Oklahoma Football in the NFL: Marquise Brown, Mark Andrews shine vs Cincinnati, Baker Mayfield breaks losing streak

There were highlights, folks.

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

In an eventful Week 10 in the NFL, many Oklahoma Sooners made highlights and headlines. We’ve got the whole rundown below:

The Sooner duo of Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown stole the show in the early window this past Sunday, catching passes all over the field from MVP candidate Lamar Jackson in the Ravens’ blowout win over Cincinnati. Following last week’s prime time win over New England, the show continued to roll for 7-2 B’More in Week 10.

Andrews, the 2017 Mackey Award winner, found the end zone twice to add to his 53 yards on six receptions on a team-high eight targets. This catch was the first touchdown scored across the league in Week 10.

Hollywood got in on the action, too. Catching all four of his targets for 80 yards and a touchdown, Brown dazzled downfield all day for B’More in the 49-13 road win.

This team is one of the most fun I’ve ever watched at any level of football, and I look forward to enjoying it for years to come. The Ravens host the 6-3 Texans in a clash of AFC divisional leaders next Sunday.

Joe Mixon put up his best rushing numbers of the season on the other side for the Bengals in the loss, going for 114 yards on 30 carries along with two receptions for 37 yards.

Bengals linebacker Jordan Evans recorded one solo and one assisted tackle and defended a pass on the afternoon.

Kyler Murray put up some big numbers in Tampa Bay, but unfortunately the Cardinals came up short in the win department. Going 27-of-44 passing for 324 yards and three touchdowns, K1 also added 38 yards on three rushes in the 30-27 loss. He did have his share of highlights despite the result.

The milestones continue to pile up in a promising rookie season for Murray. The 3-6-1 Cardinals head to San Francisco for a rematch against the 8-1 Niners next Sunday.

Following four straight defeats, Baker Mayfield finally led the Browns to victory in Week 10. The 2018 draft’s No. 1 overall pick finished 26-of-38 passing for 238 yards and two touchdowns in the much-needed 19-16 win over the Bills.

Although he was sacked twice, Baker maintained his poise and didn’t turn the ball over for the second-straight game.

Browns rookie kicker Austin Seibert connected on both of his field goal attempts. He also met up with an old teammate, Bills starting right tackle Cody Ford, after the game. Up next for the 3-6 Browns is a matchup against division rival Pittsburgh at home in Week 11.

Damien Williams rushed for 77 yards on 19 carries and added five catches for 32 yards in the Chiefs’ 35-32 loss at Tennessee.

Gerald McCoy grabbed one solo and three assisted tackles along with this sack in the Panthers’ road loss at Green Bay.

Steven Parker also made a highlight, registering the first interception of his NFL career. The second-year safety also defended a pass and added two solo tackles in the Dolphins’ surprising 16-12 win at Indy.
