I hurt this team, said the 4-INT performer.

The Cleveland Browns lost to the Green Bay Packers 24-22 on Saturday and quarterback Baker Mayfield admitted that he let his teammates down.

"I hurt the team," he said. The most frustrating thing for me is that our defense played against a really, really good offense. They're going to take advantage of it when you turn the ball over. They are just who they are.

Three quarterbacks have thrown three picks before the half this season, with the Jets' Zach Wilson and the Ravens' Lamar Jackson the only ones to do it. According to the research, all three of those throws were off target. Green Bay built a 21-12 halftime lead as Rodgers capitalized on all three of them.

The coach said that he didn't consider changing quarterbacks at halftime and that he would stick with his starter for the rest of the season.

"He's our starting quarterback," he said.

The Browns had a chance to win the game on their last drive despite early turnovers. The first Cleveland quarterback since Brandon Weeden in 2012 threw four picks in a game, as Baker Mayfield was picked off again in the final minute.

The second and third intercepts were intended for the same player, according to the quarterback.

The second pick up was caused by the third-and-19 throw from the Green Bay line. He tried to get the ball to his teammate on the sideline, but was picked off by Douglas.

It was extremely costly, a red-zone turnover, to not follow through on the one in the red zone. "Just sailed high," he said. The other one needs to put it outside. Douglas made a good play. I left it inside.

Douglas made the game-clinching pick at the Packers 40-yard line on a pass intended for Peoples-Jones, preventing the Browns from attempting a game-winning field goal in the final seconds.

He said it was sucks to end it on another turnover.

The loss to Green Bay has left the Cleveland Browns in last place in the division. The Cleveland Indians had a 16.0% chance to make the playoffs before Saturday's loss.

The team didn't have time to fly with the team to Green Bay on Friday because of the protocols that weren't clear by Monday. He was flown from Cleveland to Green Bay by the Browns.

The Packers game was the first time that he had practiced with the team in more than two weeks. He didn't attribute the mistakes to a lack of preparation.

He said it was just missed throws. There's no excuse. It is what it is.
