Baker Mayfield got his second opportunity this season after having a rollercoaster of a year. The QB was claimed by the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday. To top that off, Mayfield is already making his debut for the Rams as they take on the Raiders in a Thursday Night game. And what a debut it was. The Los Angeles Rams aren’t the healthiest squad this season. With QB Matthew Stafford and star receiver Cooper Kupp foreseeably out, the team came to depend on backup quarterback John Wolford.

But, Wolfhard was bothered by a neck injury. This paved way for Mayfield to be subbed in to make his debut for the Rams. With this debut, Mayfield has officially played for three different teams in his first five seasons.

Mayfield leads the Rams to victory

Although the Rams were trailing the Raiders, there’s no doubt Mayfield could potentially settle into Sean McVay’s offense. With only two days of being able to grasp whatever he could of the Rams’ strategy, with more time Mayfield could potentially be the Rams’ short-term solution while Stafford recovers. The 27-year-old will eventually need to find a team once he hits free agency. A good run with the Rams would boost his shot at getting potential offers.

Mayfield’s performance during the Rams’ faceoff against the Raiders was nothing short of impressive. The QB kept fans on the edge of their seats until the end. In an almost impossible move, the quarterback made a perfect throw to Van Jefferson with barely twenty seconds on the clock. The Rams took a stunning 17-16 victory over the Raiders. Baker Mayfield has cemented a more than an impressive first impression that won’t be forgotten any time soon.
