Baker Mayfield completed 28-of-47 passes for 343 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Browns' 47-42, Week 14 loss to the Ravens Monday night. This was probably the game of the season to date, with the Ravens and Browns trading second-half punches. Whoever got the ball last was going to win, and it was Lamar Jackson who set Justin Tucker up for the game-winning 55-yard field goal with two seconds left to play. (The Browns took a safety on a multi-lateral final play.) Mayfield now has back-to-back 300-yard passing games after failing to accomplish the feat a single time Weeks 1-12. He also has nine touchdowns over his last three games, and his brutal interception to Tyus Bowser in this one was his first since Week 7. Mayfield is playing his best football of the season ahead of the playoffs. His touchdowns in this one 21- and 22-yard hookups with Rashard Higgins and Kareem Hunt sandwiched around a five-yard rushing score of his own. Mayfield gets a tough Week 15 date with the Giants as a middling QB2.

New York Giants DFS Spin

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Colt McCoy will start Week 15 against the Browns. Daniel Jones (hamstring, ankle) will miss his second game in the last two weeks. McCoy completed just 13-of-22 passes for 105 yards (4.7 YPA) with a touchdown and an interception in a Week 13 spot start, though he managed to pull off an upset of Seattle. The Giants should hide McCoy behind a run-heavy gamescript in Week 15.
