Before Sunday’s game, the Browns last win in this series came in a 35-14 win on October 13, 2008.

With the win, the Browns improved to 10-4 on the season. They’re looking at potentially their first playoff season since the 2002 season.

“It’s something that until I got into the league my rookie year that I didn’t know how hard it was to win in the league,” said Mayfield, who’s in his third season. “It’s something to be proud of, but the best part is that everybody in there is like, ‘Yeah, 10 wins but we’re on to the next one.’ Notch on the belt and move on. We’re not done yet.

“And that’s the best part of this team.”

Giants first-year head coach Joe Judge was asked about going for a critical fourth-and-1 from the five yard line.

“Look, I’m not afraid to call things aggressively,” Judge said. “I’m not afraid. I think we have a good scheme in the kicking game to call a fake. I’m not afraid to run the ball fourth-and-1.”
