The dust has yet to settle on the 2018 season but the second half turnaround and Baker Mayfield's incredible rookie season has just about everyone excited for what's to come in 2019. "They were disrespectful, selfish and their behavior was unbecoming that of a professional football player", the team executive said in a statement after the game.

The NFL fined Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield $10,026 on Saturday for "unsportsmanlike conduct" during the Browns' 26-18 win against the Cincinnati Bengals last week, according to Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot. All they had to do was defeat the Cleveland Browns to capture the AFC North.

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

Jackson gave Baltimore a 17-7 lead with touchdown runs of 25 yards and 8 yards, his first multi-score game in the NFL. Breshad Perriman tiptoed in for a 19-yard catch near the sideline.

It remains to be seen but you're not going to find a more electrifying runner at the quarterback position than Lamar Jackson right now.

"It is pretty special considering some of the rookies who have come in and played", Mayfield said of the record. The defense recovered a Jackson fumble at the goal line. However the officials blew the play dead because the call on the field was touchdown. Williams wasn't the only one given a rare chance to show off his hands.

But on fourth and 10, Mosley abandoned a pass rush, dropped into short coverage and swiped the pass to send the Ravens and their fans into a frenzy.

With favorable results, the Ravens could have entered kickoff knowing that the AFC's No. 2 seed and a first-round bye were within grasp.

The Ravens were fighting for a division championship and a playoff spot. What has also turned this team around is the performance of Gregg Williams and Freddie Kitchens, who took the place of Hue Jackson and Todd Haley after they were fired. For tonight, John Harbaugh and the Ravens can finally breathe a Charm City-sized sigh of relief, as they've finally exorcized the demons haunting them from last year's loss.

The game was over, the Ravens won, and fans can now start looking ahead to a home playoff game against the Chargers.
