Browns’ Baker Mayfield denies Hue Jackson of a hug

Mayfield and the former Browns' head coach had a somewhat awkward post-game meeting on the field on Sunday.

Baker Mayfield issued a strong response to a critical ESPN analyst who called on the Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback to "grow up" following his comments on Hue Jackson.

Jackson was sacked as Browns coach after a Week 8 loss to Pittsburgh on October 28. Just two weeks after being let go, he signed with AFC North-rival Cincinnati as an assistant to head coach Marvin Lewis. Njoku tried to dive to the end zone from the 3 but was stopped before Joel Bitonio and the other lineman pushed him over the goal line. "This is pro football, you're dealing with grown men". In their Week 12 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, quarterback Baker Mayfield played his best outing so far in his nascent career.

"Not even comparable... I didn't lose 30+ games be fake and then do that..." After tossing four TD passes and zero interceptions, he made sure to get in his shots against his former head coach, Hue Jackson, who was sacked by Cleveland less than a month ago and quickly took a job with the Bengals as a defensive assistant.

Cleveland's 35-20 win, inspired by Mayfield's four touchdown passes, snapped a 25-game road losing streak that dated back to October 11, 2015.
