Baker Mayfield rips into fake Hue Jackson following Browns win vs. Bengals

"Left Cleveland, goes down to Cincinnati".

Hue Jackson, against all odds, began working for a new team right after being let go by the Cleveland Browns, and the immediacy of the role change for Jackson has rubbed some members of the Browns the wrong way.

Jackson was of course fired by Cleveland a few weeks ago and was quickly hired as a special assistant to Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis.

Jackson was sacked as Browns coach after a Week 8 loss to Pittsburgh on October 28.

Mayfield is showing the athleticism and accuracy that made the Browns gamble on him in the draft instead of going with Sam Darnold, Josh Allen or Josh Rosen. Things happen in pro football. In their Week 12 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, quarterback Baker Mayfield played his best outing so far in his nascent career.

Mayfield responded to the ESPN analyst's comments on Instagram.

"Not even comparable... I didn't lose 30+ games be fake and then do that..." While he was being held by safety Jessie Bates and while Cincinnati players were swiping at the ball, three Browns came and shoved Njoku into the end zone.

Following his pick, Randall found Jackson on the sidelines and mocked his former coach by handing him the intercepted ball.

Mayfield threw for 258 yards and tossed four touchdowns with no interceptions in their 35-20 win on the road against their AFC North rivals.
