CLEVELAND – Case Keenum got his second win, filling in for Baker Mayfield on Sunday as the Cleveland Browns ended their dismal season with a 21-16 win over the playoff-bound Cincinnati Bengals, who left quarterbac­k Joe Burrow at home and played their backups.

Keenum threw touchdown passes to Jarvis Landry and Demetric Felton as the Browns (8-9) completed a sweep of the surprising AFC North champions. D’ernest Johnson rushed for 123 yards, and star running back Nick Chubb only had nine carries and finished the season with with 1,259 yards.

Keenum, who replaced Mayfield and beat Denver earlier this season, connected with Landry on a 26-yard scoring pass in the first quarter. He later dumped a pass to Felton, who weaved his way to the end zone to make it 21-10.
