— NFL (@NFL) February 2, 2019
Mayfield was up for the award after his record-breaking season with the Browns. In just 14 appearances, he set the NFL rookie record for most touchdown passes in a season with 27. He beat previous record holders Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson.
However, Mayfield lost to Barkley who had 15 touchdowns and a combined 2,028 rushing and receiving yards.
Barkley also won the Pepsi Rookie of the Year Award on Thursday, beating Mayfield in a vote by fans.
Mayfield and Barkley had a bet on the award and now Mayfield owes the Giants’ rookie a chain for his accomplishment.
