Baker Mayfield’s wife, Emily, saw her provocative outfit to Sunday’s Tennessee Titans game cause a stir.
Coming into the year, Emily was one of the few people on the planet who legitimately believed that Baker would be successful with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While most figured he would simply repeat his Carolina Panthers performance, she knew different.
As it turns out – Emily was right.
Baker has had a great 2023 in Tampa Bay. While the team itself is struggling, their quarterback has 12 touchdowns to four interceptions so far this season. His 92.7 passer rating is his best since 2018.
Although the Buccaneers’ four-game losing streak heading into this weekend is less than ideal, it isn’t Baker’s fault.
Because of that, an understandably excited Emily was giddy to come on Sunday and see her man in action.
Emily’s outfit to the proceedings caused something of a stir:
In a kooky week of football that saw Patrick Mahomes’ icy exchange with Brittany cause a stir and the truth about Bill Belichick’s walk of shame come out, is quite telling that Emily has enough sway to steal the headlines in this fashion.
But she is that level of social media influencer at this juncture. Prety much everything she posts blows up online.
Big picture, Baker may not be the difference-maker on the field that some of the league’s elite quarterbacks are. That is why, even when he plays well, his teams don’t win.

That said – nobody can pin the Buccaneers’ problems on him.
Baker has come to Tampa Bay and done exactly what was asked of him.
Will that buy Baker and Emily enough goodwill to return to the Buccaneers next season? Time will tell.
