The Cleveland Browns suffered one of the most-crushing losses of the season on ESPN’s Monday Night Football last night.
Cleveland lost to Baltimore, 47-42, in one of the wildest games of the NFL season.
The Browns trailed by 14 points in the second half only to take the lead late. The Ravens staged a late comeback, as Lamar Jackson returned to the game just in time to lead his team on a game-tying drive. The Browns had an answer, but they scored too quickly, allowing the Ravens to win the game with a field goal.
Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield said Jackson’s late-game heroics “was like the scene out of a movie.”
Mayfield played extremely well, throwing for 343 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. His wife, Emily Mayfield, posted a heartwarming message on social media following the game.
“Extremely proud wife tonight and always,” she tweeted.

It will take a while for the Browns to get over this loss, but Cleveland is still in pretty good shape for the playoffs.
The Browns are now 9-4 on the season with three games remaining. The Ravens, meanwhile, improved to 8-5 on the year.
Cleveland will look to get back in the win column this weekend against the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football.
