The Steelers had done their part. And now, following their victory, the team stayed on Heinz Field, united with their fans, eyes glued to the video boards in the stadium. Chants of “LET’S GO BROWNS!” sounded loud, cheering on their divisional rivals playing in Baltimore, four hours away.
Cleveland had trailed by 13 points at halftime, but now, with less than two minutes to play, that deficit was just two. Ravens 26, Browns 24. The ball was in Baker Mayfield’s hands, with his team needing only a field goal to win their fourth-straight game, sending them above .500 and their opponents out of playoff position.
The drive started at the Browns’ own 26. After an incomplete pass to Breshad Perriman, Mayfield went to Perriman again on second down for a 19-yard pickup, which stood after a lengthy review.
The next two plays went almost the same way. An incompletion to Jarvis Landry, and then a 16-yard gain to Landry. This one was initially ruled incomplete as well but was reversed after another tension-building review. When the dust settled, the Browns had 1st-and-10 from the Ravens’ 39.
