Baker Mayfield took the snap in victory formation Antworten

The cocky rookie quarterback urged the crowd to make more noise , and when the clock hit zeroes, the stadium’s sound system blasted “Danger Zone.”The Browns have become hazardous to your playoff health.Mayfield outplayed Cam Newton, Jarvis Landry caught a touchdown pass and ran for another score and the Cleveland Browns damaged Carolina’s postseason hopes with a 26-20 win Sunday over the Panthers, who dropped their fifth straight.Article continues below ...Mayfield bravely threw a 51-yard TD pass into traffic to Landry, who had a 3-yard scoring run and added a long run — on a similar call — early in the fourth quarter to set up a go-ahead touchdown.Playing the spoiler role down the stretch, the Browns (5-7-1) kept their faint playoff hopes alive while improving to 3-2 under interim coach Gregg Williams, who needed just five games to match former Browns coach Hue Jackson’s win total over two-plus seasons.“Everybody loves winning,” said defensive end Myles Garrett. “It’s different for us because of the negatives we’ve been through, but that’s all in the past.”Mayfield finished 18 of 22 for 238 yards, continuing his bounce back after throwing three interceptions in the first half last week at Houston. The brash No. 1 overall pick continues to develop and the Browns are growing with him.Mayfield was asked if he woke up feeling as dangerous as he did three weeks ago before beating Atlanta.“I think you know the answer to that one,” he said, drawing laughter.Landry felt that way, too.“I guess waking up feeling dangerous is contagious,” he said. “We pulled together as a team.”There were no smiles or laughs in Carolina’s locker room as the Panthers (6-7) suffered a loss that could haunt them for months and will increase the heat on coach Ron Rivera.Newton passed for 265 yards Andy Isabella Jersey , but overthrew Jarius Wright on 4th-and-goal at the 3 with 2:35 left. Carolina got the ball back, but Newton, who has been playing with a sore right shoulder, badly missed Devin Funchess and was intercepted by Damarious Randall with 57 seconds left.Following the game, a glum Newton didn’t offer any excuses.“We’re done with the cliche sayings, it just comes down to doing our jobs,” Newton said. “I’m not talking about nobody but myself.”Carolina came in just a half-game out of the second wild-card spot in the NFC, but with only three games left, including two against New Orleans, the Panthers are going to need help to make the postseason.Christian McCaffrey had two TD runs for Carolina and finished with 101 total yards.“It stinks,” McCaffrey said. “A lot of people are against us right now, but I’ll fight for every one of these guys. That’s exactly what I’m going to do and I know a lot of guys will do as well. We lost. We’ve lost a few in a row. It’s kind of us against the world right now.”Browns rookie Nick Chubb scored on a 1-yard run to give the Browns a 23-20 lead with 13:05 left. The score came one play after Landry took an inside handoff and weaved his way down field. Greg Joseph clanged the extra point off the left upright, keeping the Panthers within three.Newton drove the Panthers to the 3 before throwing two straight incompletions, ending Carolina’s best chance to take the lead.Mayfield’s 51-yard TD pass to Landry tied it 14-all with 8:27 left in the second quarter.Rolling left out of the pocket to buy some time Jamel Dean Jersey , Mayfield stepped up and confidently delivered a perfect strike to Landry, who was well covered on the play by safety Eric Reid, his former LSU teammate. As fans celebrated, Landry and several teammates sat down in the end zone’s corner and pretended to warm themselves around a camp fire.“It was cold outside,” Landry said, smiling.FAST STARTOn Cleveland’s first play, Mayfield unloaded a pass that traveled more than 60 yards in the air to wide receiver Breshad Perriman for a 66-yard pickup. Two plays later, Landry scored on his short run.HOME SWEET HOMEThe Browns improved to 4-2-1 at FirstEnergy Stadium, clinching their first winning home season since going 7-1 under coach Romeo Crennel in 2007.