CLEVELAND, OH -- Lamar Jackson tossed three touchdowns in the first half, and ran for 103 yards en route to locking up the top seed in the AFC Playoffs. The Ravens got off to a sluggish start out of the gates, before finding the endzone twice in the final 1:48 of the first half despite having 0 timeouts remaining. Jackson connected with fellow Pro-Bowler Mark Andrews for both touchdowns in the first half, as the Ravens rolled to a 31-15 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

Following the loss to the visiting Baltimore Ravens, the Browns were officially eliminated from the postseason, and first year head coach Freddie Kitchens is on the hot seat. Mayfield found Odell Beckham in the endzone to cut the Ravens lead down to i9 points, leading to Freddie Kitchens choosing to go for two, rather than making it a one possession game with an extra point. Ricky Seals-Jones dropped a wide open pass on the two point conversion to put the game out of reach with a few minutes remaining in the game.

Frustration within the Browns organization continued on to week 16, with Odell Beckham Jr throwing his helmet on the sideline after exchanging words with Head Coach Freddie Kitchens as the Browns dropped their 9th game of the season. Baker Mayfield finished the game with 192 passing yards with two touchdowns and one interception. The Browns struggled to get the run game going, feeding Chubb 15 carries for 45 yards. Pro-Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry lead the Browns in receiving with 8 catches for 74 yards.

The Cleveland Browns' disappointing season will wrap-up with a road game in Cincinnati next Sunday. Kickoff on Sunday December 29th is set for 1:00 pm ET at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio. Check out highlights and post game sound from today's game below!
