It’s a game that saw the injured Mayfield throw two interceptions while completing just 15-of-29 passes as he deals with and plays through three different injuries.
In surprising fashion, Mayfield did not take part in a mandatory post-game media session. For their part, the Browns refused to give a reason why the former No. 1 pick skipped the session.
This didn’t stop Mayfield’s wife, Emily, from taking to social media to blast the quarterback’s teammates.
“No one better say anything bad about Baker Mayfield after this game,” she wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. “I don’t think I have seen toughness like this in a while. Maybe the rest our team should take the hint and get tougher.”
That’s not subtle in any way.
Baker Mayfield, 26, is dealing with injuries to his knee, shoulder and foot. He had in the past said that he has never played through so much pain.
“It’s been tough, but I don’t think anybody gives a damn,” Mayfield said ahead of Sunday’s game. “So, there’s no reason to get into that. Nobody cares. Nobody wants to feel bad for us. So, it is what it is. It’s all right.”
Apparently, his wife did not get this memo.
