Browns' Damarious Randall handed the ball to Hue Jackson after an interception

Mayfield was upset with comments made about him by ESPN's Damien Woody, who said the QB was acting childish and hypocritical for saying Jackson should not have joined the Bengals' staff after he was sacked last month in Cleveland.

Jackson spent just over two seasons as the Browns' head coach before being fired at the end of October.

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. Mayfield said, per Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot. Jackson was on the Bengals' sideline for their game against Cleveland on Sunday, which the Browns dominated to the tune of a 35-20 victory. He was hired earlier this month as an assistant by Cincinnati. Former NFL player Damien Woody criticized Mayfield on ESPN's First Take, saying the rookie needed to "grow up". Things happen in pro football. Mayfield, however, quickly responded to Woody with a comment posted on First Take's Instagram page. "Good try though buddy".

Keep in mind, too, that these comments from Brees came before the Saints and Browns met in Week 2, one game before Mayfield made his debut in a relief appearance in a win over the Jets in Week 3.

Mayfield admitted after the game he wasn't happy with Jackson taking a job with the Bengals.

With the win, the Browns earned their second straight with interim coach Gregg Williams to improve to 4-6-1.
