QB Baker Mayfield breaks National Football League record for TD passes in rookie season

QB Baker Mayfield breaks National Football League record for TD passes in rookie season

Mayfield went 27-of-37 for 284 yards and three touchdowns in the win. But the Cleveland Browns had the ball, and that was bad. Possible pick: defensive lineman Nick Bosa of Ohio State (Cards took QB Josh Rosen last year). During the fourth quarter he threw 1-yard pass to Antonio Callaway for goal.

Breshad Perriman, the Raven's 2015 first-round pick, was cut by Baltimore on September 1, and made the Ravens pay on the Browns' second drive. Down by nine points with seven minutes left, Cleveland got within a few yards of moving in position for a game-winning field goal in the final minute. Quarterbacks Matt Ryan and Ryan Tannehill each caught touchdown passes. Two rushing touchdowns very well should've been four if it weren't for a ball that came inches away from the goal line and a very questionable holding call on Maxx Williams. "There are a lot of guys around me who helped me do it".

EXPENSIVE SEAT: It might have been the most expensive seat in the National Football League on Sunday. Tom Coughlin was not impressed. Earlier this season, the Jaguars notified the fourth pick of the 2017 draft that his suspension earlier this season voided the guarantees for his $7.1 million salary over 2019 and 2020. Jabrill Peppers attempted to return it 99-yards for a touchdown. He broke the record of 26 set by Indianapolis' Peyton Manning and Seattle's Russell Wilson, and he did it despite starting only 13 games.

After the Cleveland Browns scored a touchdown to go ahead 7-3 in the first quarter Sunday, Jackson responded by driving Baltimore down the field and capping it with a 25-yard run. "That's who I wanted to see with the last opportunity was him".

Now, Baltimore is poised to end its three-year hiatus from the playoffs. Baltimore Ravens won 26-24.

After replacing Hue Jackson in late October and rallying the Browns (7-8-1) to within a victory of a winning record, Williams is confident that no matter who's in charge next year, the woebegone franchise is headed in the right direction with Baker Mayfield at quarterback. However, to make that happen, they'll have to end a hot closing stretch to the regular season with perhaps their biggest accomplishment yet: Going on the road and beating the Baltimore Ravens, a team fighting for their playoff lives.
