Nick Bosa is a legend for this.
Back in September 2017, the Oklahoma Sooners beat Bosa’s Ohio State Buckeyes and Baker Mayfield took to midfield with a Sooners flag and intentionally grounded it into the Buckeyes’ “O” logo.
Bosa never forgot that moment.
The 49ers rookie defensive end tackled Mayfield towards the end of the first half, then he proceeded to trot, swing his arms three times, and plant an imaginary flag on the field as payback.
Bosa wasn’t finished.
After the game, Bosa ran out on the field with an actual flag and did the gesture one more time just to rub it in Mayfield’s face.
“I think everybody knows what that was for,” Bosa said after his 49ers demolished the Browns 31-3, per The Plain Dealer. “Just wanted to get payback. He had it coming.”
“The image was in my head pretty good so I kind of had a good idea,” Bosa said.
It’s not often Mayfield has been kept quiet both on and off the field, but Bosa and the 49ers surely made it happen.
