Baker Mayfield had hit rock bottom in his career after being released by the Panthers earlier this, the second franchise that decided he wasn’t capable of being their franchise QB. The Rams, dealing with injuries, swooped him up with limited options.

Baker Mayfield joined the Rams just 46 hours before tip-off. The Rams were down 16-3 with just 12 minutes left to go in the game. He led the Rams down the field twice in the fourth quarter before capping off the final drive with a 23-yard touchdown pass to Van Jefferson.

The magical performance from Mayfield is everything we love about sports. He was counted out and had his back against the wall yet still found a way to overcome all odds. Mayfield’s performance down the stretch of the game was nothing short of incredible.

Mayfield led the comeback with limited time to learn the playbook and his teammates. Who knows if Mayfield can continue to play well for the Rams going forward, but for a week he was able to put on a show.
