Ravens enter playoffs as 1 of the league's hottest teams

The Browns surrendered runs of 15, 24 and 20 on the drive, with Jamie Collins and Joe Schobert both missing tackles on the latter run by Kenneth Dixon.

It prevented a nightmare repeat of a year ago, when all the Ravens had to do was beat the Bengals at home to clinch, but gave up a 49-yard touchdown pass with 44 seconds left to fall.

Mayfield and the Browns offense were able to push the ball downfield in the second half as they scored two touchdowns. The team's Week 17 loss in Baltimore clinched the No. 17 overall pick in April's draft. Though the Browns cannot make the Playoffs, they can secure a winning season with a victory. Throw in the Steelers and two of those four teams will make the Playoffs. They were tied at 24 heading into the final seconds. Waiting in the wings were the Niners, who fell convincingly, 48-32 to the Rams, but only lost 12 games this year and will settle for the second pick. Williams wasn't the only one given a rare chance to show off his hands. Even when the Ravens led by 13 points and had the ball on the Cleveland Browns' 1-yard line late in the second quarter, even when the home team had a nine-point advantage with less than five minutes to play in the fourth, everybody should have known what was coming. Quarterbacks Matt Ryan and Ryan Tannehill each caught touchdown passes. It's also the sixth-most by a linebacker in National Football League history. "As much as it's for me and my play, my defense helped me get to where I'm at".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has confirmed that McIver's case does not appear to be linked to that of the other two detainees. Meng was arrested at the request of United States prosecutors and faces extradition on charges of violating sanctions on Iran.

"I'm proud of how they responded", Williams said.

JOIN THE CLUB: Among those finding themselves in rare company Sunday: Saquon Barkley.

This will be the first home playoff game the Ravens have played since their Super Bowl run in 2012. That gave him 27 for the season, one more than Russell Wilson and Peyton Manning, who had shared the record. "That's who I wanted to see with the last opportunity was him". He hit Breshad Perriman with a 19-yard pass and Jarvis Landry with a 16-yarder to the Ravens' 39. On Monday, Adam Gase (Miami), Vance Joseph (Denver), Marvin Lewis (Cincinnati) and Steve Wilks (Arizona) got their pink slips, as expected.
