Buccaneers’ Baker Mayfield Has Perfect Day


Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield had an exceptional day Sunday in Green Bay. Throwing for 381 yards and four touchdowns, Mayfield posted a perfect quarterback rating of 158.3. The performance led the Pewter Pirates to a 34-20 victory over the Packers.

Mayfield talked about his performance and how important of a team win this was following the game.

“I’ll be honest. December games are all important,” Mayfield stated, via ESPN’s Jenna Laine. “This one was very important, but this one won’t matter unless we hit the reset button and move on to next week. It can’t be more special than any other. It is the most important one now, but enjoy it, and then we will move on to next week. That is the mentality we have to have as a unit.”

Only two quarterbacks have had perfect passer ratings at Lambeau Field, Mayfield on Sunday and Aaron Rodgers back in 2029 against the Raiders. This was Mayfield’s first win at Lambeau.

“Third time’s a charm, that’s for sure,” Mayfield said. “Our team was really prepared to come in here. Just liked we talked about that mentality, the playoff mentality, to come in here with one job in mind and just find a way to win, and we did that. So just couldn’t be happier with this group. We will enjoy it, but then hit the reset button onto next week.”

Head coach Todd Bowles couldn’t be happier with Mayfield’s performance this season.

“He’s meant everything,” Bowles continued. “From a mental standpoint to a quarterback standpoint, making plays. From a toughness standpoint, from a leadership standpoint. He’s done everything, he’s checked all the boxes. He’s doing all the right things now and I can’t say enough about him.”

Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is a Mayfield fan as well,

“He’s gritty and he’s a baller — he’s as fiery as they come,” stated Godwin. “And you want that. You want your guy to be out there and to compete. Like there’s no flinch in him. He gets banged up. He gets hit. And he’s right back in it. Like there’s never any hesitation in him. We love that. We respect that in him. I’m happy for him. He came out here and found a way to ball.”

Through 14 games Mayfield has thrown for over 3,300 yards, 24 TDs and 8 INTs. The Pewter Pirates may have found their franchise quarterback…
