CLEVELAND — Throughout the regular season, the Cleveland Browns capitalized on the versatility and overall athleticism of wide receiver Jarvis Landry, and with a very special touchdown on Sunday, Landry joined a well-known Browns player in a specific accomplishment.

Landry notched a touchdown during Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it wasn’t what you might expect. The receiver showed his talents on the ground, rushing into the end zone for six.

With the rushing touchdown, Landry recorded a rushing, receiving and passing touchdown in the same season. Landry showed his arm’s ability with four passing attempts this season—all completed and one for a touchdown.

Landry’s accomplishment of recording a rushing, receiving and passing touchdown made him the first player on the Cleveland Browns to do so since Eric Metcalf did it in 1989.

The Browns made plenty of other history in Sunday’s win over the Steelers as well, including making the playoffs for the first time since 2002, head coach Kevin Stefanski (11) getting the most wins as a first-year head coach of the Browns since Paul Brown (12) in 1946 and quarterback Baker Mayfield joining Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck as the only players in NFL history to record at least 3,500 passing yards with at least 20 touchdown passes in each of their first three seasons.

Now, the Browns will prepare to make history again as they look to win their first playoff game since 1994, slated to take on the Steelers Sunday night at 8:15 p.m. in Pittsburgh during the NFL’s Wild Card round.
