Browns QB Baker Mayfield looking forward to more matchups with Lamar Jackson

Browns QB Baker Mayfield looking forward to more matchups with Lamar Jackson

A cliche is the best way to explain what he did; he threw everything but the kitchen sink at Mayfield.

The 23-year-old passed Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson for the National Football League rookie passing touchdown record with his 27th of the season against the Baltimore Ravens.

Mayfield broke the record during Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens. All they had to do was defeat the Cleveland Browns to capture the AFC North. "He always got the best out of us". As fans in Baltimore will never forget, Dalton found Tyler Boyd for a 48-yard touchdown, and the Ravens' playoff hopes were spoiled. His early interception was answered with a 28 yard TD pass to Breshad Perriman.

Although Mayfield pierced the NFL's top-ranked defense for 376 yards, he was intercepted three times.

"If you want to write a book about this season, probably no one would believe it", coach John Harbaugh said. Humphrey was challenged in the secondary and struggled against a talented Cleveland receiving core, including tight end David Njoku, who boxed him out for a 42-yard gain late in the third quarter. 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.

Any criticisms about C.J. Mosley's coverage skills were silenced for at least one day. The Ravens caught a break as the play had already been whistled dead. Williams was non-committal about his future, declining to reveal whether he'd be interviewed for the permanent coaching role now that the regular season is finished. The Jets said goodbye to Todd Bowles, who went 24-40 over four years.

Defensive coordinator Don Martindale called a DB blitz on third-and-10 that led to a deflection and near-interception, then sent the house on fourth-and-10 with Mayfield throwing it to Mosley to secure the dramatic victory.

The Ravens clinched the AFC North with a 10-6 record and prevented the Steelers from going to the playoffs. The Ravens' next drive ended after three plays, the last a questionable speed option in which Jackson's pitch hit the ground before Ty Montgomery picked it up.

The game was over, the Ravens won, and fans can now start looking ahead to a home playoff game against the Chargers.
