The Cleveland Browns were one of the few bright spots in 2020.
That is evidenced by the recent release of top ten players in terms of jersey sales.
No other sport sees jersey sales move as much week-to-week as the NFL– it’s what makes our job @fanatics so much fun!! But the more things change, @PatrickMahomes and @TomBrady remain on top again, finishing #1 and #2 for the season. Here’s how jersey sales played out… let’s go! pic.twitter.com/5XAVBtBkl4

Only the Browns and the New Orleans Saints had multiple players in the top ten.
Mayfield Comes In At Number 2.
Baker Mayfield has been an underdog his whole life and beaten the odds.
A win Sunday night would be his biggest achievement yet. pic.twitter.com/lD3eaH7z8x

QB Baker Mayfield’s leadership down the stretch to catapult the Browns into the playoffs is the likely reason his jersey sales ranked second in the NFL.
The 25 year old is in the midst of his career-best season as the Browns attempt to win their first playoff game in 18 years on Sunday.
Chubb Comes In At Number 7.

RB Nick Chubb’s jersey was also a hot commodity this year.
With his consistent performances interrupted only by injury, Nick Chubb remains a Cleveland Browns’ and NFL fan favorite.
His is the highest-selling jersey by a player other than a quarterback.
Quarterbacks Dominate The Top 10.
Quarterbacks, as usual, rue the day when it comes to jersey sales.
Eight of the top ten jerseys are for QBs.
The top ten is as follows:
- Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs
- Baker Mayfield, QB, Cleveland Browns
- Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers
- Tom Brady, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- Josh Allen, QB, Buffalo Bills
- Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens
- Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns
- Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks
- Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints
- Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints
It’s somewhat surprising that the Pittsburgh Steelers do not have any players in the top ten given their impressive 11-0 run.
However, it comes as no surprise that Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes has the top selling jersey in the NFL this year.
One thing is for sure, neither Baker Mayfield nor Nick Chubb is thinking about jersey sales as the team prepares for its first playoff game in 18 years.
A lot is on the line for the underdog Browns dealing with massive COVID-19 issues as they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night.
