Browns @ Ravens

The Browns defeated the Ravens in overtime in Week 5, 12-9, snapping a five-game losing streak in the series. Cleveland has not won consecutive games over Baltimore, nor swept the season series, since 2007; the Ravens are 13-2 at home against the Browns since 2003.

The Browns have won three straight games for the first time since 2014. The franchise has won four consecutive games only once since its return to the NFL in 1999: the Browns closed the 2009 campaign with four consecutive victories.

The Ravens have won five of their last six games, averaging 218.5 rushing yards per game in that stretch. Baltimore looks to clinch the AFC North title for the first time since its Super Bowl-winning 2012 campaign; a win on Sunday would also give the team a third straight year-over-year increase in wins.

Baker Mayfield's 11 TD passes in the last five games tied (with three others) for the most in the NFL in Weeks 12-16. Mayfield's 24 TD passes this season are the second most by a Cleveland QB since 1984, topped by only Derek Anderson's 29 in 2007.

In Saturday's road win over the Chargers, Lamar Jackson was giveaway-free for the first time in his six starts and surpassed 200 passing yards for the first time (204). Jackson has gone 97 straight pass attempts without throwing an interception.

The Ravens look to secure their 11th playoff berth -- all of them coming since 2000 -- and their first since 2014. Baltimore has 15 postseason wins since 2000, tied for second most in that span; Cleveland is one of four teams without a playoff victory in this century (Buffalo, Cincinnati, Detroit).

Would love to see the Browns break .500, but they're gonna fall short. The Mayfield Express will crash and burn in Baltimore.
