QB Baker Mayfield breaks National Football League record for TD passes in rookie season

  • Change coaches after this? It’s hard to see why the Browns would

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).

On third down at the 25-yard line, Jackson faked the handoff and took off right down the heart of the Cleveland Browns' defense and outraced everyone as he went the distance on the 25-yard touchdown.

The Browns struggled to get momentum in the first half, as Baker Mayfield could not figure out the Ravens defense and the Browns defense could not slow down the Ravens rushing attack.

Jackson added an 8-yard rushing TD in the second quarter for his first multi-touchdown game this season.

Baltimore already had its quarterback of the future.

Baltimore needed a late fourth-down interception to stifle Baker Mayfield's momentum, secure a 26-24 victory over Cleveland and wrap up the AFC North. His second interception was answered later with a 48 yard TD pass to Jarvis Landry.

"It is pretty special considering some of the rookies who have come in and played", Mayfield said of the record. Overall, the Ravens rushed for 179 yards in the first half. The initial call on the field was a touchdown.

As for the Browns and what I believe, again, is a wide-open search, remember that Jimmy and Dee Haslam have kicked the tires on a lot of coaches over the last few years. The other two times it happened?


Jackson's headfirst leap to the end zone, his hands fully extended with the ball, was ruled a touchdown on the field.

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

With less than three minutes remaining, the Ravens had the ball at the Browns' 3.

Cleveland was able to make a play before the end of halftime, forcing a Lamar Jackson fumble at the goal-line and were able to recover the loose ball.

Mayfield's 27 TDs came in 13 starts.

But, the Browns had possession of the football late on and were edging ever-closer into game-winning field goal range.

This was also Mayfield's ninth game this season with at least two passing touchdowns.

Mayfield also dropped a ideal 38-yard strike over the shoulder of Antonio Callaway on the four-play drive.
