CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns pulled out a play they haven't used all season to get their last first-down of the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and guarantee their spot in the playoffs for the first time since 2002.

That play was called the "Maserati," according to Sports Illustrated.

The play was quarterback Baker Mayfield running the ball with running back Kareem Hunt blocking for him.

Browns guard Joel Bitonio told Sports Illustrated that the play was meant to be used for the shortest yardage this week and the team has kept it in their back pocket.

Although the team has not confirmed it,the name "Maserati" may have been a nod to famous Cleveland troll Colin Cowherd, who two years ago said that Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield was more of a Mazda instead of a Maserati.

Another victory for Cleveland.
