Baker Mayfield is currently attempting to lead the Cleveland Browns to a comeback road victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Browns currently trail the Bucs, 23-16, late in the fourth quarter.

Mayfield has played really well in the second half, leading the Browns on some touchdown drives. He just had a big run to keep a Cleveland drive alive, too.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft had a long run on 2nd and 26 for a first-down.

Mayfield was blown up on the play, taking a hit to the head. It looked like a pretty typical targeting penalty.

However, no penalty was called.

Browns fans are not happy.

Here's a longer look at the play:

That certainly seems like a hit worthy of a penalty.

Mayfield and the Browns are trailing the Bucs, 23-16, with about 3:30 to go. Cleveland just missed on a 4th and goal from the 1-yard line, giving the ball back to Tampa Bay.