“That’s pretty cool because the Dawg Pound has always been loyal to us,” said guard Joel Bitonio, who has spent all five of his NFL seasons with the team. “We want every team to say, ‘We don’t want to go to Cleveland to play.'”NEWTON’S LAWWith his first completion, Newton eclipsed 3,000 yards passing for the eighth straight season. He came in needing 1 yard to reach the plateau and surpassed it on a 25-yarder to Curtis Samuel on Carolina’s second snap.Newton joined Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks in history to reach 3 D.K. Metcalf Jersey ,000 yards in each of their first eight seasons.PAY DIRTChubb became the first Browns player to score a rushing TD in five consecutive games since Greg Pruitt in 1975.ROOKIE RECORDMayfield joined Kurt Warner (1999) and Brad Johnson (1996-97) as the only players since 1966 to throw at least one TD pass in each of their first 10 career starts.INJURIES:Panthers: No significant injuries.Browns: C JC Tretter barely made it off the field in the third quarter before dropping to his knees. Tretter, who has played several weeks with a severely sprained right ankle, returned to the game.UP NEXTPanthers: Host New Orleans on Sunday.Browns: At Denver on Saturday. METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Saints coach Sean Payton turned to ice cream, binge-watching and seclusion after his team’s football season came to an excruciating end.Payton was finally ready on Wednesday to stand in front of reporters for his NFL-mandated, end-of-season media availability, some 10 days after New Orleans’ 26-23 overtime loss in an NFC championship game marred by one of the most glaring officiating errors in NFL history — the non-call of pass interference and helmet-to-helmet contact penalties committed by a Los Angeles Rams defensive back late in the fourth quarter.“I would say, honestly, after the game for two to three days, much like normal people, I sat and probably didn’t come out of my room, ate Jeni’s ice cream and watched Netflix,” Payton said. “There’s certain vices you gravitate to. For me, it’s probably sugar.“I don’t know that you ever really get over it Nick Bosa Jersey , but you do get past it,” Payton added. “This time away is healthy.”Payton said he probably would watch this Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Rams and New England Patriots because it’s what people in his profession do.Payton also said he’d received countless phone calls, emails and text messages of support since the game, including a call from Raiders coach Jon Gruden, who was able to relate with Payton on some level. Gruden was coaching Oakland in the 2001-02 playoffs, when an apparent lost fumble by New England’s Tom Brady was infamously ruled an incomplete pass on video review. The overturned call allowed New England to tie the game late and eventually win en route to the franchise’s first Super Bowl triumph.But there was only so much Gruden or anyone else could do or say to console the Saints’ coach.“There aren’t too many people you can call that would be able to reflect on a situation like that,” Payton said. “You hang up the phone and the news is still what it was before you called though.”Had the penalty been called on the Rams’ Nickell Robey-Coleman for hitting receiver Tommylee Lewis in the helmet before Drew Brees‘ third-down pass arrived, the Saints could have run the clock down to the final seconds before attempting a go-ahead field goal. Instead, the Saints kicked with 1:45 to go, leaving the Rams time to drive for a tying field goal.Payton sits on the NFL’s competition committee, which reviews proposed rule changes. Currently, penalties, or missed penalties, cannot be reviewed by video replay , but whether they should be is all but certain to be discussed this offseason.“If you look throughout the history of our game — the forward fumble by the Raiders (in 1978, known as the ‘Holly Roller’) — there’s been these events that at times potentially change rules,” Payton said. “I like the fact that I’m part of that committee and every offseason we all sit down and really try to grind on how to make this game better, safer and then present it to ownership and the other coaches.“Certainly there’ll be topics like this that’ll be brought up,” Payton continued. “The solution is the more challenging thing that we’re all looking for.”Payton did not offer any specific proposals, but said advancements in technology should figure into officiating in general.In New Orleans, Saints fans have responded to the missed call with everything from lawsuits filed on behalf of ticket holders to proposals for a Saints-themed Mardi Gras-style parade at the same time as the Super Bowl. Area politicians have written letters of protest to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.Payton said he hadn’t closely followed fans’ and politicians’ manifestations, but said he hoped they would eventually move on the same way he is trying to do.“It’s not going to happen overnight and it will take a little bit of time, obviously,” Payton said. “But it’s why we like this game. Football is like life. It’s not always going to be how you planned it. It’s not always going to be fair. And sometimes you get punched and you get up, and there’s that toughness and grit element that’s involved with this game that I think fascinates us all with it.”
