Lamar Jackson scorches Browns on 25-yard TD run

Lamar Jackson scorches Browns on 25-yard TD run

Baker Mayfield, the top-overall pick by the Browns in the 2018 draft, has completely transformed this organization.

Baltimore needed a late fourth-down interception to stifle Baker Mayfield's momentum, secure a 26-24 victory over Cleveland and wrap up the AFC North. There was no other way. The Ravens rushed for a season-high 296 yards against Cleveland and dominated that facet of the game. Details on the game time have not yet been announced. Jabrill Peppers attempted to return it 99-yards for a touchdown. On a dismal day for the Ravens defense, cornerback Jimmy Smith had two interceptions. Two catches were reviewed.

Jackson had a 33-yard TD run with 10:28 left in the third quarter wiped out by a holding call.

The Browns went three-and-out after a Mayfield pass went off a wide-open Jarvis Landry's helmet at the Browns' 35.

Mosley tipped a pass intended for Antonio Callaway, and Smith swiped it. The Ravens capped their sixth 10-win season in 11 years under Harbaugh.

It helps that Williams has a rising star in Mayfield, who threw three touchdowns Sunday to eclipse Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson for TD passes by a rookie.

Ravens: Face the Chargers, a team they beat 22-10 last weekend. That set the stage for another prove-it moment for the team's defense. Maybe that's a chance to build some lasting peace in the AFC North ...? No?

No amount of scoreboard-watching, though, would change the Ravens' mission. He told his secondary to man up with receivers across from them, and he sent the blitzes that won the game. Instead, the Ravens looked like they might run away with it in the first half.

The Jackson-led running attack was too much for Cleveland (7-8-1), which was denied its first winning season since 2007.

But the Ravens' old ghosts and newer demons visited them throughout.

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.

Mayfield made impressive throws all night, but he also showed his rookie side with the three interceptions. There were fewer boos then, perhaps out of shock more than anything.

"There were some nerves", tight end Hayden Hurst said. Went nowhere. Their second play, a run by Jackson, ended inches short of the plane. The Colts, only the third team in history to make the playoffs after a 1-5 start, play at Houston next Saturday in the wild card round.

At halftime, the Ravens were up 20-7.
