CLEVELAND, Ohio — Baker Mayfield is just the gift Cleveland fans needed this season, especially in the wake of LeBron James’ departure.The love affair between Mayfield and the fans began the moment he came bounding off the bench to win the Jets game in Week 3, and continued through Sunday’s 26-18 victory over the Bengals in the home finale that improved the Browns to 7-7-1 overall and 5-2-1 at home.The seven-game swing from last year marked the biggest turnaround in team history, and cemented Mayfield’s status as Cleveland’s new favorite son.

The chair umpire who penalized Serena Williams in the U.S. Open final is pleased to be getting back to work. Carlos Ramos is assigned to the Davis Cup semifinal between Croatia and the United States this weekend in Zadar. "I'm just focusing on this tie and working again.
