Lamar Jackson scorches Browns on 25-yard TD run

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku right catches a three-yard touchdown pass against Cincinnati Bengals strong safety Shawn Williams during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday Dec. 23 2018 in Cleveland

This was Mayfield's 27th touchdown pass of the season.

Martindale believing in his players, when the Browns were one completion from victory, that's what won the game.

The combined record of all 16 opponents next season based on 2018 results is 123-129-2 and Cleveland will face 4 playoff teams (indicated with a *) in 2019 - Baltimore Ravens twice, New England, the LA Rams and Seattle.

Weddle had the opportunity to earn the incentive a year ago but failed when the Bengals beat the Ravens and prevented them from clinching a playoff berth. All they had to do was defeat the Cleveland Browns to capture the AFC North.

The Ravens clinched the AFC North with a 10-6 record and prevented the Steelers from going to the playoffs.




The Ravens could have made this game a lot easier, but little mistakes caught up with the Ravens.

Mayfield finishes his season with 3,725 passing yards and 27 touchdowns in 14 games, easily the highest totals among the five quarterbacks selected in the first round of the National Football League draft this year. Also moving outside his comfort zone was Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater, who lined up for what looked like a field-goal attempt, but took the snap and threw a ideal pass to Levine Toilolo for a touchdown against Green Bay. Jabrill Peppers attempted to return it 99-yards for a touchdown. The problem was, it cost Peppers a fumble recovery for a touchdown that would've pulled the Browns to within 20-14 just before the half. Overall, the Ravens rushed for 179 yards in the first half.

A win today would give the Browns their first winning record since 2007. "At least we got the ball back".

It prevented a nightmare repeat of a year ago, when all the Ravens had to do was beat the Bengals at home to clinch, but gave up a 49-yard touchdown pass with 44 seconds left to fall. After the TD, his second of the season, he held his hand to ear as if to hear the boos that erupted after he carried the ball for 5 yards on a reverse on the opening drive.

Browns: First priority during the offseason is to decide whether Williams sheds the interim label as head coach or if someone else gets the job.
