Baker Mayfield's wife, Emily Mayfield, came under fire on social media on Sunday for a post she shared on her Instagram Story.

The Browns beat the Lions on Sunday, though it wasn't a great day for Mayfield at quarterback. He had a rough game and was booed at one point by fans. Mayfield reportedly ran off the field without celebrating the win and then refused to speak with the media.

Sunday night, Emily Mayfield shared a post on her Instagram Story that was critical of the rest of the team.

Emily Mayfield has since addressed the controversy on Twitter.

"I also love the guys on this team. I respect every single one of them. Make a story out of whatever you want; I’m NEVER hating on them. They put it out there every week, many have injuries no one ever hears about, and they’re all tough as hell!" she wrote.

The Browns beat the Lions, 13-10, on Sunday afternoon.

Cleveland improved to 6-5 with the win, while Detroit dropped to 0-9-1 on the season.

The Browns will return to the field on Sunday night against the Baltimore Ravens. Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. E.T.
