Unfortunately, what looked like a fresh start is turning into a disaster.
The Panthers have won one out of five games and are the worst in the league in total yards per game.
He also completed just 54.9 percent of his passes through Week 5, throwing five touchdowns and five interceptions.
Worst yet, he will be out of action indefinitely due to a high ankle sprain.
He left their Week 5 game against the San Francisco 49ers early and wore a walking boot afterward.
Mayfield also threw a pick-six to Emmanuel Moseley en route to a 37-15 loss at home.
But while he will be sidelined for a while, he will return under yet another head coach.
Baker Mayfield will be playing for his 6th head coach in five NFL seasons

ESPN’s Jake Trotter tweeted, “Baker Mayfield will be playing for his 6th head coach in five NFL seasons.”
Former defensive pass game coordinator and secondary coach Steve Wilks will serve as interim head coach after the Panthers fired Matt Rhule.
Rhule finished with an 11-27 record, which is an utter disappointment, especially considering he signed a seven-year, $62 million deal.
Rhule and Wilks will be Mayfield’s fifth and sixth head coaches, respectively.
Mayfield’s Coaches In Cleveland
The Browns selected Mayfield as the top overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, and Hue Jackson was coaching the squad.
However, he got fired after posting a 2-5-1 record, and Gregg Williams replaced him.
A year later, the Browns hired Freddie Kitchens, who lasted one season and had a 6-10 record.
Cleveland hired Kevin Stefanski in 2020 and won 11 regular-season games.
The Browns also defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road during that year’s Wild Card round.
Unfortunately, a Divisional Round loss to the Kansas City Chiefs ended their playoff run.
