Game of the year? It will be hard to top the Baltimore Ravens' 47-42 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football, a game that had twists and turns throughout topped off by a heroic comeback.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson retreated to the locker room while dealing with cramps but returned late in the fourth quarter to throw a 44-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Brown and get Baltimore in range for Justin Tucker's game-winning, 55-yard field goal. Jackson finished with a 99.5 Total QBR. He has four career games with at least a 99.0 QBR, the most of any starting QB since tracking began 15 seasons ago.
The drama had the sports world buzzing on social media, including a big Browns fan who relocated to Los Angeles a few years back.
