This clash certainly delighted all football fans, as the lead changed hands several times in the fourth quarter.
The Browns (9-4) first scored two touchdowns to take the lead by one point.
With two minutes to go, Lamar Jackson found Marquise Browns on 44 yards to give his team a lead. The Ravens quarterback (8-5) had just returned from the locker room, after being forced to leave the game due to cramps.
Recovering the ball, the Ohio club reached the pay zone in 47 seconds and tied 42 to 42.
However, they left too much time on the dial. Baltimore’s offense passed 38 yards and kicker Justin Tucker sealed the game with a field goal of 55 yards.
This gain was very important for the Ravens who are fighting directly with the Browns for a playoff spot in the American Association.
Before the events of the last two minutes of play, nine majors were entered via races, which had not happened since 1922 in the NFL.
For the Ravens, Jackson and Gus Edwards crossed the goal line with the ball in hand twice, while JK Dobbins achieved the feat once.
For their part, the Browns have seen running backs Nick Chubb (twice) and Kareem Hunt, as well as quarterback Baker Mayfield amassing touchdowns on runs.
