Browns' Baker Mayfield breaks National Football League record for touchdown passes by a rookie

Tucker kicked four field goals, and while each was comfortably in Tucker's range, nothing is guaranteed.

Unlike Manning and Wilson, Mayfield did not start all 16 games in order to achieve this record.

"There were some nerves", tight end Hayden Hurst said. Inactive due to injury, Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette spent much of his team's 20-3 loss to the Texans sitting on the bench, talking with teammate T.J. Yeldon (who was active but didn't play) and seemingly disinterested in the action.

"You'll find out", Weddle said. Overall the Ravens rushed for 296 yards, and the Browns missed tackles all afternoon. Flacco was behind center in 2012, when Baltimore captured its last division crown and ultimately won the Super Bowl.

Cleveland's victory in October was its first over the Ravens since 2015, but seven of the past 11 games have been decided by eight points or fewer. A Browns win combined with a Steelers win over the Bengals would send Pittsburgh to the playoffs, while the Ravens would be eliminated.

"I'll make sure I say something about it on the plane ride home", interim coach Gregg Williams said. "And he is competitive".

Mayfield made impressive throws all night, but he also showed his rookie side with the three interceptions.

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

"This team is a no give up team", Williams said. He got behind cornerback Tavon Young and caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from Mayfield.

Jackson had a 33-yard TD run with 10:28 left in the third quarter wiped out by a holding call. The former Central Florida standout had a brief stint with the Redskins before latching on with Cleveland, where he's caught 13 passes for 295 yards and a score. "We have a lot of respect for him as a player". "He's a leader now", said Ravens rookie Gus Edwards, who chipped in with 76 yards rushing.

With favorable results, the Ravens could have entered kickoff knowing that the AFC's No. 2 seed and a first-round bye were within grasp.

The Browns do have an opportunity to play spoiler against the Ravens.

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. Whether it's Baltimore or another team next season, that play earned Mosley a payday.
