Browns vs. Ravens, Week 17 live stream

Share

Williams wasn't the only one given a rare chance to show off his hands. The Browns needed to make Jackson a one dimensional quarterback on Sunday.

Thankfully for fans in Baltimore, that's where the similarities end.

As it has so many times for this franchise, it came down to defense.

The second-year corner has played up to an All-Pro caliber level this season but didn't provide one of his best performances against the Browns.

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.

The Browns finished the season 3-2-1 in the division, and established themselves as a team to be reckoned with in the AFC North.

Lamar Jackson has been a revelation in Baltimore with the Ravens going 5-1 since naming the rookie quarterback their starter in Week 11. The Ravens have been phenomenal for much of the season, but the Browns are red-hot heading into this finale. The Jets said goodbye to Todd Bowles, who went 24-40 over four years. Then the touchdown was overturned, and the Ravens were at once unfortunate not to have scored and fortunate not to have surrendered an end-to-end defensive touchdown on another Jackson fumble.

Against Baker Mayfield, it was a 4th-and-10. Ravens linebacker C.J. Baltimore will open the postseason Sunday afternoon at home against the Los Angeles Chargers. They had to win to secure another game in Baltimore. Overall, the Ravens rushed for 179 yards in the first half. Jackson dived over the pile and reached out with his arms to try and break the plane of the end zone. The defense recovered a Jackson fumble at the goal line. 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.

A Browns defender knocked the ball loose, but officials called the play a touchdown on the field that would have given the Ravens a 26-7 lead in the second quarter. Dixon, in particular, looked explosive, consistently picking up large chunks of yardage against a tough Browns defense.

Remembering that disappointment, most of the announced crowd of 70,925 was on its feet as the Browns moved closer to field-goal range with the clock winding down. A running back that struggled to find consistent playing time during his first two seasons due to injuries and suspensions has caught fire over recent weeks.

It's a familiar position for the Ravens, who blew a win-and-they're-in finale a year ago when they yielded a touchdown on a fourth-down play against visiting Cincinnati in the final minute.
