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

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

Weddle had the opportunity to earn the incentive a year ago but failed when the Bengals prevented Baltimore from securing a playoff berth.

In the closing stages of the Ravens' game against the Cleveland Browns, they led 26-24, knowing that a win was good enough to guarantee them a playoff place as the winners of the AFC North.

Baltimore amassed more than 200 rushing yards for the fifth time in Jackson's seven starts, with Kenneth Dixon leading the way by going over the century mark but Gus Edwards also playing a big role.

But the real drama came late in the fourth quarter.

The combined record of all 16 opponents next season based on 2018 results is 123-129-2 and Cleveland will face 4 playoff teams (indicated with a *) in 2019 - Baltimore Ravens twice, New England, the LA Rams and Seattle.

Trailing by only two points, the Browns had already advanced past midfield in the final 95 seconds, taking advantage of two circus catches, including one by Breshad Perriman of all people.

Mayfield finished with 3,725 passing yards on the season to along with 27 touchdowns, which set an National Football League record for most throwing scores by a rookie. Any win for Cleveland would see the Pittsburgh Steelers - 13-10 winners over the Cincinnati Bengals - take Baltimore's postseason place. The Browns miss out on their first winning season since 2007.
