The theme of the first-round matchup of Cleveland and Carolina was Baker Mayfield going up against his former Browns teammates and coaches. But, rookie kicker Cade York stole the show.
Following a great Mayfield drive to give Carolina the lead, Cade York faced a 58-yard field goal to win the game.

The kick by York made Browns fans happy
It might be premature for a statue, but York took a big step forward for one today.
Buy the jerseys. Build the statue. Sound the horns. The #Browns have a franchise kicker and his name is Cade York.

According to a random guy on twitter, it was the longest Browns field goal since 1980.

It’s a big win for Cleveland, who needs every win they can get while Deshaun Watson serves his suspension .
