browns offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens is using that to his advantage.
Rather than just having Mayfield execute simple handoffs on every rushing play, Kitchens is having him utilize some creative exchanges to fool the defense.
This statue of liberty-style handoff to Nick Chubb is a perfect example, as it froze the defense just enough to spring Chubb for a nice gain.
Like Mahomes, Mayfield's experience as a high school baseball player is now showing on Sundays.
