But while the Cleveland Browns quarterback previously feigned ignorance regarding the ongoing gag, he did provide ESPN's Keyshawn Johnson with some insight into the reason for his viral postgame answers.

Mayfield's clip-worthy quotes have always come after wins, which is to say, there's been a lot of them. Entering Monday night, Cleveland lays claim to a 9-3 record -- its best mark since the 1994 season.

In facing the 7-5 Ravens, the Browns are looking to solidify their status as the frontrunner for the top AFC Wild Card spot and gain a game on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North. Baltimore, meanwhile, is fighting for its postseason life, having already been eliminated from contention in the division it won just a season ago.
