CINCINNATI -- Today marked the first game between Hue Jackson and the Cleveland Browns since the firing of coach Jackson, and the Browns were fired up. Baker Mayfield threw a career-high four touchdowns passes in yet another impressive performance. The Cleveland Browns ended an NFL record 25 straight road losses with a 35-20 victory over the Bengals.
As former Browns head coach Hue Jackson watched from the Cincinnati sideline, the Browns surged ahead to a 28-0 lead in the first half. The scoring all starting with a 1-yard touchdown run by Nick Chubb, which came from a drive led by the smart decision making of Baker Mayfield. Mayfield completed 19 of 26 passes for 258 yards and 4 touchdowns. When asked about Hue Jackson, Mayfield responded with, "Somebody who was in our locker room is asking us to play for him, and then he goes to a different team", as he shared his discomfort about the situation.
Browns cornerback Damarious Randall had predicted earlier during the week that if A.J. Green did not play, the Browns would dominate. Green ended up missing the game, and Randall's prediction became true. Randall intercepted Dalton in the second quarter, then proceeded to run out of bounds and toss the football to Hue Jackson.
The Cleveland Browns will look to continue their winning ways on Sunday, December 2nd, versus the Houston Texans. Kickoff is set for 1:00 pm at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
