Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield made some headlines after the game last Sunday. Following a win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Mayfield had a brief handshake with Cincinnati staff member and former Browns head coach Hue Jackson.
In the post-game press conference, Mayfield took some shots at Jackson's decision to go work for a division rival after Cleveland fired him earlier this season.
“He left Cleveland and goes in to Cincinnati. I don’t know…it’s just, someone that was in our locker room asking for us to play for him, and then goes to a different team that we play twice a year," Mayfield said. "Everyone can have their spin on it, but that’s how I feel.”
The Mayfield-Jackson story line lasted throughout the week, with the quarterback further criticizing his former coach and also receiving backlash from ESPN's Damien Woody. In case you were wondering how Mayfield's team feels about him, well just take a look at these quotes from offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens.
It is pretty obvious they are behind their rookie signal caller.
Mayfield is 3-5 as a starter for the Browns, who hold a 4-6-1 record on the year. He has thrown for 2,242 yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
The Browns will travel to Houston this weekend to take on the 8-3 Texans.
