Baker Mayfield Stares Hue Jackson Down As He Runs Past Him

The Cincinnati Bengals will visit the Browns in Cleveland on Sunday, Dec. 23. Mayfield completed a pass that David Njoku took 66 yards all the way down to the Cincinnati three.

With only two games left this season, the Cleveland Browns have a real shot at finishing 2018 with a winning season. While the Bengals enter this one coming off a win over the lowly Oakland Raiders, the roster has only suffered more injuries since the first game against the Browns.

Oh, and they had a secret weapon in Hue Jackson. The Cincinnati head coach gave Jackson a made-up job title and he was there exclusively to give out secrets about the Browns offense.

'Bumblebee' brings Transformers franchise back to life
Bumblebee still has its fair share of action scenes and robot battles, but it is on a less grand scale than the previous films. The film, a prequel, is set in the 1980s, which is when the original Transformers cartoon was aired.

But this season, behind rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield and a midseason coaching swap, the Browns have flipped the script, and it's culminated with something truly astounding in Week 16.

All eyes outside Cleveland will be anxious about the Hue-Baker midfield chat, but Browns fans only care about seeing another win. Besides, to know the Bills can compete with their rivals, we just need to look at the earlier meeting between these two teams, when the Buffalo defense really stepped up and the Patriots needed a late pick-six to cover a double-digit spread. Not after the Browns QB upped the ante by starring down his former coach for an uncomfortably long time after icing a win over the Bengals.
