CLEVELAND, Oh. (WSAZ) - It’s been 18 years in the making as the Cleveland Browns are back in the playoffs as they beat Pittsburgh 24-22 Sunday afternoon. The win gives them an overall record of 11-5 and clinches their first playoff berth since 2002. Baker Mayfield threw for 196 yards and 1 touchdown while the Browns rushing attack ran for 192 yards with Nick Chubb and Jarvis Landry scoring on the day.

Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger didn’t play for the Steelers as backup Mason Rudolph threw for 315 yards, two touchdowns and had one interception. The Steelers end the regular season with a 12-4 record.
