A few days ago, the Los Angeles Rams‘ matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday looked like a relatively meaningless game for a team that was 3-9 and had apparently lost its starting quarterback, Matthew Stafford, for the season.

Enter Baker Mayfield and what could be a Hollywood-style resurrection act.

His prospects for reviving his career looked bleak, especially after leaving the Cleveland Browns on poor terms and a disappointing seven-game stint with the Carolina Panthers this season.

But in his first game with the Rams, he looked like the QB people thought he was capable of becoming when he was the first pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Although he had some struggles early, he led a last-minute touchdown drive from near his own end zone to give Los Angeles a 17-16 win.

It was pure Hollywood.

Fans on Twitter were amazed that Mayfield found a way to fit in so fast.

Commentator Skip Bayless compared what he did on Thursday to what arguably the greatest of all time did just a few days earlier on Monday Night Football.

This fan feels another Progressive commercial is on the way for Mayfield.

Baltimore Ravens defensive end Calais Campbell praised Mayfield for greatly shortening his learning curve.


A Gut-Wrenching And Possibly Fatal Loss For The Raiders

On the other side, the Raiders’ three-game winning streak is over, and they’re back to having problems holding leads and winning close games.

Commentator Nick Wright pointed out how they had reached a new low with this loss.

With a 5-8 record, Las Vegas’ playoff hopes are, for all intents and purposes, just about dead.
