Browns aim to spoil Ravens' season

Since taking over the starting role from Carlos Hyde in Week 7, Nick Chubb had totaled 799 rushing yard and six touchdowns, averaging 4.78 yards per carry.

The 13 consecutive games with a touchdown pass ties him with Brian Sipe and Frank Ryan for fifth in Browns history, one behind Bill Nelsen's 14-game streak between 1969 and 1970.

The Browns are eliminated from the playoffs, even if they win against the Ravens. The Browns took a major risk drafting the prolific, but undersized, quarterback from Oklahoma first overall, but they clearly don't have many reasons to think they made a mistake so far.

"If you want to write a book about this season, probably no one would believe it", coach John Harbaugh said.

So if the Ravens were going out late again, they were going out attacking.

Ward was one of two first-round picks for Cleveland this past May, with quarterback Baker Mayfield representing the other at No. 1.

The Browns finished the season with a 7-8-1 record and fell just games short of making of the playoffs. Humphrey was challenged in the secondary and struggled against a talented Cleveland receiving core, including tight end David Njoku, who boxed him out for a 42-yard gain late in the third quarter.

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.

But on fourth-and-10, with 66 seconds remaining, 364 days after a fourth-down disaster doomed the Ravens' season, C.J. Mosley made a decision to be legendary. Also moving outside his comfort zone was Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater, who lined up for what looked like a field-goal attempt, but took the snap and threw a flawless pass to Levine Toilolo for a touchdown against Green Bay.

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

Baltimore Ravens inside linebacker C.J. Mosley, center, intercepts a pass attempt in the final moments of an NFL football game against the Cleveland Browns, Sunday, Dec. 30, 2018, in Baltimore. He hit Breshad Perriman with a 19-yard pass and Jarvis Landry with a 16-yarder to the Ravens' 39. The Browns recovered his fumble, though it easily could have been a 99-yard touchdown for Cleveland. It does mark the best record for the Browns since 2010 and their first winning record in the AFC North since 2002.

"He's just scratched the surface", Williams said. "Close game and congrats to them".
