Heading into Sunday’s game at Cleveland, Baltimore defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale gave a lofty compliment to this year’s No. 1 overall pick.

On Sunday, Mayfield will face the Ravens and the NFL’s No. 2 defense, which has a history of dominating young passers. Under coach John Harbaugh, the Ravens are 15-5 against rookie quarterbacks.

With comparisons and the hype come lofty expectations. 

I really don’t think Mayfield will go down in the history books, or be considered one of the all time greats like Elway and Favre, but all he could do is play to win the game.
