Cleveland Browns Cannot Make the Playoffs But Look to Play Spoiler

Joe Posnanski’s Browns diary The debate surrounding Gregg Williams isn’t much of a debate anymore

Considering the Ravens surrendered 426 total yards of offense, up more than 40 percent from their season average of 286, the takeaways were absolutely critical.

LB Terrell Suggs set a Ravens record for games played with 229, breaking a tie with Ray Lewis.

Baker Mayfield was the Browns' player of the game in a crushing loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

The top-ranked Baltimore defense did make one final stop, and the Ravens defeated the Browns 26-24. Down by nine points with seven minutes left, Cleveland got within a few yards of moving in position for a game-winning field goal in the final minute.

As for the Ravens, they've also hitched their wagon to a rookie quarterback, Lamar Jackson.

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

"I was just doing the math in my own head anticipating that we were going to have to rebut with our own effort to put the game away and come out as AFC North champs", he said. The best record the Browns can finish with is 8-7-1 which would not be enough for Cleveland to punch a ticket to the postseason.

The company has been banking on its Model 3 sedan, the performance of which is seen crucial to the carmaker's future. Q4 deliveries grew to 90,700 vehicles, which was 8% more than our prior all time-high in Q3.

The Ravens rushed for 296-yards as a team.

Perriman sustained a knee injury on the first day of training camp in 2015, was placed on injured reserve in November and finished the season without a catch.

In the second half, Jackson showed off his speed for a 33-yard touchdown, but it was called back on a questionable holding penalty on tight end Maxx Williams. He then broke the rookie passing touchdown record with a 1 yard crossing route to Antonio Callaway.

There was drama as Baltimore Ravens clinched a playoff spot in the dying seconds of their game with the Cleveland Browns. He came up just short before pulling the ball back and losing control of it.

Ward had a terrific year, registering 53 tackles, three interceptions, a forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, and 11 passes defended en route to a Pro Bowl appearance. His second interception was answered later with a 48 yard TD pass to Jarvis Landry. "It's a playoff team", Mayfield said.

Williams could have trotted kicker Greg Joseph out to try a long game-winning field goal, but opted to ride as far as Mayfield could take him. 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.
