It has become increasingly obvious that there is some bad blood between Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield and former head coach Hue Jackson.

During today's game against the Cincinnati Bengals there was an incident where Mayfield stared down Jackson while he was on the sidelines for Cincinnati.

Following the game, Mayfield was asked why he stared down Jackson, to which he reportedly smirked and replied, "I don't know what you're talking about."

You can see the incident in question between Mayfield and Jackson here:

Mayfield led the Browns to a 26-18 win over the Bengals, good for the team's seventh win of the season.

It is the second time this season that Mayfield led the Browns to a win over the Bengals and his former head coach.

Since coming in as the backup and leading a comeback win over the Jets in Week 4, Mayfield has gone 6-6 as a starter.

Jackson was fired by the Browns after the team started the season 2-5-1. The Browns are now 7-7-1.
