On Sunday afternoon a video of Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield staring down Cincinnati Bengals assistant coach Hue Jackson went viral. Mayfield made a play down the sideline and decided to take a long look at his former head coach.

Reaction to the move was mixed, though some believed Mayfield was in the wrong. His current offensive coordinator doesn't have a problem with the move.

Browns offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens was asked about Mayfield's actions from Sunday.

"I mean, I don't know what he did wrong. I don't know. I don't understand what he did wrong. I don't understand what the big deal is. He's in the middle of a game in the National Football League. There's great emotion in a game of football and whatever he does on the football field is on the football field..." Kitchens said.

You can read his full comments below.

Clearly Kitchens doesn't have a problem with what Baker did on Sunday.

Mayfield's beef with Hue Jackson doesn't appear to be going away any time soon. The star rookie quarterback will look to upset Baltimore Ravens fans on Sunday with a win to keep the Ravens out of the playoffs.
