BEREA, Ohio – Cleveland Browns fans booed Baker Mayfield multiple times in the second half of Sunday’s 13-10 victory over the winless Detroit Lions. “Not one part of that’s about not being accountable. I’d be the first to tell you I played like s–. I don’t owe that to you guys, I owe that to my teammates.”
After taking a knee to end the game, Mayfield also immediately walked to the locker room, instead of shaking hands with the Lions or celebrating the victory with his teammates on the field.
“My guys know that all I care about is winning. But I’m going to be frustrated if I do stuff to make it harder on us. And I did yesterday. And that’s just flat-out where it was,” Mayfield said.
“He doesn’t feel 100 percent,” said Browns coach Kevin Stefanski, who added that he never considered taking Mayfield out of the game against the Lions.
