Kyler Murray beats Baker Mayfield again, rubs it in on Twitter
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray and Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield are friends. They have a lot in common. Both played collegiately at Oklahoma. Both won the Heisman Trophy. Both were drafted first overall.
However, only one has wins in the NFL when they face each other.
After the Cardinals beat the Browns and Mayfield 37-14 Sunday afternoon in Cleveland, Murray improved to 2-0 over his buddy. Murray had four touchdown passes. Mayfield had two but was picked off once and was sacked five times.
They faced in 2019, with the Cardinals beating the Browns 38-24 behind four touchdown runs from Kenyan Drake.
Murray made sure to point out that he is unbeaten over Mayfield on social media. Check out his postgame tweet posted above. You can tell he is happy he has bragging rights again.
Since the two teams are in different conferences, they do not face one another often. Murray will get to hold that over Mayfield’s head for a while.
