The Cleveland Browns could ill-afford to lose on Sunday to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but their head coach didn’t do them any favors after he wore a shirt that said ‘Pittsburgh Started It’ earlier in the week.

Following the loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers — Browns reporter Mary Kay Cabot wrote a story about it for Cleveland.com, and Emily Mayfield — wife of Baker Mayfield — asked why this is what the reporter focused her questions on after a hard fought loss.

In response, Cabot tweeted, “I asked exactly one t-shirt question after the game. I asked Baker what he thought of it, and he defended Kitchens, which I thought was pretty cool. He gave a great answer, saying ‘I’ve done much worse.’ Funny, and struck the right note.”

Baker Mayfield fought through injury while struggling to move the offense for most of the day, tossing for just 196 passing yards and one lone touchdown.

The Browns drop to 5-7 and are on the outside looking in with just four more games to go this season.
