Browns cornerback Denzel Ward ruled out for Cleveland’s season finale

Steelers WR Antonio Brown ready with his No. 84 'Browns' jerseys

Mayfield has thrown a TD pass in 13 straight starts, the first Browns QB do so in a single season since Frank Ryan in 1966.

While the schedule won't be released until mid-April, we know who the Browns will play next season. Striving to complete their first winning season since 2007 and eager to play the spoiler's role against the team that left Cleveland for Baltimore after the 1995 season, the Browns have plenty of incentive to beat the Ravens (9-6). All they had to do was defeat the Cleveland Browns to capture the AFC North.

Gregg Williams elected to go for it, the Ravens blitzed again, and Pro Bowl linebacker C.J. Mosley batted the ball before coming down with the Ravens' third interception of the afternoon. Maybe that's a chance to build some lasting peace in the AFC North ...? No?

The Browns lost to the Ravens to close out their season at 7-8-1.

A month after that game, rookie Lamar Jackson took over at quarterback, the defense stiffened, and the Ravens used a 5-1 streak to move past Pittsburgh into first place. The Ravens rushed for a season-high 296 yards against Cleveland and dominated that facet of the game. The Browns recovered his fumble, though it easily could have been a 99-yard touchdown for Cleveland. He hit Breshad Perriman with a 19-yard pass and Jarvis Landry with a 16-yarder to the Ravens' 39.

But on fourth-and-10, with 66 seconds remaining, 364 days after a fourth-down disaster doomed the Ravens' season, C.J. Mosley chose to be legendary. 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.

Jackson appeared to add a third touchdown when he jumped over the line and tried to reach the ball over the goal line, but it was overturned and ruled a fumble because it was knocked out of his hands before breaking the plane. "At least we got the ball back". After throwing a 66-yard-pass to seal the win late in the game, Mayfield stared down Jackson for what seemed like an eternity on the sidelines.

The win ended the season for the Steelers, who had closed out their own victory over Cincinnati minutes earlier and were standing on their home field, cheering for the Browns as they watched the end of the game in Baltimore on the scoreboard.
