In The Loop: Baker' Mayfield's celebration, Antonio Gibson's LeBron tribute originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
Here are some of the best moments in the sports world right now.
First up, there were a lot of dramatic endings in sports this weekend. One of those finishes was Baker Mayfield leading the Browns down the field to win it over the Bengals, 37-34. The Browns put up 20 points in the fourth quarter to complete their comeback.
Mayfield was caught dancing in the locker room postgame, a completely different mood from the first half.

Next up, Washington rookie running back Antonio Gibson had a day against the Cowboys racking up 128 yards and a TD on 20 carries. When he got in the end zone he celebrated by throwing the chalk up. LeBron James recognized the celebration on Twitter tweeting “Great Game.” That’s some high praise for the rookie coming from the GOAT.
Finally, DK Metcalf made the play of the weekend chasing down Budda Baker on what should have been a pick-six interception. He stopped Baker short of the end zone and this graphic shows just how fast and far Metcalf had to travel to make the stop.
D.K. Metcalf reached 22.64 MPH and traveled 114.8 yards to chase down Budda Baker on his 90-yard interception return (Baker's top speed: 21.27 MPH).

The Seahawks defense stopped the Cardinals from scoring on the ensuing drive, proving Metcalf’s effort was worth it.
