Baker Mayfield said he didn't really care that the Caroline Panthers booed the team during Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. With just over nine minutes left to play in the game versus the Cardinals, Panthers fans booed Mayfield and the Panthers' offense.
The Panthers ended up losing 26-16, which pushed them to a 1-3 record. Mayfield completed 22-of-34 of his passes for 197 yards, one touchdown, two interceptions, and one lost fumble. “Obviously, I’m frustrated with the fact that we’re 1–3.
We’re four weeks into the year. We can sit here and let you guys pile on us or we’re gonna come together as a locker room,” Mayfield said, via WCNC’s Nick Carboni. “I don’t really care about the fact that our fans are booing or what’s going on.
We’re going to figure it out and when we win it’ll still be just us in the locker room and that’s really all I care about so we’re gonna be just fine”. With five minutes left to play in the game, the Panthers scored a touchdown to cut the deficit to 10, but it was too late.
“Did we go down and score a touchdown after they started booing? Yes,” Mayfield said.
Mayfield off to a rough start to his Panthers tenure
After the Cleveland Browns moved on from Mayfield, he was hoping to get a fresh start with the Panthers and revive his career.
After the Panthers named Mayfield their starting quarterback, he got his wish - to have another chance to prove himself as the starting quarterback in the league. Four games into the season, Mayfield has just four touchdowns along with three interceptions.
Mayfield hasn't been impressive so far and Panthers fans already seem to be unhappy about his play. In Week 5, the Panthers are hosting the San Francisco 49ers. It remains to be seen if Mayfield can bounce back this week and lead the Panthers to their second victory.
