Player of the game: Baker Mayfield

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku right catches a three-yard touchdown pass against Cincinnati Bengals strong safety Shawn Williams during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday Dec. 23 2018 in Cleveland

The 23-year-old passed Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson for the National Football League rookie passing touchdown record with his 27th of the season against the Baltimore Ravens.

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.

Quarterback Lamar Jackson finished 14-for-24 for 179 passing yards and 90 rushing yards and two scores, moving to 6-1 as a starter for the Ravens (10-6). Mayfield, the first pick in the 2018 draft, threw three touchdown passes and finishes with the rookie record for TD passes with 27.

Baltimore already had its quarterback of the future.

Week 17 was every bit as tense but ultimately a lot kinder to the AFC North champion Baltimore Ravens this season.

"It is pretty special considering some of the rookies who have come in and played", Mayfield said of the record. Instead, the Ravens looked like they might run away with it in the first half. The initial call on the field was a touchdown.

The Ravens rushed for 296-yards as a team. Perriman, the Ravens' first first-round pick in franchise history to be cut before his rookie contract expired, was booed lustily after a short gain on a reverse on the Browns' first drive.

There will be plenty of time to revel in the team's first AFC North title since 2012 and break down the matchup with Los Angeles in the coming week.

Jackson appeared to add a third touchdown when he jumped over the line and tried to reach the ball over the goal line, but it was overturned and ruled a fumble because it was knocked out of his hands before breaking the plane.

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

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.

Baltimore leads the series 29-10 and is 18-3 against the Browns under Harbaugh, who took over in 2008.

Breshad Perriman, the Raven's 2015 first-round pick, was cut by Baltimore on September 1, and made the Ravens pay on the Browns' second drive. There were blown coverages, poor tackling and little pressure on Mayfield (23-for-42 for 376 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions).

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