Baker Mayfield made a powerful statement in his debut performance as the Rams quarterback on Thursday night vs. the Raiders.

The former Browns and Panthers passer led the team on a 98-yard game-winning drive in the last minute and 35 seconds. With 10 seconds remaining, Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson scored a 23-yard touchdown to help seal the team’s 17-16 win over Las Vegas.

NFL players and media members expressed their shock and excitement on Twitter after the shocking performance.
