Baker Mayfield Blasts Hue Jackson for Jumping to Cincinnati in Postgame Interview

If you think you're having a bad Sunday just look at the day Hue Jackson is having.

The Bengals' special assistant to head coach Marvin Lewis, fired by the Browns on October 29 along with offensive coordinator Todd Haley, was on the familiar end of the scoreboard Sunday afternoon - a loss.

The meeting marked the first time Cleveland had faced Cincinnati since Jackson joined Marvin Lewis's coaching staff as a special assistant after Jackson was sacked as the Browns coach earlier this season.

The latter happened, and it came with a bit of stinginess from Mayfield, who tossed four touchdowns and shook hands with Jackson after the game but appeared to resist the embrace Jackson reached for when he patted the back of Mayfield's head.

Here's who else gets our game balls from Sunday's Bengals beating.

Jackson tried to show Baker Mayfield some love in the handshake line after the game, but the rookie quarterback essentially snubbed him.

Clearly, players on the Browns, Mayfield included, aren't happy that Jackson landed on his feet, especially when one considers he joined the only other National Football League team in Ohio. Former NFL player Damien Woody criticized Mayfield on ESPN's First Take, saying the rookie needed to "grow up". A grateful Njoku gave the ball to Bitonio to spike.

The Browns have also earned their second divisional win in the same season for the first time since the 2014 campaign. After the game, Garrett lamented the missed sacks more than he wanted to celebrate the one he got.
