Baker Mayfield did something remarkable this week.
Just days after being signed by the Los Angeles Rams, and after studying a new playbook on the cross-country flight to join his new team, he played the majority of the snaps for the Rams on Thursday night against the Las Vegas Raiders.
And he helped deliver a win.
After the Rams went three-and-out on their first possession of the game with John Wolford under center — and running the ball on all three plays — Mayfield entered the game on the Rams’ next possession.
And immediately connected with Van Jefferson on a 21-yard gain on his first snap in a Los Angeles uniform.
