(AP Photo/Bill Kostroun)EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Baker Mayfield coughed up the ball — and the Cleveland Browns' chances to wrap up a playoff spot. After a 23-16 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday, the Browns will need to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday if they're going to end the NFL's longest playoff drought. The call was upheld by video review, and the Jets (2-13) sealed their second straight victory after an 0-13 start. Mayfield then marched the Browns downfield, and Nick Chubb's 1-yard run made it 20-10 with 2:56 left in the third quarter.

Alabama returners averaged more than 30 yards on both kickoffs and punts, putting Texas A&Ms defense behind before the first snap of each drive. Instead, Spiller fumbled on the following Texas A&M possession and gave the ball back to Alabama just 26 yards from the goal line. Texas A&M ended up punting, and Alabama scored on the following possession to go up 40-20 early in the fourth quarter. Alabama sacked Mond five times, and to show comparison, the Tide only punted twice during the game.
