The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had the task of trying to replace quarterback Tom Brady, who announced his retirement for the second time. With a quarterback market that was far from rich in free agency, and the fact that the Buccaneers picked way too late in the first-round to draft a top quarterback prospect, the options appeared limited. But, the Buccaneers gave an opportunity to Baker Mayfield, the 2018 first-overall pick.

This move has paid dividends for the Buccaneers. Mayfield has thrived in Tampa Bay's offense, having the likes of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin to throw to, and could rely upon Rachaad White in the running game. Mayfield threw for 4,044 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions while completing 64.3 percent of his passes. Not to mention, Mayfield led the Buccaneers to a 9-8 record, good enough for them to win the NFC South and clinch a spot in the playoffs.

So, what is Mayfield's record in the playoffs?

What is Baker Mayfield's record in playoff games?

Mayfield holds a 2-2 record in playoff games in his career.

In 2020, Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns clinched their first playoff spot since 2002. In the Wild Card Round, the Browns upset the rival Pittsburgh Steelers, beating them 48-37 to win their first playoff game since 1994. Cleveland would face the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round. While it was a close game, the Browns defense was unable to stop a scramble by backup quarterback Chad Henne for a first down late in the first quarter, clinching a 22-17 loss.

Mayfield's next shot at the playoffs would be this season with the Buccaneers. The Buccaneers were able to fend off the Eagles and drive up the score to pick up the 32-9 win and advance to the Divisional Round. But, the Buccaneers' season would end after losing 31-23 to the Detroit Lions.
