Baker Mayfield knew he was going to be fined for what he had to say, but he did not care as he vented some frustration after Sunday’s tough loss to the Chargers.
The Cleveland Browns quarterback threat of a fine did not stop him from calling them out after their 47-42 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers at SoFi Stadium where a terrible pass interference call screwed them out of a victory.
“I mean late in the game–might as well just forward the fine letter. We asked the ref on the sideline how the hell he missed that call,” Mayfield said after the game. “I mean, they’re shoving Donovan Peoples-Jones out of bounds and then Higgy (Rashard Higgins) gets grabbed, so there’s two PIs on one play. They don’t call it.
Their final attempt to win the game came down to a hail mary where there was plenty of contact in the end zone that could have warranted a flag.
As stated above, he was also upset over a pass interference call on fourth down, which set up the Chargers for their game-winning touchdown. Cleveland cornerback A.J. Green was called for interference on a ball directed to Chargers receiver Mike Williams.
Myles Garrett said, was “terrible.”
“We left too many points on the field in the first half. That’s very frustrating. We didn’t do our job enough to just take the ball game away and we left in the hands of someone else. So we gotta be better on that.”
