Lamar Jackson scorches Browns on 25-yard TD run

Lamar Jackson scorches Browns on 25-yard TD run

His early interception was answered with a 28 yard TD pass to Breshad Perriman.

The Browns rallied from a 17-7 second quarter deficit to keep the game in doubt until the final minutes.

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.

The Browns - who have gone 5-2 since Jackson was sacked - will finish their season against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, where a win will give them their first winning season since 2007.

The Baltimore Ravens couldn't have asked for a better scenario heading into today's AFC North matchup with the Cleveland Browns.

Lamar Jackson came up just short of the goal line before fumbling.

The old school marriage of a dominant defense and effective running attack has propelled the Baltimore Ravens into first place in the AFC North.

Ward was one of two first-round picks for Cleveland this past May, with quarterback Baker Mayfield representing the other at No. 1.

Any criticisms about C.J. Mosley's coverage skills were silenced for at least one day.

The Ravens went 9-7 but were eliminated from the playoffs in Week 17 previous year in a win-and-in situation vs. the Bengals by surrendering a 49-yard touchdown on fourth-and-12 from Andy Dalton to Tyler Boyd on the game's final play. The Ravens drove the Browns' 2 on a 25-yard catch by Willie Snead to the 2, but the Browns stopped tight end Maxx Williams for no gain on 1st and goal and then held Jackson to a yard on second down.

"Obviously, very disappointed for us to not get the win, but it's a great team".

The Ravens' 26-24 win secured the AFC's No. 4 seed.

Ward had a terrific year, registering 53 tackles, three interceptions, a forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, and 11 passes defended en route to a Pro Bowl appearance. Jarvis Landry just managed to secure a 16-yard pass that moved the Browns into Ravens territory.

Accuracy and ball security still remain an issue but Jackson going 14-of-24 for 179 passing yards isn't a problem when the Ravens are rushing for close to 300 yards in a game.
