Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns dominated the Cincinnati Bengals today, blowing out their AFC North rival, 35-20, in a game that wasn't as close as the final score indicates.

This win came with the Browns playing their best in front of their former head coach, Hue Jackson, who was hired by the Bengals shortly after getting fired in Cleveland.

The Browns' decision to fire Jackson was reportedly impacted by the future of Mayfield. Cleveland's ownership reportedly felt it was best for Baker if the franchise moved on from Jackson (and offensive coordinator Todd Haley).

Mayfield certainly lit it up today.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft threw for 258 yards and 4 touchdowns in the win over the Bengals.

Mayfield and Jackson had a pretty awkward greeting following the game, too. Video shows the post-game handshake between the two. Mayfield seemed to want to keep his distance.

Mayfield didn't really "snub" Jackson, of course, but he didn't seem to want any part of that interaction, either.

The Browns improved to 4-6-1 with the win today, while the Bengals dropped to 5-6.
