To Baker Mayfield, the handlebar mustache is sacred.
Which is why after the Cleveland Browns quarterback fell to the Denver Broncos, 24-19, Sunday, he shaved it off.
"I was undefeated, before Sunday, with the handlebar mustache," Mayfield told reporters Wednesday, "so I shaved it off because I didn't deserve it."
The Browns are currently on a four-game losing streak, and will host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Nov. 10. Mayfield has thrown for 1,963 yards and seven touchdowns, and appears to be in a sophomore slump with 12 interceptions.
