After both reviews went in Cleveland's favor, the Browns found themselves left to choose between a 57-yard field goal attempt from a kicker who already missed once on Sunday, or attempting a fourth-down conversion against the a defense that had already intercepted Mayfield twice.
Weddle had the opportunity to earn the incentive past year but failed when the Bengals prevented Baltimore from securing a playoff berth.
Unlike Manning and Wilson, Mayfield did not start all 16 games in order to achieve this record.
It's been a lot of fun watching him over the course of the 2018 season, and I think he's only going to grow more and more as a player.
After killing off the final seconds, the Ravens danced into their locker room, donned caps proclaiming them AFC North champs, and mugged for selfies and shots of each other. After the TD, his second of the season, he held his hand to ear as if to hear the boos that erupted after he carried the ball for 5 yards on a reverse on the opening drive. In the first half they totaled 179 rushing yards, the fourth highest number in franchise history.

"He's just scratched the surface", Williams said. "Everybody needs a pat on the back, even where you're as competitive as that young man".
It's moments like that when I really do believe Mayfield has all the necessary physical tools to be a star in the NFL.
"Obviously, very disappointed for us to not get the win, but it's a great team".
"This team is a no give up team", Williams said. The defense recovered a Jackson fumble at the goal line.
Jackson ran 20 times overall.
"It's exciting to watch him play".
EXPENSIVE SEAT: It might have been the most expensive seat in the National Football League on Sunday. Mayfield finished with 27, but couldn't pull off a comeback to knock the AFC North champion Ravens out of the playoffs. Baltimore earned its 200th regular-season win.
