Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (6) celebrates a touchdown by running back Nick Chubb during the first half of an NFL football game against the Baltimore Ravens, Monday, Dec. 14, 2020, in Cleveland.

Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns are playoff bound.

The former Oklahoma quarterback led the franchise to a 24-22 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday to secure its postseason spot. Mayfield picked up a crucial first down late in the fourth to preserve the victory.

The Browns (11-5) are back in the playoffs for the first time since 2002 and Mayfield, the 2018 NFL Draft's first overall pick, is a major reason why.

The 2017 Heisman Trophy winner finished the regular season with 3,367 passing yards and 25 touchdowns. 

The Browns will face the Steelers in the AFC wild-card round.
