The odds were against Baker Mayfield from the start of this game between the Los Angeles Rams and Las Vegas Raiders.
He was scooped off waivers by the Rams after being released by the Carolina Panthers earlier this week. Mayfield got the playbook on Tuesday night while flying to Los Angeles to meet with his new coaches and teammates, giving him between 36-48 hours to learn the plays if he was going to step under center.
But Mayfield, the former first overall selection of the 2018 NFL Draft, didn’t just grind out his first game in the toughest of circumstances. He led a miracle comeback to defeat the Raiders, 17-16, at SoFi Stadium in his first start as a Ram.
