On Sunday morning, former NFL head coach and current ESPN analyst Rex Ryan kept his feud with Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield rolling.

Ryan showed up to work this morning wearing a brown suit with an orange tie. The move came after Baker Mayfield fired a shot at the former head coach who called him "overrated" earlier in the week.

"It's whatever...if you don't wear orange and brown you don't matter and Rex Ryan doesn't have any colors right now for a reason," Mayfield said.

Ryan didn't just use the outfit to mess with Mayfield, he also had a few words for the second-year quarterback.

"I’m just basing things on fact, what I see. … Baker Mayfield better be happy I’m not in the black and purple today on that sideline because he’d be in trouble," he said via Browns reporter Jake Trotter.

Clearly Ryan wasn't happy with Mayfield calling him out for not being a coach in the league right now - for a reason.

Mayfield faces one of the toughest tests in the NFL this afternoon, going up against a vaunted Ravens defense. If he succeeds, however, we wouldn't be surprised if he fired back at Ryan.

Cleveland and Baltimore kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
